This is a great parody of all the commercials. I love how they present everything with smooth and decent pace, in the end at a very fast pace, they say that it has side effects :)

Might have been what I had with the coffee... Porridge... After that my stomach started hurting and was being sick everywhere... No videos from me for the time being :(

May I ask where you're getting these names and avatars Spatry?  Also, this is what happens when I'm inactive for a day?  :P

I created Ivan and Dirty Helga. First I drew them by hand. Then I scanned them into my computer so I could trace them in Flash for animation purposes. I kept the source for all of my cartoon/videos in case I ever wanted to use those characters again!

That's quite a nifty thing you're doing Spatry.  Do you have any other art you would mind showing us sometime later?

I have other characters I can use for animations. Maybe I will make something new one day.

I am a chain smoker before. But I quit pretty early. Because I become a vegetarian. But I can't stop the erg to drink coffee. Coffee is my only way to escape from alcohol addiction. If you are able to stop being alcoholic, chances are your next thing is coffee and caffeine addiction.

I didn't need to go to those extremes. I switched to an E-cig and that did the trick.

Can't quit smoking, I tried so many thing and nothing worked for me. I'm not the kind of smoker that turns 2 packs of ciggs to dust for a day but still I'm so addicted, I smoke 7 ciggs a day, no more but no less and still the coffee is not the same without the smoke :D

That's hysterical!  

Could you please share a bit about the music?  Did you sequence that yourself?  If so, did you use an external MIDI keyboard?  What program was it?  Do you have a tutorial posted somewhere?

That video clip was made almost 10 years ago, long before I transitioned to Linux. The background music was made from a public domain midi file converted to wav. The video was also made in Macromedia Flash. Since Flash is not native to Linux, I do not have a tutorial on composing works with that software.

I clicked this thread thinking there was a fellow cigar enthusiast on here (I'm pretty sure there is somewhere).  I'm not disappointed with the content of this thread, but had hoped to see a big, fat stogie being smoked. ;)

[..] to see a big, fat stogie being smoked. ;)

Ugh, would that be a "cigar", as in: Bone Thugs-N-Harmony - Budsmokers Only (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipjGYpr5cA0)?..;) :)

Edit: Whoa (?!), the forum has auto-inserted teh YouTube video! o.0

I gave up smoking years ago, but then I started again in 2003, this time it was cigar addiction, specifically Old Port rum soaked cigars.

I managed to give up cigars, but my next addiction was chocolate. Anything that contains chocolate I would eat non-stop. I am now overweight.

Drinking too much coffee upsets my stomach, so that was never a viable alternative to smoking.

Now and then I get the hankering for a cigarette, but they are so expensive here in the UK with tax and VAT (and rightly so), that I've been put off taking up smoking again due to financial restraints.

But chocolate biscuits are reasonably cheap.......

I used to have an addiction to cigars back when I was in the Navy. One of my friends introduced me to the Gurkha brand and they were awesome. One of the best ways to relax when you are out to see and no land in sight. Alcohol was obviously not allowed. However, they would host a steel-beach picnic with a movie and a couple of vouchers for a can of beer after 45 days straight of being out at sea. Those were good times. Glad to have done it, but glad that's it's over. Definitely a life changing experience.

I took on smoking cigarettes later since I couldn't really afford the Gurkha's on a civilian wage (at least not when I came home). I've almost, for the most part dropped the habit. It's to the point where I can go fairly long periods of them without one and not feel like I need it, but sometimes will socially smoke with my wife (we're both not regulars) after a stressful week.

I could always go for some coffee with a side of milk chocolate. Good stuff. Also, why I am a tad on the overweight side myself lol.

I switched to E-cigarettes February 1, 2012 and became a non-smoker that way. After about a year and a half of vaping I quit that cold turkey... E-Cigarettes is the miracle which enabled me to quit smoking! I kept cutting the amount of nicotine in the vape juice until one day I decided I did not need to do it anymore!
Sorry I have not posted much lately, I am working a new job and it is draining a lot out of me.... I am still around though and I have not forgotten you guys!

Good to hear from you again Spatry!

I've never been tempted to try vaping, it looks so cumbersome and unappealing. Part of the pleasure for me when I smoked was the act of taking a cigarette from the packet, getting my Zip lighter and 'lighting up'. I got an even more relaxing sensation when I rolled my own cigarettes. Of course the main pleasure was the taste and smell of the tobacco itself.

Putting those vaping machines to my mouth and inhaling heated phials of scented chemicals is not for me.  I would prefer the more deadly chemicals contained in tobacco. :)

Thank God I gave up smoking.

Essentially, the vape is a flavored glycerine food grade product, what you are taking into your lungs is water vapor which is much safer than the tars and carcinogens in cigarettes. Some countries consider people who vape as non-smokers.
