An animated series from Foundation Cigars. This animated series will celebrate Foundation’s most unique brand, The Upsetters, through vibrant and artistic shorts. The series is called ‘The Good, The Bad, and The Upsetters’. 

The story

The story follows our main character, The Upsetter, being pursued by the powers that be as they try to prevent him from growing his tobacco and selling Foundation Cigars. The shady, gun-slinging antagonist embodies the FDA and other groups that seek to persecute cigar manufacturers and retailers.

The Good, The Bad, and The Upsetters’ pays respect to the legacy of old spaghetti westerns. And to the 1972 film, “The Harder They Come.” This Jamaican cult classic is famous for its reggae soundtrack and bringing Jamaican culture to international audiences. ‘The Upsetters’ series seeks to share the cigar brand’s own Jamaican heritage that makes it one-of-a-kind. Fans of reggae will also notice subtle nods to some of the genre’s most influential artists.

Jamaica and tobacco

Premium cigar tobacco isn’t new in Jamaica. The culture of the island with tobacco is long. It even rivals Cuba. Foundation Cigar Company created The Upsetters. The Upsetters represent the next level in the evolution of the infused-cigar smoking segment. For that, Nick Melillo uses a unique Jamaican cow tongue leaf. The Upsetters fillers evenly pair this rare and ancient tobacco with great Nicaraguan tobacco.

The Upsetter line is utilizing a thousand years old tradition. The Upsetters’ flavor and profile further benefits from a carefully measured technique known as “Caribbean atmospheric herbal fusion.” This creates uniquely infused cigars that according to Foundation, appeals to both the experiential and adventurous smoker and traditional smokers.
