In popular culture
Laramie cigarettes are a popular brand on The Simpsons, despite (or because of) the fact that they have been out of production since the 1950s. The red and white triangular packaging is meant to be a parody of the real-life Marlboro cigarettes. In the show they sponsor a child beauty pageant and have a corporate mascot named Menthol Moose (a parody of Joe Camel) who can be seen at parades in Springfield.
Advertisements for Laramie cigarettes are shown as part of a tobacco lawsuit in The Practice (season one, episode four).
In the 23rd episode of the 2nd season of The X-Files, Laramie Tobacco is mentioned as a missing person's former workplace.
