you gotta move out west, man.  that ad was paid for by some proceeds from 
a tobacco tax, and i saw the sign when i first moved to SF in mid 1997.  
it was on a billboard across from the san jose mercury news ...

there's another one where a suave guy in a tux (smoking a cigarette) 
tells a woman in a cocktail dress, "your scent is intoxicating".  she 
replies, "and yours is carcinogenic."
