    Fuck Bic and their single use crap.

    They literally do only single use Lighters and Pens, nothing else.

    Fuck this company.

    Snoop Dogg’s use for the lighter is already covered by “and more” before it gets to Willie Nelson. What is the “so much more” he’s doing with a lighter that doesn’t involve grills, candles, or smoking?

      Willie Nelson is known for using his for an extended quantity. Which is where the joke is, here. Snoop is known for smoking weed, and Willie Nelson is known for smoking a substantial quantity for longer than Snoop has been alive. For comparison, Snoop is 52. Willie is 90.

      I hope this helped.

        I wanted to comment that I’ve recently read that he stopped smoking, Upon further investigation this turned out to be an ad for smokeless fire pits.

        I was going to say I think there was a smoking contest between them… But it was Ricky from trailer park boys vs Cheech (or Chong? For some reason I can’t remember right now.)

      Due to the overall length it doubles as a guitar slide.

      Also he likes to collect them. So, much more.

      Probably to generate discussion about what the “and more” could be, just like it’s doing. Proper ad camp, Bic.

    I understand what they’re insinuating but won’t any regular lighter work for that purpose? What’s so special about this design?

      For when part of the herb that’s loaded in your pipe doesn’t get ignited by capillary action and you need to put the flame directly to it to get it to ignite. Since you’re trying to manipulate the position of the flame it’s easier for your fingers to get in the way. It’s more of an edge case and you can just get better at using a normal lighter, so I’d say this is just for viral marketing if it’s real

      edit: and djeep lighters are better for this anyway

      When the herb in the bowl is deep, gotta get the flame deeper, so either get gud, or burny fingy.

      Like, people have been using regular lighters for this for forever, so it’s not a necessity, just easier.

      its a type of pipe lighter.

      To light a pipe, you need to get the flame down in the bowl.
      its kinda tricky to that with a normal lighter without burning your thumb.

      so over the years specialized pipe lighters emerged, that help you reach into the bowl.

      the implication in the ad is, that the most popular pipes these days are not for tobacco consumption.

      This lighter has a stem to keep the flame from your thumb, but it isn’t obnoxiously long.

      I’ll note the Bic brand is not refillable. Look for a little port on the bottom. I’ve seen some at Ace hardware.

      When you torch from the top, you can burn your fingers with the regular lighter.

    And so much more: Like burning away the hair growing out of your ears without also burning your fingers!

    I like clipper better, same thing but refillable. They have the same style with the metal extension piece. Bic goes in the garbage once it runs out.

    Chillie Nelson, ma bro!

    Btw yesterday I learned who designed the ubiquitous bic lighter: Louis Lucien Lepoix, a guy who pretty much shaped the aesthetic zeitgeist of the early cold war. The more you know…
