Jean Dujardin or Happy Joe Lucky: Who Has the Kid-Pleasingest Cigarettes?

This new Funny or Die bit featuring reigning Oscar king Jean Dujardin pushing a fictional brand of cigarettes in the suavest, most charming and youth-enticing way possible is pretty good ("And now in Cotton Candy and Snickers Bar!" I LOL'ed). Still, when it comes to animated/live-action smoke pushers, Dujardin and his partner in crime have pretty formidable competition in the infamous Happy Joe Lucky. Right down to the accordions! Who's got the kid-pleasingest cigarettes around?

Dujardin's video calls for a rummage through the YouTube wilds, where we find the animated Lucky Strike mascot dueting with Your Hit Parade star Gisele MacKenzie. What an era! Smoke if you got 'em! BRB, etc.

    Good, but does it rise to the high water mark of animated tabacco huksterism, the Flintstones touting Winston?

    • S.T. VanAirsdale says:

      Ohhh, yes. That. Perhaps we should establish brackets? Live-action/animated, animated, James Cameron films, etc.

    That's funny. I wonder what a sophisticated french man kills these days? He's not going to artic British Columbia to kill wolves, but does it have to be Jason Bournes? -- What red-haired dweeb could imagine himself ever imitating that? Still, smoking at least will help keep the pudge off; maybe that's good enough.

      Oh, snap! Patrick, this is your best, most concise and wickedly funny thing I've read yet. Awesome.

    Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but this spot starts off w/ Quand on n'a que l'amour by Jacques Brel, right?

    I do want to go on the record that I love this. He's like the French Don Draper. I can get behind this.
