I recently purchased an e-cigarette for my boyfriend for his birthday. He has never smoked before and the only reason he wanted one was because he tried his friend's and it tasted really good. I got him the e-cigarette and a couple of tasty juices that contained zero nicotine. We got them all in the mail and we both tried it together and it wasn't too bad and now I've even started liking it. I find it helps me with binge eating. I have a habit of wanting to eat when I'm on the computer, and I'm on the computer all the time. So I use it to do something with my hands and mouth instead of eating. As an e-cigarette smoker when I see this commercial it doesn't really bother me much. I hate the fact that it's telling me to go onto this website to learn more instead of just telling me on the commercial itself. To me this makes me feel like they just want website views or that it's like a click-bait commercial and I really don't want to visit this website. Maybe if they commercial said the things instead of telling me to go the website I might care about it more.

Let me start off by saying that the guy at the end of the commercial took a monster drag off of that e-cig. Very cool imagery. As a student in college I began seeing these things on campus in the fall of 2013. There was no policy on the smoking of e-cigs in class so the first users would just puff away in class. The argument "Its just water vapor" or something like that was issued whenever the professors would tell the students not to smoke in their class. Today its an epidemic, these things are everywhere on campus. And my campus is a 'smoke free' campus, you never see anyone smoking cigarettes on campus. But yet e-cigs are are allowed. There is policy banning them from the classroom, but I'd say that 1 in 20 students will be puffing on one of these while walking to their next class.
In reference to the commercial itself, it seemed like it didn't have anything to say. The message was 'beware of potential dangers of e-cigs' but there was nothing to explain why. Except maybe to say that anything related to Big Tobacco is the worst thing ever. California has enough financial problems as it is, they shouldn't be spending money on weightless commercials like this.
