Even the Marlboro man was not immune to the effects of cigarette smoking. Two actors who portrayed as ‘Marlboro Man’ died of lung cancer, a disease caused by cigarette smoking. The first Marlboro man Wayne McClaren appeared in the cigarette advertisement in the year 1976 and died of lung cancer in 1992. He lived for many years after being diagnosed lung cancer and promoted smoking-cessation campaigns. The second Marlboro man was David McClean who died of lung cancer in the year 1995. His family filed a suit against Phillip Morris, mentioning that David McClean had to smoke sometimes five packs of cigarettes a day, to complete commercial filming and print ad shoots for Marlboro cigarette.
