5 Funniest Parodies About E-Cigarettes
The media loves to talk about electronic cigarettes and while a lot of the reports center on controversy, there are occasionally some funny stories in the mix. We have compiled a list of our favorite hilarious e-cig stories that gave us a good laugh. We hope you will enjoy them too!
1. Vapers Could Be Futuristic Bounty Hunters
The Onion ran a funny article in November 2013, poking fun at a tough looking Atlanta-man caught vaping. The article speculated that he must be some kind of futuristic bounty hunter on a critical mission. Locals described the man’s potential identity in a variety of colorful ways.
Resident Jeff Wallace speculated that the stranger using the e-cig must possess some kind of superhuman physical and mental capabilities. “I feel like at any minute that guy might jump from his seat, charge across the bar, and waste a future war criminal with some sort of pulse rifle, particle cannon, or X294-phaser blaster,” he said.
2. Forget E-Cigs… Try E-Meth!
Saturday Night Live did a hilarious video about “E-Meth”, an electronic cigarette style meth delivery device. It featured a series of testimonials by people praising the benefits of E-Meth. One lady demonstrated using the device, saying, “Mama can smoke that chunky white crunch anywhere… at the office, at the grocery store, in a bathtub in the middle of the road, or facedown in a big old tire.” Another E-Meth fan proclaimed, “I can ride the ice pony anywhere I want.” The short video was a tongue-in-cheek dig on Blu eCigs, even ending the video by saying, “Relax! It’s Blu!” Well played, Saturday Night Live. You gave us quite the laugh with this one!
3. E-Cigarettes According to Charlie Murphy
In an epic video clip, Charlie Murphy and his buddy Freez talk about electronic cigarettes. As they sit in chairs puffing away on e-cigs, the video cuts to reports about exploding e-cigarettes. The two keep on puffing and mock the news clip for claiming that no one knows which brand exploded. Freez assures the viewer that if his e-cig explodes, everyone would know which brand it was. They cut to picture of a starter kit labeled “E-Cigs With Vitamin C by Darkness”. As Murphy and Freez keep chatting about how e-cigs are the wave of the future, Murphy takes a puff and BAM! All you see is blood splattered everywhere. This video is a funny spin on the crazy news stories about exploding e-cigs.
4. The Look at ME-Cigarette
Forget your old e-cig and try to Look at ME-Cigarette instead. This funny video puts a funny spin on vapers and their sometimes not-so-discreet vaping habits. The invented Look at ME-Cig features flashing strobe lights on the tip and colored vapers. It even comes with a micro speaker to play your favorite “douche classics”. When you vape, the mist will display your IMBD credits, twitter numbers, or photos of you in your urban garden.
5. The Legal Vape 4000
The last video is a tongue-in-cheek look at the e-cig industry and the battle against local bans and federal regulations. The new “Legal Vape 4000” uses a generator for power to avoid dangerous e-cig battery explosions. It delivers 4000 watts of “pure vaping power” and the e-cig tank holds a full liter of e-liquid. This fictitious infomercial will give you a few laughs, but it also highlights just how ridiculous legislators can be. Enjoy!
