Various YouTubers participated in Teva Pharmaceuticals’ #Laugh4Lungs Campaign on 18 November.
The campaign was created to raise awareness and to eventually eliminate COPD, also known as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Various British YouTubers, including Lucy Moon, Lewis Parker and Sam King, participated in the event by posting videos about making people laugh.

COPD occurs when your lungs have been exposed to something harmful for a long enough period of time as to cause permanent damage, and is usually caused by smoking, exposure to air pollution or by inhaling dust or fumes at work. COPD is long term and results in the narrowing of your lungs’ airways, obstructing the passage of air and making it difficult to breathe.
To help raise awareness, Luzy decided to make her sister – and the rest of the internet – laugh by sharing some of their funniest baby photos.
Lewis, however, took his video in a different direction by choosing to make his flatmate laugh in a duel.
Those wishing to learn more about COPD or to donate to the cause can do so by visiting the I Can Live With COPD website.
