Creative Anti-Smoking Ads – Must See

Whist browsing the internet at the weekend I came across what might possibly be the worst anti-smoking advert ever created…EVER!!! Now I know that what I just said seems like quite a bold statement to make but I am sure you will agree. Seriously, I challenge any of you reading this to look at the advert below and not laugh. If anything this advert makes me want to start smoking, it really is that bad.

For what looks like a bad valentines day poster designed by an infant using Microsoft Paint this surely would be better placed on some mother’s fridge door with the rest of the stickmen and other crayon drawings.

Lucky for the smokers of the world there are some very talented people out there who have come up with the following amazing anti-smoking posters.

Which ones do you feel are the most powerful? If you was/are a smoker, would any of these encourage you to stop smoking?
