Someone Re-Cut Ray Liotta’s Chantix Commercial with Scenes from 'Goodfellas' and It’s Pretty Awesome
For fans of Goodfellas and/or medications which help you quit smoking, this is the mash-up for you!
Much like his character Henry Hill in Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas (1990), Ray Liotta has gone from the heights of success and fame to your regular average nobody struggling to quit smoking.
As far as film mashups go, this is perhaps one of the most simple and most awesome to ever exist. It might even top this classic Adventure Time and Mad Max mashup from a few years ago. Or perhaps every film and video clip of Christopher Walken dancing. You be the judge!

While it’s fun to riff on Liotta and his career now (which isn’t that bad really, I mean the man consistently works!). It’s hard not to feel nostalgic about Goodfellas and its cinematic legacy. Here’s what Goodfellas can teach us about screenwriting and how Scorsese uses music to tell a story.
