IÃ¢â¬â¢m the kind of guy that is quick to point out a scam. I am the same way when it comes to deceptive marketing. If I see a commercial advertising a free toaster with credit application, IÃ¢â¬â¢m throwing a flag.
When I saw the commercial by Phillip Morris promoting their website designed to help people quit smoking, I was skeptical. I knew there were deals cut with the tobacco settlement years ago, but I figured you would go to the website, and get bombarded with cigarette coupons and other ads. However, I was surprised when I went to www.phillipmorrisusa.com and found nothing like I expected. I didnÃ¢â¬â¢t spend too much time on the site, but while I was there I did not notice any subliminal ads.
So, with that, I must apologize to the Marlboro man for assuming he had tried to rope people back into the habit that he so ruthlessly helped start.
