A friend once told me that if you videotape yourself blowing seven perfect smoke circles and then flicking the butt through them all Marlboro will give you a lifetimes supply of their cigarettes?

Sorry if this has already been discussed, but I was musing this last night. It would be hard to do, but not impossible - so can anyone verify this? Thanks

I would think marlboro would not want people smoking more cigs than once since that would potentially.

a) kill them quicker
b) make a new smoker more inclined to quit.

Besides: what would be the benifit of giving an addictive product away fo rlife on teh basis of such an imossible task. I dont think it would encourage many people now a days..

Well, first of all, Marlboro is not a company, it's one of many brands manufactured by Philip Morris. It seems unlikely such an offer would be specific to one of their brands only, but I guess it's possible.

That being said, I've never heard of anything like this and a bit of googling turned up no references to any similar offers.
