Quit Stupidity Anti-Smoking Ads

By: Ayman - Published: Oct 3, 2008 • References: adsoftheworld
These ads for the INEN Cancer Prevention Center take a comical approach to raise awareness about the dangers of smoking.

The concept of the campaign is to show extremely stupid suicidal stunts that any reasonably intelligent person would never do. The ads then proceed to tell you, "Smoking is the stupidest way to commit suicide. Quit Stupidity."

Some of the examples of these stupid stunts include scaring the barber while he is shaving your beard with a sharp blade, being used as a crash-test dummy and dressing as a zebra and going into the lion's cage.

The campaign was done by Pragma DDB, Lima, Peru with a creative team that consists of Ricardo Chadwick, Alvaro Naddeo, Emilio Diaz, Luben Petkoff, Alberto Naddeo, and Marcelo Naddeo. Stats for Dumb Stunts for Cancer Prevention Trending: Older & Mild
