Yeah, I think the ads are still against the rules.

I'm wondering if they are just skirting the rules because it's not actual advertisement. They say the name "Macanudo" all the time during the show, but as I'm sitting here thinking about it, I can't remember ever hearing them say "cigars." And they don't ever actually show commercials for it. Which would be really really wrong, because, you know, we can't have advertisements for harmful drugs on TV ... unless, of course, they're made by a giant pharmaceutical company.
