So, these clubs are to adults what theme parks are to kids (sorta) - get your picture with a mascot, make a craaaazy music vidya tape, and goofy contests. Just throw in terrible white rapping and cancer!

Pump up the sham, pump it up
breathe those cancer lumps in
and your heart stops pumpin'
look ahead, the crowd is slumpin'

Ravenhallow: sort of, except Joe Camel was designed almost entirely to appeal to kids.

-I guess this is a way to sink a nightlub? Is that the idea? "Smooth Moves" lick smooth balls
-White people only?
-Wikipedia has no entry for this!
-I love it when they show the cassette in the video!
-when narrator talks about giving away cigarettes, he speeds up like he's trying to slip one past, and finally...
-if you would like a special "Extended Terrible Cut", i found this while doing some Googling:

Mmmm. Tar and chemicals. I want a Polaroid of that night.

Also, that White dude couldn't rap his way out of a wet paper bag.

I'm still not entirely sure what they're selling. Is it a rent-a-party, like my local music video station used to tour high schools with in the 80s? Or once you join the Camel Club Network, do you sign over in perpetuity and every night is the cover band, the MC and the guy sweating in the Joe Camel head?

What's up with that cigarette glory hole?

I've rarely been this sad and relieved at the same time that the nineties are dead.

I used to work for the Camel Club Program! I worked for the Marlboro program too. It was my job to sell the program to nightclub owners. I would have used a video like this on the job to showcase the program to potential clients. This particular video was about from about 12 years before time though. Ah... inhale the memories!

So I didn't notice anyone else mentioning this, but the guy who comes in at :22 seconds in, "I came for the Music it's totally rockin'", he looks like Tim Heidecker's Spagett character. Same fat round pudgy face, cept he's not wearing red...

The likeness is uncanny.

Twenty years later, how many bars and nightclubs in this country have a "no smoking" policy?
