It’s the highest honor one can attain at the blu Freedom Awards—so now, without further ado, your 2014 Vapey winners!
Will Arnett on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Kimmel jokes about how “insanely ridiculous” vaping will look in eight years—and then promptly asks to try Arnett’s blu for himself, finally saying, “I think I might start.”
Best Celeb blu Vaping Technique
Andrew Dice Clay for his classic behind-the-head drag at the premier of Blue Jasmine. The Dice Man vapeth.
Julia Louis Dreyfus at the 2014 Golden Globes. (*Extra points awarded for simultaneously vaping and refusing to take a selfie with Reese Witherspoon. Top-notch multitasking is always appreciated.)
Funniest blu Name-Check on a TV Series
On the third episode of Season 5 of HBO’s “Girls,” Jessa Johansson (played by Jemima Kirke) says the following: “This is a space cigarette invented by Stephen Dorff. It’s just water vapor and good things like that.”
Noah Wyle for the funnyordie.com “blu-nies” parody. “blu-nies allows me to enjoy my treats without affecting the people around me, because it’s made entirely of vapor, not brownie mix. That means no crumbs, and best of all—no offensive brownie smell.” Ha!
Best blu Use in a Music Video (by an Artist Who’s Had Multiple Animal Names)
Snoop Dogg (aka Snoop Lion) in the “Sitting By the Water” video, part of his Doggisode series of videos. Though the video is number 17 in the series, it’s No. 1 in our hearts (and in the hearts of all of those who love vaping, hot tubs and bikinis).
Leonardo DiCaprio on the set of Django Unchained. Photogs caught Leo getting in a quick vape on the studio lot while working on Quentin Tarantino’s antebellum action flick. It’s an intense movie; we’re sure he needed a moment.
Carrie Fisher (aka Princess Leia) on “Today.” Though she appeared without her classic Star Wars braid buns, we think her blu makes an awesome stand-in light saber.
