Drug-Driving - The Truth Shall Be Told!


What the fuck is this advert supposed to be telling us? That taking "drugs" (any drugs, or presumably any illegal drugs) turns the imbiber into a Large Grey Alien?? That a policeman driving a police car at night in the rain will be able to spot you, you mutant scum-dribbler? That he will then come and arrest yo' ass FOR HAVING UNFEASIBLY LARGE EYES?? Personally, I'm tempted to go out and score right now so I can spend all evening staring in a mirror and giggling at my ocular munificence. You twats, you've spent my taxes on this drivel...

(Incidentally, I once met the rather marvellous screenwriter - and possibly director? - of "Buffalo Soldiers," the Joaquin Phoenix-starring US army satire. Anyway, she told me an excellent story about Rick Rubin's predilection for hunting Large Greys. So now you know... Want to be America's Greatest Rock Producer? Being a Buddhist is not enough - chase other life forms in your spare time).

You're right. It's hilarious. Some completely clueless civil servant thought this laughable nonsense up at a dull brainstorming session where they tried to list the downsides of drug abuse. The average 16-24 yr old will just see it as another form of peer pressure and go, "What the fuck--I'm missing out again! Everyone else is doing it!" Strangely, the ad is always followed by an ad for some sparkling eye drops from L-Oreal that makes your eyes look like the eyes in the drug ad. Because you're worth it! Geniuses!

I'm liking the way it seems to be saying, yeah take drugs, but if you drive watch out you don't get caught by ogling coopers with your anime eyes. Perhaps it speaks the truth after all.
