It’s powerful stuff: Children walk up to smoking adults and ask them for a light. The adults, cigarettes in hand, start explaining why smoking is bad. It’s poignant and heartbreaking and touching and sentimental and emotionally triggering and everything an anti-smoking PSA should be.

But for nonsmokers or new smokers or on-the-cusp addicts, it’s a nice reminder why you choose to save $10 a day and keep your lungs clean.
