That’s right, both Katherine Heigl AND David Letterman smoked a tobacco free cigarette on CBS’s The Late Show with David Letterman.
Video credit goes to CBS.
Fasten your seat belt, play the video and check out their reactions:
After Katherine took a drag off her 2-pice e-cig she offered it to David Letterman. He graciously accepted and hesitated in taking the first drag made a face at the camera exhaling the vapor, then he took a second drag and attempted to blow a few smoke rings! Incredible
It is almost surreal blogging about it as I think back. Electronic cigarettes were sold at Target & BJ’s at one time (now pulled), sold at Pilot gas stations, featured on The Doctor’s TV Show twice and now they are sold at 7-11 and featured on The Late Show where Letterman himself gives it a shot!
I am grateful for the publicity and want to say THANK YOU to David Letterman and Katherine Heigl.
With all the controversy and publicity will President Obama finally grows a pair and asserts a position on electronic cigarettes? They were brought to his attention at a press conference years ago and he declined to comment.
We may never know if Letterman or Heigl intended on combating some of the negative press related to electronic cigarettes after the FDA sent out warning letters.
It is almost clear however, that the FDA’s timing in sending the warning letters was tied to the litigation pending against the FDA in a federal court for the FDA’s attempt to detain imports of the devices since they brought up the letters that they sent during the oral arguments for the case.
When the news, facts and opinions on electronic cigarettes get as distorted and muddled as they have on the internet there a couple questions I would like to answer in the coming months: Which will get more press and who will people tend to listen to? The FDA or celebrities like Katherine Heigl and David Letterman on The Late Show?
