Has anyone else heard of this ridiculousness? I mean, yeah, I smoke, and yes, I live in Williamsburg... And yet, I am not impressed.

I remember a few years back that band forked Up sued Camel and Rolling Stone for using them in a Camel ad without their permission...they were trying to like sneakily insinuate that all these bands were down with Camel and thought they just wouldn't notice or wouldn't care I guess?

I think it hits the nail on the head and I'm pretty sure it's going to succeed.

I just want to hear what the owners of all of those bodegas say when they open their shipments from camel and see "WILLIAMSBURG" on the packs. I think there will be a collective eye roll.

oddly enough, reading that gave me a flashback to staying at my sister's place in Greenpoint and walking down a pedestrians-only Bedford Ave this summer after the craft fair in McCarren Park. sigh :(

are you mentioning you live in bushwick becuase if any of these dumb cigarette companies knew anything then they would know that bushwick cigarettes are where it's really at?

haha, no I just mentioned it because brooklyn is pretty big but bushwick borders on williamsburg, i.e. personal experience with the area they are modeled after.

Me too! I hate how I feel smoking, but it's really difficult to quit.

I'm a non smoker and I do not live in Williamsburg, but I think this is pretty funny. They should make a series and use all of the hipster neighborhoods of major cities. Up next, San Francisco's Mission district!
