Smoking marijuana has its very funny stereotypes for a reason. We imagine one hand in a Cheetoh bag, being easily distracted and making nonsensical but hilarious jokes. Now imagine all of this behind the wheel of a car. Now put an innocent kid in the passenger seat. Is it funny or scary? Just like this commercial, it’s probably both.
This creative take on “drug driving” tranforms an old issue into a new “aha” moment about the truth and severity of putting passengers at risk.
