  1. i always enjoy the cigarette industry programs you feature. Lorilard ended up in a lawsuit with Harley over those cigerettes, once Lorilard was accused of trying to market them to underage smokers, Harley tried to pull the licensing deal and Lorilard refused, ended up in court and Harley won. BTW Lorilard makes True cigarettes as well.

    Those “jug” handles drove me crazy on NJ roads, I had never encountered those before.

    The real people episode made me wish for a Real People update show, where they could revisit all the old guests and find out what happened later it life. Like interview the guy building the boat and find out what happened later, did he divorce, build it? It would probably a much more sober program.

  2. Yeah apparently Loriland was using some kind of Darth Vader-like character in its advertising that it Harley-Davidson perceived as appealing to children.

    I researched the boat guy and apparently his project was a complete success – he finished the boat, got it to the water, and ran a successful charter business… or something like that…

  3. Cool, thanks Frank. I feel like the test market stuff was suffering from the classic symptom of the participants telling the ad people what they wanted to hear and probably also the ad people selecting the reviews that best matched their goals. I could almost hear some of the people’s inner voices saying, “did I do good?, can I have my free cigarettes now”
