Is cancer funny? Generally speaking, the answer is an unequivocal “no.” however, decided to go there, with a new fake ad spoofing the extreme anti-smoking commercials designed to scare people straight with graphic visions of what can happen to their bodies if they continue to light up. Does it cross a line? I guess it depends on how you feel about those gnarly anti-smoking ads in the first place. I feel like once College Humor’s spot quickly pushes past throat cancer into the realm of Terminator-style killer androids (I can’t explain; you’ll have to watch) it dodges any true controversy. But watch it and tell us what you think. And make sure you stick around for the final tag line.
