I came across this PSA against marijuana usage and found it quite comical. The idea is that smoking marijuana waste potential. While I humbly disagree this is not my issue with the ad (nor do I want this to be the place to debate such topics). I take issue with the fact that they chose to show a swimmer as the one who must be wasting away.
I’m not sure who the genius that came up with this one was but they clearly forgot about that a 14 time Olympic Gold medalist swimmer no doubt enjoys the occasional hit from a bong! Ignore the fact that the person they chose for this is not the skinniest person and that Phelps actually has a legit six-pack, why would they choose swimming after such a publicized scandal? You can file this one under the poorly thought out category.
Do PSAs even work anymore? Did they ever?
