"CALL FOR PHILLIP MORRRRRIS!" That was a really distinctive ad campaign.

I like the tag line below the model's feet. It implies that our fighting boys deserve a smoke because they may not be alive tomorrow.

How Johnny Roventini became the spokesperson for Philip Morris is an interesting story. His Wikipedia page is worth a look. Here's the link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnny_Roventini

The foot note could easily be repurposed for the next budget. "If you can't get healthcare, remember, our fighting forces come first." "If you can't get a good education, remember, our fighting forces come first." "If you can't get affordable housing, remember, our fighting forces come first." "If you can't get a job, join our fighting forces."
