What ever happened to the funny film and video short? We were delighted to find that it's still around, this time in the form of a viral video commercial for Blu electronic cigarettes.
What, you never heard of electronic cigarettes? We didn't until today. Last summer, the makers of Blu e-cigs launched a contest for the best viral video commercial. While this one didn't win the top prize, we thought it was the funniest.
In this short film, two groups of old grumpy Jewish men are sitting at tables in a New York deli, playing cards and arguing about sports, when a young man walks in and takes out an electronic cigarette. What happens next is a comic gem.
