The success of "Brokeback Mountain" has caused a problem for a certain cigarette manufacturer.
How can their adverts be taken seriously if they are shown next to this film?
The Marlboro man is typically shown as a big tough trailhand, a real man's man. Showing this advert next to a film where two cowboys put a whole new meaning to "a man's man" is bound to cause comparisons.
Expect to see a special "Brokeback Mountain" version of this advertisement where you can see two cowhands going into a hot manu-á-manu open-mouthed clinch behind the pack shot.
You know what I mean....
