Despite what the Truth Campaign has taught us about the dangers of cigarette use, there’s still one fact they can’t deny: smoking makes you look really, really cool. This has never been truer than in the video below, which features every cigarette that was smoked in the first three seasons of “Mad Men.” It’s got everything that made smoking in the ’60s so great: pregnant women smoking. Smoking on planes. Smoking after giving blood. Smoking in bed. A child smoking. Smoking in pajamas. Smoking weed.
As someone who used to smoke (tobacco use is mandatory in war zones), I now find the smell of cigarettes completely repulsive. But the sequence of Don Draper lighting up is almost enough to give me second thoughts. He just looks SO COOL.
