DRUG AVENGERS

This is why you don't send randomly selected teenagers back in time to fight a planetary drug problem.



Thanks to Zena Grey for introducing us to the Drug Avengers.

I hope they're happy with themselves. One of those kids that would've died of an overdose grew up to be the new Hitler. You know what's worse than drugs? Messing with the time space continuum...gawd.

All it needs is the TV Funhouse theme at the intro!

I WANTED MORE CHRONO

You drug avengers are the chosen ones... chosen at random by a computer.

I apologize for screwing up Earth's admittance into the Diplomatic Association of Planets because my friends and I brought along a cooler and smoked a joint at the Radiohead concert at Great Woods a few years ago.

"I WANTED MORE CHRONO"

Speaking of, WHY did they cart Chrono along on their time-traveling anyway? He doesn't seem to have any special powers, and he's a tad conspicuous, no?

~*~O-o-or~*~

DRUG AVENGER: "Hey, kid! Don't do drugs!"

PRESENT-DAY KID: "Well, okay, I guess I'll stop doing dru--- SWEET MOTHER OF GOD, WHAT THE HELL IS THAT THING?!?"

DRUG AVENGER: "What, him? Oh, that's just Chrono."

PRESENT-DAY KID: "Tell him I HATE him!!!"

They look like court sketches.

I'm pretty sure our application will be denied when the Federation finds out about our "Madame President"

I was thinking this was remarkable well-animated for what it is, but then things started moving. :(

Holy crap, Maynard sounds SO much like Leonard Cohen in the late 80's. I kind of love this.

I actually exclaimed aloud during this video how awesomely, delightfully terrible I found it to be. Could be the beer talking.

It cut away right before she got pelted with beer bottles.

Also was that an Ecstasy beam?

Don't do drugs! They're bad for your body!

*shoots you with beam that causes same effects of drugs*

"I don't need drugs to have fun!", but they could have saved you from the beating and lynching you're about to receive.

Ah, natural order, ain't it grand.

Victor and the black chick totally have something going on. Just sayin'

That "Galactic Council" invite is just the outer space equivalent of a Nigerian email scam anyway. I read all the testimonials on their website and they've all got the same identical typos. If we weren't so high we would've realized that.

but... what does not being in the galactic federal have to do with drugs? people would be doing drugs anyways. this video actually made me go and smoke some pot since i wanted to.

The animation looks similar to the half-animated opening to "Reading Rainbow".

Reading Rainbow + Captain Planet + Scientology propaganda = this

Fuck galactic federation! They are not going to take my marijuana!

What the hell is on the right side of those 2 kids at 0:21 into the video? Looks like something Giger drew. Looks subliminal to me. Did Disney have something to do with this?

fruit of the loom apple at 1:20 distracted me

This is right up there with Straight Up. Pure anti-drug 80s cheesiness!

It doesn't matter what you're on, when you start seeing fucked up little cartoon monsters like whatever the hell Chrono is, you've got a serious problem on your hands. They didn't need to send the drug avengers back at all; if that thing showed up and started talking to me, I know I'd immediately go straight edge forever. Or maybe just slowly back away and check myself into the nearest psych ward.
