The tobacco industry and its lobbyists will do and say just about anything to protect their profits. Even in the face of irrefutable science, insurmountable evidence, studies, warnings and testimonials—and millions of deaths caused by tobacco use—they’re still determined to shill for their product using any means necessary. Their alternate reality would be entertaining if it weren’t literally killing us. We collected a few clips of industry talking heads portraying tobacco as safe to prove our point. Even on camera, they’re not afraid to bend the truth or outright lie if it means they can avoid new tobacco regulations and protect their ability to sell a product that kills more than half of its users. And protect their ability to make a killing while doing it.
Tobacco Industry and big pharma have a lot in common. Both keep harmful findings from the public. They target younger audiences and lobby hard. Both allowed to sell harmful products simply by publishing a warning. Big pharma donated $3 million to Hillary Clinton alone in 2016 and millions to other politicians.

There's a rock 'em, sock 'em battle brewing between the Interactive Advertising Bureau and Ad Block Plus. During IAB's keynote Monday, IAB CEO Randall Rothenberg blasted the ad block company as being "profiteers" that's blocking free speech. He said that ad block firms obstruct the online advertising industry by limiting user options and obstructing pricing data. Adblock Plus responded it remains "interested in discovering better, more sustainable ways for publishers and content creators to get paid."

Some thoughts from me (the guy who made this movie). I am a big tech nerd. I slept on the streets to get the very first iPhone, when I was a teenager I would wait all night at the mall for a new video game. For the 2013 launch of the iPhone 5s I made a short video about the lines in NYC, most of the video was of enthusiastic Apple fans, not unlike myself, eagerly waiting to get their hands on the new iPhone. There was also a percentage of line sitters that lacked all enthusiasm, one in particular was asleep with her head inside of a garbage bag. Those images bothered me, they were also the most talked about aspect of that 4 minute video. For this year's iPhone 6 launch my intention was to cover that aspect of the story - sitters there for reasons other than their enthusiasm for the p...

Tobacco smoking is the inhalation of smoke from burned dried or cured leaves of the tobacco plant, most often in the form of a cigarette. People may smoke casually for pleasure, habitually to satisfy an addiction to the nicotine present in tobacco and to the act of smoking, or in response to social pressure.
