* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic attempts a moment of suave smoking during a parody of Franchise/TheTwilightZone, only to collapse in a coughing fit.
** But subverted and justified in his review of ''Film/DoubleTeam'', where he lights up a cigarillo in celebration of the film's climax. Cigarillos are classed as less harmful than cigarettes, as you don't inhale; you just keep the smoke in your mouth and breathe out.
** ''{{WebVideo/Kickassia}}'' has a scene where as part of WebVideo/BennettTheSage' as Surgeon General's [[InsaneTrollLogic new health campaign]] several of the reviewers try smoke and immediately start coughing. Creator/BradJones' commentary points out that you can tell by the way he holds the cigarette that Creator/PawDugan is the only one who actually smokes in real life.
