Don't have a fog machine? Music video makers smoke cigarettes for their effects

A hilarious behind-the-scenes clip for a low budget music video in east India showed how the term 'smoke and mirrors' is sometimes very literal when you don't have a fog machine.

The video, filmed on May 29 in Aizawl, Mizoram state, shows the cameramen blowing cigarette smoke over the lens to give a smoky mystique to the female artist they were filming.

The artists were recording for an album in the local Mizo language and didn't have the budget for a smoke machine, prompting them to come up with this stop-gap solution.
