The Drag

This colourful short animation traces the insecure protagonist's path to tobacco addiction after he discovers, as a teengaer, that smoking can make him "cool". His addiction follows him well into adulthood, until the scare of lung cancer forces him to face his demons. This funny yet cautionary tale is told by the protagonist as he sits on a psychiatrist's couch, his recollections amusingly illustrated in colourful vignettes of his past. Both entertaining and visually rich, the film is a deterrent against smoking drawn in typical '60s modernist/pop-art style.
