E-Lites once again broke new ground this week after proudly featuring in a new music video. The UK’s biggest electronic cigarette brand appears in the video for the new Lily Allen track, “Hard Out Here”.
The video, which was released online via Twitter on Wednesday, takes a satirical look at contemporary music videos, and received over a million views on its first day online. Lily Allen is a household name, having scored two multi-platinum albums and countless hit singles around the world.
E-Lites were the first electronic cigarette company to air a TV advert, then the first to enter major sport sponsorship and now once again lead the way by stepping into new realms. This music video appearance for E-Lites caps off a significant year of growth for the brand, having enjoyed success with the British Superbikes season, and teamed up with Celtic, Rangers and Derby County football clubs, Worcester Warriors Rugby, and are official partners of The O2 arena in London.
Trevor Field, Sales & Marketing Director said, “We’re very proud to be part of a video of a major global artist like Lily.”
“E-Lites take our responsibilities as market leader seriously. We want adult smokers to get clear messages about the benefits of switching to E-Lites and by appearing in this video, we can showcase our product and its significant advantages, such as the ability to smoke indoors without affecting others, as there’s no smell or passive smoking.”
“Smokers are switching to e-cigarettes at an accelerating rate with official figures showing more than 10 times as many smokers are using e-cigarettes to quit cigarettes than a year ago. There is an e-cigarette revolution underway, and being part of a major music video helps to demonstrate that.”
