Hunter S. Thompson Look-Alike Contest

About the Contest


Every year TarGard hosts a Hunter S. Thompson Look-Alike contest in his honor. He was one of our most loyal customers and an advocate of TarGard cigarette filters. He truly understood why TarGard isn't simply a cigarette holder, and he was never short on words when it came to why he continued to use TarGard.

2012 marked the fourth time we've sponsored and held our Hunter S. Thompson Look-Alike Contest. It's something we look forward to every year. It's always fun for us to the real Hunter S. Thompson fans come out and show everyone the wild costumes they come up with. We would like to thank everyone who has participated in the contests.
