Heh, I was thinking they`d have put the "Cartoon Allstars" up there...it was a full length cartoon, and it featured most of the popular cartoon characters from the 80s. (What could be so bad about that?!) It was horribly written, and it was just a long PSA aimed at the horrors of smoking pot.

I always liked the PSA spoof where Johnny Depp says does the whole `This is your brain on drugs. Any Questions?` spill and then Freddy Krueger hits him with the frying pan and says, "Yeah! What are YOU on? Looks like a frying pan and some eggs to me!"

Aw, my favorite one wasn`t on there, oh well, it was a newer one anyway.

It was the one where they sing about meth while the girl scrubs every crack of her house with a toothbrush.

I`m Canadian, and distinctly remember changing the lyrics of Number 3 to "Drugs drugs drugs, all are good, none are bad." I now smoke a lot of weed. Coincidence? xD

The Rachel Lee Cook one used to scare me when I was a kid. I guess I thought she`d come f*ck up my house if I ever did drugs, or something like that.

For my public policy class I just gave a presentation on the United States government`s policy on marijuana, I showed the ninja turtles PSA in my presentation.

When I was a little kid my dotor gave me drugs for some infection or other but I refused to take them because my parents, teachers etc said drugs were BAD, and drug dealers were BAD, therefore drug takers were BAD too.
Needless to say, I ended up in hospital and havent listened to a word any of them said since.

I remember the egg one. They played it constantly when I was a teen and me and my friends just made fun of it every time it came on tv.

Oh PSAs :D
I can`t remember a drug one, but I know that the old Sonic the Hedgehog cartoons had some hillarious PSAs in a segment called Sonic Says.
"If someone tries to touch you in a way that makes you uncomfortable, that`s NO GOOD." Will forever be imortalized by YouTube Poop.

Why are all the kids in these ads like 8 years old? Were people in the 80s and 90s really that convinced t hat 3rd graders were doing heroin?

Yknow, nothing on television has ever made me want to do, or not do, anything.
Except the commercial for Blueberry Muffin Frosted Mini-Wheats Cereal. It made me want to buy Blueberry Muffin Frosted Mini-Wheats Cereal. So I did.
Which is not to say it was a particularly great motivator, `cause I already liked blueberries, muffins, frosting, wheat, and cereal a whole lot.
I`m just saying.

Anti-Drug PSAs don`t work. If a kid really wants to do drugs, no amount of shirt guys or wacky turtles can stop `em. Brainwashing fail ftw.

Lol at Michelangelo`s advice to that kid who was being offered weed.

"Get a pizza!"

Further proof that Michelangelo was a hardcore stoner.

Yeah, a stoner writing about drug ads... how kitschy; and uninteresting.

I thought the ads were pretty good myself (except the Canadian one, nothing against Canadians, it just didn`t do it for me).
