      I always get anti smoking ads on IRvision almost every video mostly the real cost ones or the little lungs,but it’s been happening for years, when I first saw the teeth/box one I was actually terrified

    3. Disciplexeon The Operator

      Damn those were so bad it makes me want to take up smoking

    4. BillGaming

      8:59 Major death influence on this one btw

    5. ILoveMyDog

      2:43 I can’t lie that was kinda funny. Forgive me all father for I have failed you🥺

    6. Brooklyn Krause

      I don't look through tiktok, but on the Console stores there's a video game called "One escapes" and it uses the topic of a horror game to capture gamers into a anti smoking ad

      1. Chris Hansen

        yes makes me wanna smoke

    7. Kyle Leww

      Real cost was actually good, fucking scary

    8. Dmitry Molotov

      10:27 that looks like a doctor who checks her breathing because she has a sprained ankle if you catch my drift

    9. Langley Polk


    10. elias _410

      Whatever music played at "sponsor time" was great, I wanna hear more of that

    11. First Name Last Name

      I quit right when I turned 20. I’m 21 now and I’m already regretting ever having done it. My lungs are so much weaker than when I started vaping at 17. It’s a horrible feeling

    12. C4VEM4NL4WYER

      nothing has ever made me want to start smoking more than these ads

    13. SeeShu

      this reminds my ALOT form one of the south parks episode

    14. vexify

      Seeing my dad smoke made me never want to since not only it’ll fuck you up if you don’t start smoking for a bit you’ll get short tempered and just 😬

    15. Nunyo Bisnus

      It would be like a if we saw a left shark meme in 2020

    16. King Of The Fleetians

      As someone who's 16, I can vouch that a good amount of the people in my immediate age range really don't have an attention span longer than 10 seconds

    17. The

      Wait, was that Ryan higa? 3:37

    18. NomadicSkies 3

      Why do all of the people that have sense aren’t famous and have a trillion subscribers? Eddy as an example doesn’t have enough subscribers wtf people go subscribe.

    19. Coy Boy

      Hey eddy I’m 14 and I have before and it is hard to stop but it’s possible this helps more than campaigns and dare made me want to start

    20. MegCortes

      i gt an anti smoking tik tok ad before this video

    21. Joe Booler

      Update (to nothing): Ever since this dropped, I got a lot more SnapChat ads with the girl reading the tweets than the childish BS (in fact, havent seen one of those in forever, but im also not on social media a bunch so idk)

    22. UNnaturallyBlue

      I'm very happy to have a spiritual sequal to the video I first found you with, the DARE ads.

    23. Ddhfacetyy

      Nooooooooo victor no

    24. MassivePonyFan

      I switched to vaping and am very happy I did. My lungs feel a lot better every day.

    25. Just Chillin Out

      the best way to make people quit is to use scare tactics

    26. Hilton Klitzna

      Bruh just noticed nigahiga during the unicorn puking. Fuckinnthrowback

    27. ya boi

      I hate truth their annoying and they don't do shit but omg those dumb ass memes

    28. Cryptic Homemaker

      During college, my school did this "make the campus smoke free", which I supported cause I am not a smoker and those who did smoke on campus never followed the rules to not liter or keep it to a designated area. This change was through the Truth Initiative. Another girl and I were brought on as interns to help change campus policy and perception of said policies. We even went to Washington, DC to the Truth Headquarters, for preparing and learning what they wanted us to do. And man, it really does just seem like a bunch of adults grasping at what they think the cool kids will be attracted to. I think Truth has done great things and can continue to do great things, however, they're just going about it all wrong. I worked with them, and still think this stuff is lame as hell.


      dude.......was that ryan higa?

    30. Cassidy Stout

      also i remember the scary one very well, like the guy ripping out a tooth to pay for his cigarettes, that was a good one

    31. Cassidy Stout

      i absolutely cannot believe i just saw a magician in this video

    32. BillyBlocks

      I think a better campaign would be to get influencers (from all different genres) to talk about the dangers of smoking.

    33. FN Gaming

      at least where i live most of us who do or did vape learned about it from the truth initiative and thats what caused people to start

    34. Graham Peterson

      I don’t even smoke and I feel like I should stop. Good job Eddy

    35. Why me

      Shrek McLovin same

    36. alastor lapid

      The way that girl just popped on that girl's phone is terrifying.

    37. Sauce_Aux

      Damn there was Truth ads in skate and bike magazines back when I was 11, in like 2000 ... I figured they would have rebranded at this point. The ads are always gonna suck, cuz the tobacco companies pay for them-So of course they’ll do the bare minimum 😂

    38. chillednthrilled

      My fingers were crossed so hard at the sponsor time title card that this was actually sponsored by #truth

    39. NoahTM

      1:26 I wanna be the badass kid who's smoking a fucking old timey tobacco pipe in highschool

    40. Amanda Bermudez

      Another issue is that companies and people take being “kid friendly” and censorship for children as more important. I don’t know why people think that censorship is more important than being honest with children. Companies have a hard time reaching the younger demographic that are on the internet, a lot companies and their products or campaigns are targeted at children and in turn try to also make it “kid friendly” as well as “relatable” and they miss the mark everytime. One of the biggest disconnect adults have with children and teens is treating them like they aren’t humans dealing with problems and growing up with a complicated mind and complicated views on the world they live in. Companies just further push this disconnect by making shit kid friendly/relatable. Treat teens and kids like actual humans beings and there would be no problem.

    41. vampsk84

      I was at warped tour in 2017, and someone from truth walked up to me and asked if i wanted some free stuff. At the time i had no clue what truth was so i was like fuck yeah i want some free stuff. So they had me sign up for their email or whatever and they gave me some shitty stickers or something but i have been getting cringe up in my email for the past 4 years its sick

    42. IllogicalClover03

      I’m 23 almost 24 and I feel the impact on my lungs from when I was fresh outta high school. It’s not worth it guys.

    43. Bert Harbinson

      My entire family smokes thats all the scare I need to not smoke besides I promised my nana but I will smoke cigars and weed though but not cigarettes

    44. GigaPixel

      I had TiVo growing up so I'd just skip the all the ads. Problem solved.

    45. Deconyus

      Vapes should never have targeted anyone under 18 just because its vapor and not smoke. Kids and teens don’t need to smoke at all and shouldnt think its now okay to do before they can grasp what theyre actually doing to themselves.

    46. Brastix

      Eddy, I respect you so much for this. You raise awareness for smoking, and made the whole video entertaining, including the ad read even! This is just a damn good video, and you just genuinely seem like a good person. To be a commentary channel that isn’t just constantly bullying people and trying to find the positive is just so amazing to me. Keep up the good work, my friend.

    47. SweptApostle

      I am glad to say that on my own I managed to quit smoking cigarettes and haven't smoked one since October 2020.

    48. Blargus__

      this is a reuploaded filthy frank vid lmao


      I don’t like the idea that adults can’t enjoy flavors that are traditionally considered for kids. Like, I’m 21. I’ve grown up with artificial flavors like Watermelon, Bubblegum, and blue raspberry. Why should I loose access to vape juices with these flavors, just because kids occasionally get ahold of them?

    50. Joseph Davis

      Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't TikTok supposed to SUPPORT cancer?

    51. Mary Johnson

      I actually didn't think vaping could possibly be so addictive until I saw so many kids in my high school doing it, even my brother, and they'd all say the same thing, "I can put it down whenever I want, it's just for fun, I'm totally in control!" Then there parents will find out and take all there vapes and cash and stuff, and I've seen first-hand, teens *begging* my brother to use his, or borrow some cash to buy more. It's absolutely insane how addicted they are after a single month.

    52. I don’t mind pineapple on pizza

      Ever since a few month before a friend got pregnant she stoped smoking and hasn’t started and it has been a year or so.

      1. Garryzento

        i love pineapple on pizza

    53. Noel Charlebois

      what about "the real cost" idk if its only on tv but I remember the commercials and the people would like peel off their skin for cigarettes and stuff hopefully you see this comment because those ads use to scare my ass when I was little

    54. red fang

      Your editing is HMMM exquisite. I mean it's awesome

    55. My Man

      Eddy an add came on that showed two people playing cruel angels thesis with a keyboard and saxhorn it was awesome

      1. Garryzento

        very nice

    56. discreatveus

      A good hit works

    57. Killer Miller

      EDDY! Stop what youre doing, grab up Gus, drive to NY and audition for SNL. That is your path.

    58. Lewis Maddox

      yeah i instinctively grab my vape whenever i see any of those ads. like i dont even realize it anymore. same with most of the other campaigns from other companies too. at least i quit smoking since i started vaping. also not even for my health or anything but vaping and smoking in general is an expensive habit and its really not worth it. take that money and put it towards something cool and youll thank yourself later. i actually did this when i switched to vaping because it was that much cheaper than smoking for me and eventually i had enough to get a really nice watch, and that was worth it for sure

    59. Doug

      I'm one of those guys that the truth ads kinda annoyed, and I've been struggling with nicotine since early high school, and I'm in my early 20s now. I'm lucky enough to not get hit with any health problems (yet). I quit long term about a week ago, and I've been slowing down and taking breaks for the last few months. It kinda sucks to feel as drained and disoriented as I am, but I already feel so much physically stronger, and I feel so much more in control. I love feeling this way, but I'm scared of just slipping back in.

    60. not Ella

      They need to scar children for life if they want their message to work. All the dancing makes it look like a light-hearted issue. The ads of old people with holes in their neck because they can't breathe or the ones with people whose teeth were rotting and falling out scarred me so badly that being around someone smoking scares me

    61. darkeyce02

      Vape companies don't target kids with flavors. Juul the scape goat for truth, has the least appealing flavors. It's literally tobacco flavors. Truth has been in the vape fear campaign for a while. They don't give facts at face value, they exaggerate and try to scare people who other wise could quit smoking using a vape.

    62. Audacity

      There is nothing wrong with vaping.

      1. Superrinus Blick

        It smells bad and it hurts people most importantly the person hat vapes

    63. Noe Ramirez

      They should just scare the shit out of kids, like the older smoking ad campaigns. There was one where a guy in a wheelchair told you not to smoke and it worked like a charm with me. It scared the living hell out of me a kid.

    64. sunchild -

      *hits vape* interesting

    65. GenuinePie

      Thank you, Eddy. This is solid - keep making noise because you have a platform to do so

    66. Bugbears and Wormwood

      I’ve smoked a pack a day since I was 18. That’s $25,000 I could’ve blown on video games, gin or hookers

    67. EnyalatorFlux

      To be fair you have to be stupid and attention craving enough to feel the urge to breathe druggy water through a metal sick to start vaping anyways. Its just natural selection when they get cancer and die.

      1. Superrinus Blick

        not how natural selection works, but vaping is still bad

    68. Andrea Gettling

      The coolest one (im not saying it was the best in terms of effectiveness) was the one where the guy threw a bunch of juuls into cups but the juul would stop before it went into the cup until he threw last one and then they all went into their cups at the same time

    69. Lia H

      Me casually smoking a cigarette while watching this video: 🚬👁👄👁

    70. Maggie

      the worst are the spotify ones

    71. Noa Zaltzman

      This is such a good video!!! i feel like you had a bigger impact on people who think about quitting than those ads

    72. SupraDeluxx

      IDK I think its petty that the "Truth" is going after E-cigs. being up their own asses with statistics they should know that its a better alternative. but not making commercials aint getting grants and tax write offs from the department of health so.......yolo *fortnite dances*

    73. rainisokday

      finally a man for the people

    74. David Crider

      I feel bad for them, they want to help, and have no Idea what they’re doing

    75. Damian9303

      Love how he didn’t make reference to the Pyscho Girlfriend but the “ERMAHGERD” which he pronounced incorrectly.. What does he know about memes lol?

    76. Gavin the Comrade

      I’m only 14 and I would never smoke, even when I’m an adult I wouldn’t, I have asthma

      1. Lia H

        Good! It’s difficult to stop once you start you’ll be doing your body a huge favour

    77. IKEAbirdLivesOn

      Please come back to iFunny!

    78. Gabriel Antos

      To anyone trying to quit l-theanine (a cheap amino acid that's in green tea) helps limit the effect of nicotine somewhat like how suboxone blocks opiates

    79. Luke mccaulley

      This video has made more of a impact than than anti smoking ads have

    80. Pistol Slothely

      Im 30 my dude and smoke a pack anday from 15-23 quit for 2 years then vaped for 2 years then dipped for 2 years. Finally got quit this year. Still crave nicotine all the time. Its hard to describe the feeling of knowing what your doing is pointless and harmful but feeling like your not in control too stop. If dont smoke dont start and if you do smoke know that there are resources that can help you stop.

    81. Perfect Burden

      Meanwhile my school hosted an anti vaping escape room in the gender neutral bathroom a few years back

    82. kiko S

      Thanks for speaking up about this especially for the minorities being targeted

    83. Paige Mahler

      Anyone else Immediately notice the IRvisionrs that were in the commercial at the beginning?

    84. Angel

      this is amazing, thank you for speaking about this. these kids are such easy targets its so sad to see big tobacco exploit them like they have #fuckyoujuul

    85. The Lost Dojo

      I got unsubbed >;(

    86. Alpha Chad

      Dude, I was always afraid of those commercials where those people were paying for cigarettes with their skin and teeth. That sure scared me away from the idea from smoking. And I was always afraid of seeing those burnt pork chop looking lungs... Lean into fear, I guess.

    87. MidwestNerd

      I'm about a year older than you. I started smoking off and on in 2012 and switched to vaping in 2014 as a means to an end. I finally stopped vpaing completely in 2018. Just a few weeks ago I caught COVID and because of all of the damage to my lungs while I was growing up I damn near died. Luckily I'm recovering now but at 24 years old I am regretting that decision I made as a kid

    88. anonymous blanketgirl

      Fun fact: A girl nearly died from vaping. Her name was Simah Herman. I think Truth should give facts that convince others not to vape, like this fact.

    89. Gabriel GSA84 Novich

      Cant we just realize most these kids who does not stop are stupid? Im 14 and never taken any kind of intoxication thingymajing. If you are so stupid you are intentionally permanently damaging yourself, *not EVEN for jokes* its horrifying.

      1. Gabriel GSA84 Novich

        @cheese guy okay sounds cool(in a concerned way)

      2. cheese guy

        Yes, you're right to some degree. The thing is, though, addiction pretty much rewires the brain. Especially in kids who (mostly) all have really high neuroplasticity. Your body truly believes that you NEED it to stay alive, like food or water, even when that's irrational

    90. Evan 3

      The little lungs in A Great Big World ads scared the hell out of me because in every ad the little lungs get impaled or stabbed in some shape or form

      1. Lia H

        Yeah those ones were creepy

    91. Begnsteal

      Your the only one I wait for the ads lol

    92. Hidden Fate

      See, I don’t have Tiktok but every time I see their ads it’s actual facts about smoking/vaping. Which is effective - at the very least more so than this

    93. Ozmataz Groves

      I'm for anti-smoking campaigns and against smoking in general. I vape now and used to smoke a pack a day. I gotta say the flavors aren't for kids. They exist to draw adults into the healthier alternative (and also hobbiest like making and trying new recipes). If you don't believe me; Would you prefer apples or severely burnt toast? Strawberry milkshake or tree bark? Candy or dirt? The flavors are to help people stay off cigarettes by giving them something more enjoyable and less harmful. Dont start either if you currently don't partake, but definitely try to go to vaping if you are on cigs.

    94. Salty Butter

      The best way to get people to stop smokinh isto just show real people with horrible smoking side effects.this one woman's nose was so black and full of tar to the point it was entering her brain, now she just doesnt have a nose anymore

    95. Na2awesome • 2 years ago

      You should see the NHS anti- antibiotics adverts to stop overdosing on medicine

    96. Sun Ryder

      good ol' filthy frank made a video about how cringy this anti smoking ads before. i miss him....

    97. Krash Furst

      I hate to be that guy that defends the's content, but the beat drop magician with the card, he WAS holding a face card...

    98. ThatOneMexiCHUNGUS

      Before: Oh hey, a "talentless hack" just popped into my feed. After: Yeah, just as I thought. Fuckin Keem.

    99. Evan Weaver

      Remember that south park bit with the cringey anti-smoking people? “Remember kids: if you don’t smoke, you could grow up to be just like us!” “Cough cough cough dude smoking is hard, but we gotta keep going.”

    100. DeadlyFredXXX

      Honestly I think the moronic ads are perfectly targeted...
