Aww yeah. Check out the dad in his trim 80s tie and manly 'stache. Turning down his kid's stereo and interrupting over and over, "Answer me!" And then, the shocking and sobering denouement. This one still gets me *right here*.

I think I use less drugs than my parents did.

Somehow those commercials just didn't scare our generation that much... wonder if it was the bad acting that made smoking pot look like a joke...

Actually now that I think about it maybe that's why I stopped smoking pot after I had my first kid... I never wanted to be the dad in that commercial.

"I learned it from watching you" that is awesome!!!
I hate interrupters and when my parents (with whom I never had this sort of conversation 'cause they were hard core junkies, tweekers all the way) would interrupt (speed'll do that) I would walk away. That's still what I do. That drove me nuts about this psa

Yeah....If that guy would shut the hell up and listen to his kid for once, the kid might not feel the need to do drugs!
