This and similar youtube videos are circulating where all ad revenue will go to an organization to help the cause.

Probably unpopular opinion, generally, but decent amongst my friends: South Park can fuck off with its sudden revival for the COVID pandemic and its plea for people to vote. Matt and Trey are partly responsible for the current crop of manchildren who think trolling and Channer tactics is a valid substitute for giving a fuck about society. They sneered at caring about humanity for twenty-fucking-odd years and they can get fucked.

do you ever think about how my generation was slated to nearly eliminate smoking cigarettes from our lives thanks to robust public health policies and then nicotine vapes came around, totally dismantled the progress, and found a legal advertising loophole?

"The problem with the inception model [of advertising] is that it fuels a hope that we could be immune to ads, if only we were diligent enough or if we developed the right kind of mental fortitude. If only we had a stronger psychological "immune system," ads wouldn't be able to get in — even by the emotional backchannel."
