Big Tobacco apologizes (because they legally have to) in new spoof video

A new video from College Humor and truth® pokes fun at the "Corrective Statements" that the Big Tobacco companies have been legally-mandated to run on primetime TV, in print, and soon, on their websites and cigarette packs. In the video, a tobacco industry executive takes the stage during an open mike night to sing out an apology for tobacco products that he continually reminds his audience is legally required. Aside from lying about their products, the video also emphasizes that it took the tobacco companies 11 years to finally run the statements after the initial 2006 federal ruling.
