This New Zealand anti-drug-driving ad is almost as funny as that fake anti-weed commercial from the first Harold and Kumar movie.

Made for the New Zealand Transport Agency by Oscar-nominated director Taika Waititi, the ad features three kids bragging about which of their fathers is the most amusing “blazed” driver.

The incredible acting and utterly hilarious dialogue has quickly propelled the ad to viral status, and was declared an “instant Advertising Hall of Fame Drugs PSA classic” by advertising blog Copyranter.

A more effective ad would probably just list all of the car accidents proven to have been caused by marijuana. Oh wait…

Another Guy Was A Swipe Away: Why I’m Now Into Actual Human Courtship

It’s a jab, a smack, an insult that lies somewhere between “socially awkward” and “f*cking loser.” What I’d like to say back to my high school peers, […]
