13 Funny Anti-Drug Ads

The problem is — they’re not supposed to be funny.


Geezer Junkie!
“Ethyl, help me find a vein, goddammit!”
Uh, yes there are old junkies. In addition to being funny, these ads via the UK are complete bullshit.
Two more ads from the campaign below.

“Gotta get wired, Matlock marathon tonight.”

What the hell is pops lighting?
He needs his friend William Burroughs to come over and show him the ropes.

Via Spain.
UPDATE: This one actually doesn’t belong on this list because it is kinda funny, and was meant to be. It’s here because: who, exactly, is this ad targeting? Drug runners? No. You know who it is targeting? Cannes award judges, because it’s a fake ad that never ran, or it was just placed on a Facebook page somewhere.
This happens all the time in the wonderful ad industry.

I purposely didn’t include any vintage anti-drug ads, because pretty much all of those are funny. But I couldn’t resist this one.
