Just in from hate group leader Monica Cole:
Truth Initiative anti-smoking commercials are always graphic and over the top. Their latest has crossed the line! It displays a man singing to the tune of ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star’ but instead it’s ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, Little DICK!’ The commercial is being aired on Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network at times when children are likely watching.
The ad goes into details associated with erectile dysfunction for our children to see. It’s highly offensive and inappropriate. Children as young as 3 are singing a seemingly harmless nursery rhyme that has now been perverted and twisted. Is nothing sacred anymore?
We demand this commercial be taken down for our children’s innocence and well-being! Please if you are as passionate about removing this offensive commercial as I am, please SHARE with your family and friends.
TAKE ACTION: If you agree this commercial is inappropriate, please use the contact information we have provided on our website to contact Truth Initiative asking them to pull this ad immediately.
Launched in 1998, the Truth campaign has been lauded by multiple federal agencies including the CDC for its role in the nose-diving teen smoking rate, which over 20 years has plummeted from 23% to 6%. Truth has won numerous public service awards from the advertising industry.
