The Partnership for a Healthy Mississippi's "Candy Factory"
A Willy Wonka-like character takes kids for a tour of his magical candy factory in this stop-motion animation spot. But it turns out the manufacturing plant instead makes candy-flavored cigarettes. A young girl isn't taken in by the charade. She urges her classmates to "not get tricked into trying" these tobacco products.
