We’re Normal People That Vape!

Vapers get a bad rap. The mediaย has made us out as hipsters, delinquents, “bros,” and much worse, for no good reason. This innovation has been quarantined as a public health menace, used by a cultish legion of hooligans hell-bent on getting your children hooked on nicotine. We’ve made a delightful little video to illustrate that we’re just normal people that vape!

I see no difference between the people who ย vape and the people who do not. The people who have chosen to vape are simply doing so as an alternative to cigarettes. We’re not lame, stupid, or fedora-wearing mouth-breathers, we’re normal people that vape.

When I was growing up my mom was constantly reminding me “If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it at all.” To everyone that doesn’t vape and has something to say, I would take those words to heart. We are normal people just like you but made the decision to give up smoking. The marketing team and I decided to make a video that tries to capture that we are normal people that do our daily routines, but vape! I hope that you enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

    couldn’t agree more!!

  • Steve Betts says:

    I’ve been smoking for 30 odd years and have struggled with giving them up, until I found out about vaping. It was so easy to transition over from smokes to vape and I have no desire for smokes what so ever. I must thank you sincerely.

  • Lyle says:

    Very nice! Vape on!

  • Paul says:

    After 2 months of being smoke free I can say I feel much better. I have no desire for a cigarette and for that I am grateful. Thank you.


    I applaud the effort.I began vaping to stop smoking at end of 2010.I’m a grey haired middle age woman who uses a mini battery.I don’t puff huge clouds.More people should have been represented here.I’m a mother of 3 now adult children and have two grandkids.Vaping Saved me from lung cancer so far.I’m so very grateful it came about.(Vaping)I’m glad others life will be spared.Honestly though I can help to have liked it better when it was less know by general public.

  • Mobea says:

    I:M sorry, but this video does not depict normal vapors. I would never blow vapor into someones face nor try to show how cool it looks to blow a bunch of vapors out of windows. I have been vaping for six years but I would never have myself or my friends make a video that shows that we are “normal” like this. Although I do love the song!

    • Tim Mechling says:

      Mobea, we understand your concerns. The people featured in this video spend 99% of their vaping time working at a computer, and we didn’t think that would be very interesting as a video. Thanks for your input, and maybe we’ll make a brutally realistic vaping video in the future.

  • Audrey says:

    I’d rather smell like your e-juice than cigarette smoke! Vape on I say!

  • Erica Cross says:

    Thank you for finally making me feel normal. I started smoking when I was only 10. I’m turning the big 50 this year and I’m happy to say vaping was the only way I’ve stopped. I’m cigarette free for almost 4 years and it only took a week of vaping to put the Newports down forever. I purchase all my juice from MB. The flavors and price can’t be beat. I love you guys. I only recommend MB when anyone asks for a place to buy vaping products. Oh and the app is awesome!!! Thanks for being so wonderful.

    • Tim Mechling says:

      Thanks for all your wonderful support, Erica! With time, vaping will lose its weird stigma. To me, vaping is such a casual part of my day. I forget that some people are weirded out by the act.

      You’re a wonderful customer, and I hope you keep riding that MBV train!

  • Autumn says:

    Loved reading the comments on this about people stopping smoking! I too am in the process. Keep up the good work MBV:-)

  • TAMMY MURPHY says:

    I’m not so sure about the song, but I absolutely love the video.

  • Amber says:

    Next month I will have 5 years away from cigarettes Thanks to Vaping! It was a smooth transition and if it wasn’t for Vaping I would still be smoking today. I am so happy to be cigarette free. Thank you for standing up for us!!!

    • Josh Hanna says:

      Awesome! Keep it up! We try to stand up for our customers and the big companies in the industry need to lead the way.

  • Brennen says:

    Im just happy this comment gives me some points ๐Ÿ™‚

  • partho says:

    Totally agree.

  • Rob A says:

    It blows my mind about how the anti-vape people think that the industry is aiming at getting non-smokers to vaping. I’ve gone from smoking a pack a day to zero in less than a week. I’ve been doing this for about two years now and I haven’t looked back. Personally, I can’t stand the smell of cigarette smoke anymore and that’s sweet music to my non-smoking wife’s ears. Sure it sounds like I’m speaking Chinese to her whenever I’m talking about what supplies I need or when I’m talking to my other vaping friends, but not smelling like smoke around my family is well worth it. I just haven’t been able to convert my Father to vaping yet, but I’m sure with the right setup and juice flavors, I’ll get him to quit like myself.

  • Mark B says:

    I am another convert to vaping…its been 7 months and I havn’t even wanted a cigarette. Vaping has allowed me to break the bondage of 30+ years of smoking Camels. I feel better, smell better, and I no longer have to worry about being looked down on for being a “smoker”. LOVE the flavors offered and LOVE the price…keep up the good work!
