          In March, 2001 Target Market aired a television commercial directed at Minnesota youth.  The objective was to make young adults aware of the profound impact tobacco-industry advertisements have on them to promote the life-changing habits of tobacco use.  Whether the use of tobacco provides an aura of cool, hip, or grown-up, the result is the same: bad breath, smelly clothes, reduced lung-capacity, and an addiction that masquerades as “I'm cool.  I can quit anytime.”  Lies!

The photographs below were taken during the filming of the commercial on a cold, crisp winter's day (January 17, 2001) on a farm west of Stillwater (MN).
