A lot of us here at V2 love TV almost as much as we love our e cigs. In 2014, we got to witness our beloved e cigs rise to mainstream popularity and join many of our favorite celebs on the small screen. From the Golden Globes, when an e cig starred in on-camera celebrity antics, to a vapor-filled scene on the Simpsons, to late-night comedy, we couldn’t help noticing these big moments. Here’s a recap of our favorites.
The Golden Globes.
Take your pick of celebrities seen vaping while taking in the show (Leonardo DiCaprio? Sienna Miller?). How could we not love Julia Louis-Dreyfuss puffing on an e cig while pretending to be too cool to sit with other celebrities (and denying Reese Witherspoon a selfie) as part of the show’s comical camera cutaways.
Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Our humble e cigs warranted a nearly two-minute riff on this late night show, with the host starting out complaining that it doesn’t burn, then launching into a promotion for a fictional “iPhone E” – a phone you can smoke! Now we haven’t figured out how to combine a vaporizer with a phone yet, but have something that can get you close: our new V2 iPhone Case keeps your e cigs, iPhone, and credit cards secure and on-hand.
House of Cards.
Attempting to ditch tobacco and appear more “vice presidential,” Kevin Spacey’s character puffs on e cigs in this late night scene in his living room. When he’s accused of cheating with the smokes, Spacey tells his wife: “No, I’m not, it’s vapor. You should try it.” We think so too, Claire! And for a stylish woman like you, we recommend something from our Vapor Couture line…
Chain-smoking Patty and Selma try e cigs, but – in classic Simpsons-style humor – lament the fact that they’re so clean compared to regular cigarettes. Only the Simpsons could add smoking humor to an episode about fracking.
