Who Pays for the Cigars?

It wasn’t long before the marketing arms of big businesses around the world saw movies and television shows as a great way to use their products. When you see someone in a movie or television show using a clearly branded product the marketing impact is enormous and so big businesses are prepared to pay big bucks to get their products incorporated into movies.

Seeing the hero in a movie drinking a certain brand of cola or using a certain brand of laptop can increase sales dramatically so companies are prepared to pay … but cigars seem to be the exception to that rule. While I’m sure that some cigar companies have paid to have their products included in a movie it seems that most do not. Why that might be is anyone’s guess.

So there’s just a small look at the subject of cigars in movies. Sadly cigars and cigar smoking aren’t always shown in the best light and the idea that greed and corruption are two of the hallmarks of cigar smokers are suggestions that we could really do without.

But then what is there to link a greedy and corrupt non-smoker to the fact that he or she is a non-smoker? Absolutely nothing that would stand out in a movie and I guess that just goes to show how much of an influencer cigars are on our sub-conscious.

This really made cigars come in to a great light instead of always being criticized for it's harmful effects it has. Cigars are classy and the epitome of the jazz age.
