Who smokes brands?

Tobacco brands keep showing up in mainstream Hollywood movies, despite a US legal agreement barring paid product placement by the tobacco companies that benefit from global brand promotion in entertainment media. Once a brand is in a movie, it appears on multiple media platforms for decades. If no actor is listed, the tobacco brand was advertised somewhere else in a scene.
