NSW Government’s Anti-Stoner Ad Backfires Spectacularly

As Afroman would say “I was gonna go to class before I got high (La da da da da da da da da)”. Over the weekend the NSW government’s anti-marijuana campaign has sparked a fire in social media as it depicts cannabis smoking teens as adorable sloths.

The Stoner Sloth campaign consists of three videos with the tagline “You’re worse on weed”.

In one video clip, the sloth can’t submit a class assignment. The accompanying tagline: “When you realise you should have hit the books and not the bong”.  In another clip, a sloth named Jason, fails to pass the salt at the family dinner table and disappoints his dad. The tagline reads: “Stoned at dinner and the struggle is too real”. The final clip is at a party where people take selfies with stoner sloth because he is so out of it. The tagline is: “When your mate turns into ‘that guy’ at the party”).

#stonersloth has been trending on Twitter for 10 hours now, here are some of the best reactions:
