Jake Roberts Say No To Drugs

This is an anti-drug Public Service Announcement ad featuring Jake “The Snake” Roberts that ran in WWF Magazine in the early 90’s.

This reminds me of a bit from Denis Leary’s* No Cure For Cancer” special/album. Paraphrasing:

Keith Richards is now doing anti-drug PSAs. Keith Richards! He’s telling us not to do drugs. We can’t do any drugs, Keith because you’ve already freaking done them all!

*Which probably means it originated with a Bill Hicks routine…

    And kids take this message seriously from a guy wearing a snake like a shawl. If he was wearing a wifebeater, had both arms sleeved with tats and had fewer teeth he would like any carny at your local state fair, snake included.

    So many stand-up comedians have plagiarized Bill Hicks’ material that it’s not even funny.
