Yes, theyre all pop stars. But, more importantly to the European Commission, they
all Feel free to say no to cigarettes. These non-smoking celebrities are among more
than 15 pop acts who star in anti-smoking advertisements aimed at teenagers. The
Commission-sponsored commercials will air on 38 TV channels, plus some 5,000
cinemas in all member states, and on MTV Europe. The advertisements will vary
across Europe to take account of differing degrees of popularity of the various acts.
The credibility of these non-smoking music stars supports the message Be cool
dont smoke among their audiences, said Health and Consumer Protection
Commissioner David Byrne. It is well-known that eight out of ten people who
smoke start when they are between 12 and 18 years old.
According to a Eurobarometer survey published last month, 37% of EU citizens
aged 15-24 smoke regularly. And the World Health Organization has found that the
number of young smokers is on the rise in all member states.
This will be the second series of commercials produced as part of a wider antitobacco campaign that began on 31 May under the heading a tobacco-free World
Cup and featured well-known footballers. The overall budget of the three-year
campaign is 18 million. The current leg also includes print, radio and billboard
advertising. Byrne said he was pleased to see so many pop stars teaming up with the
EU. In parallel, a Commission proposal to curb tobacco advertising is being
discussed in the European Parliament.
