I work at a store that sells this product.
The Lorrilard distributor kept hammering away that Stephen Dorff was the spokesman, and I kept saying "Who?". He acted offended when I told him to stop talking, whipped out my phone, went to IMDB, found out who he was, and responded with "Oh, I was thinking of Tim Conway."

There are people who are really into the accessories that can come with some of these things.
One acquaintance of mine showed me a setup where you can plug it into your PC via USB, charge it, and still puff away while it charges.
"So it turns your computer into a hookah that plays video games?"
If they used that as their slogan, they'd sell a LOT more of these.

Finally the dreams of every scifi writer in the 1960s regarding the future of smoking has been fulfilled.
The "Vaping Community" is sorely under-represented here. I only remember one clip of a guy who donned a harness ( and you know what _that_ means... ) and proceeded to smoke a few ounces of some kind of motor oil out of a saxophone he plugged into the wall.
Vaping Community! Present!

"without infecting those around me"
That's a strange choice of words for a commercial. You'd think they would have tried going with "without upsetting those around me" or "without some oversensitive bitches throwing a hissy fit".
I'm pretty sure he said "affecting"
Tell you what. The next time you go out to a place where people are drinking, will you let them mist your clothes with whatever they're drinking so you'll smell of it for the rest of the day? You won't even get any secondhand effects, so this one's all "hissy fit" just for you.
See, it's Nazis like you who are destroying our nation. It's time to take our freedom back!
One time a beer-swilling indigent told me that bans on smoking were Nazi-tactics -- LITERALLY -- One of the Nazis main lines in the 30s was a smoking ban.
I have yet to confirm this information.
"After the collapse of Nazi Germany at the end of World War II, American cigarette manufacturers quickly entered the German black market. Illegal smuggling of tobacco became prevalent, and the anti-smoking campaign started by the Nazis was silenced. In 1949, approximately 400 million cigarettes manufactured in the United States entered Germany illegally every month. In 1954, nearly two billion Swiss cigarettes were smuggled into Germany and Italy. As part of the Marshall Plan, the United States sent tobacco to Germany free of charge; the amount of tobacco shipped into Germany in 1948 was 24,000 tons and was as high as 69,000 tons in 1949. The Federal government of the United States spent million on this scheme, to the delight of cigarette manufacturing companies in the United States, who profited hugely."

My brother smokes these things all the time with no warning. You're just sitting there and all of a sudden the whole room smells like pancakes and syrup. Not as vile as cigarette smoke certainly, but still a little off putting.

My dad is using these to help him quit smoking. He hasn't smoked a real cigarette in a couple months, and he keeps saying he's gonna quit these, but he can't quite do it. One of the benefits for him is that he can smoke in the living room while watching baseball (my mom has asthma and he wasn't able to smoke in the house for years). As long as he isn't smoking real tobacco any more, I'm all for it. Whatever it takes.
I still, however, find this particular commercial vile and manipulative.

They're okay, but most of the flavorings used are pretty sickly sweet after a short while. I went back to snus (the Swedish kind, not that vile Camel shit) after a spending 0 on vaping paraphenalia a few years ago.

They smell like burning plastic and they look colossally stupid. They are just as annoying to sit next to since it sounds like the person is constantly smoking a bowl. Heroin addicts would not tolerate this level of indignity, it amazes me how little class nicotine addicts have.
Get a real vice, filthy people.

Can I charge it with my Google Glass while talking on my bluetooth headset?
