The bond between smoking and Hollywood movies has grown with time. Rogue characters smoking a cigar or business proposals in smoke lounges – we can recall at least one movie with such a scene.
With modern media, there is a more conscious depiction of smoking. And we have now progressed to e-cigs.
Also, recent Hollywood movies have contributed to the e-cig fad, especially vapes.
Today, several films have vaping scenes that add to the cosmopolitan charm of the character. This bond between cinema and vaping goes beyond what is on the screen. For instance, a popular vaping company that manufactures the disposable vape, Hyde, claims that a mere product feature can fund the production of a film.
So, read on to know more about the role of vaping in some of the popular movies of our time.
The Role of Vaping Companies in Hollywood
You must have come across actors taking long drags from their vape in a pretty intense situation. Well, it is a common scene nowadays.
Nail-biting scenes make even some of us from the audience grab our vapes, isn’t it?
Both on-screen and off-screen, vaping has a firm grip on Hollywood movies. They present vaping in a spiffy light as a better alternative to smoking. It nudges viewers to try a vape.
Simultaneously, featuring these products in the movie is a way of generating ample funds. This portrayal of vaping in Hollywood movies is a win-win scenario.
The product endorsement acts as an additional source of revenue for the producers and an impactful marketing strategy for various vape companies.
