Ontario ads compare social smoking to public farting [YouTube Video]

Ontario anti-smoking ads featuring young adults farting up a storm at a party has gone viral.

In its new Quit The Denial campaign, the province's health ministry compares social smoking to social farting.

"Well, it's true that I fart. But I wouldn't call myself a farter. I'm a social farter," says the blonde woman featured in the ads, as the camera pans across a party full of young, hip Ontarians letting 'em rip.

"I really only do it when I hang out with my friends that fart. We hang out. We drink. We dance. Just have some fun being together, farting."

The campaign highlights similarities between social smokers and social farters, noting they both do it to break the ice, and the smell tends to linger.

The video has run on blogs, ad sites and newspapers around the world.

Since then, the province has released videos comparing social smoking to social earwax picking and social nibbling food off other people's plates.

Smokers just don’t get the respect they are due.

Steve Martin made that joke back in the 70’s.

That’s pretty hilarious - a bit reminiscent of the campfire scene in “Blazing Saddles” that cracked me right up.

There was a time in our history not all that long ago where people were free to fart in restaurants, in office buildings, in stores, on airplanes and on public transit, but now the government is imposing farting restrictions.

“Ripping off the old Steve Martin routine.”

An oldie but a goodie. I was just listening to that album the other day.

Most creative demonizing I've heard of since one of the neighborhood children called a younger boy a "stupid poopy head" and made him cry.

This is gonna backfire...no pun intended...and they are in for some serious “Wait! that wasn’t supposed to happen”.

It will become a trend for a couple weeks until it runs its course.

Wear clothespins folks.

Early Western social farters;

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zXygCaEIME

When I was in the Army the guys used to pull the foot lockers around in a circle on the barracks floor on a saturday night after a good mess hall feed of Federal beans, turn the lights out and have a fart lighting contest.

Fart gas is largely methane and sulphur dioxide, which is flamable and burns with a blue flame. The troops would sit there telling crude jokes, zippo in hand, until the spirit moved and they would list over to one side, let it rip and touch it off producing a blue flash, muffled “pop” and commentary from his peers, who acted sort of like the judges on American Idol.

One poor Private ignited his offering a little prematurely and burned a hole through the seat of his fatigue pants as well as most of the hair around his naughty bits.
We found him in the latrine sitting in the gang urinal trying to extinguish himself - he got some second degree burns down under and was the butt of some cruel jokes for a while thereafter.

Farts are obnoxious, but I haven’t read anywhere that they cause cancer, emphysema, heart attack, high blood pressure, etc. like smoking.

Don’t fart till you see the whites of their eyes.

The look on the bearded guy’s face when the girl asks him if he’d like to go outside for a fart...priceless. “I found Miss Right!” lol

Nanny Bloomberg is going to limit the amount of cabbage and baked beans sold to every patron in New Yoke City.

Tobacco companies used to be HEAVY Republican donors.

Wanna bet that if they were heavy DEMOCRAP donors we would all be hearing about the healthy benefits of “bathing your lungs in cleansing smoke”?

As we speak, Mayor Bloomberg is planning to forbid New Yorkers from farting. He’ll approach it logically, like demanding that everybody insert siren whistles every morning, to make enforcement easier for the police.

And the New York Journal News intends to put up an interactive map on their website of all farters in the city.

One difference between cigarettes and farting:

Your partner will probably object less if you light up a cigarette after sex.
