Stoner Sloth Anti-Pot PSA Backfires In Slow, Glorious Fashion
The first question I have, I guess, is: exactly how high were the people who made this PSA? The idea is that young people should be warned against the evils of weed -- and what better way to do that than with a lethargic, confused sloth?
But in truth, Stoner Sloth doesn't care about drugs. All he really wants is to be loved.
Just look how Stoner Sloth is shunned, marginalized and made to feel worthless in this series of public service announcements produced by the Government of New South Wales. Poor Stoner Sloth.
This is just the right amount of bizarre for much of social media. Instead of warning kids off of pot, Stoner Sloth has become an ironic hero. Who doesn't wan to be a sloth? It's probably not not what the government had in mind.
"Stoner sloth" tells kids to stop smoking weed. Guarantee people are going to get high just to watch that. https://t.co/iKLHEaAsg5

#StonerSloth has got to be the least effective anti-drug campaign I have ever seen. Who doesn't want to be a sloth?
