Mock Commercial: Newest Company Offers E-Meth
A mock commercial during a September episode of Saturday Night Live hawks the newest electronic vapor product, E-Meth. The commercial is a direct prod at Blu electronic cigarettes and the e-cig industry in general.

Some members of the electronic cigarette community are not taking very kindly to the joke. Comments have been made that the commercial perpetuates the idea that that nicotine is a dangerous and deadly drug — by comparing it to meth.
It’s not the first time a Saturday Night Live skit made fun of electronic cigarettes. A previous one featured an irritating woman that happened to be an e-cig user.
In our view, this only further gets electronic cigarettes into the minds of American consumers. It seems unlikely that a Saturday Night Live skit focusing mostly on the effects of Meth will alter anyone’s preconceptions about electronic cigarettes.
