A Non-Smoker's V-Chip?

I wish there were some way I could explain to my T.V. that I'm not a smoker because I'm getting pretty tired of the escalating grossness of anti-smoking ads.

The most recent offender is an ad in which they snake a video camera down into the lungs of someone with lung cancer, giving us the viewer an up close and personal look at the patient's tumors.

Thanks. I'm trying to enjoy a football game with my friends and now I'm about to hurl into the spinach and avocado dip.

But I'm not, and never have been, a smoker, and I'd like to not put up with this public service overkill. So I'm going to invent a non-smoker's V-chip I can install in my T.V. so when these ads come on I'll get instead ads for Doritos, or beer, or something else that can kill me legally.

Make this and I'll buy one. The ones that get me the most annoyed are the 'Truth' commercials, with a bunch of too-eager kids. While I've never smoked and never had any real desire too, I sort of want to start (in a cut-off-your-nose-to-spite-your-face-kinda-way, as my mom would say) in retaliation.

Make that any real desire 'to'.
