    Don't mess with an angry woman who can effortlessly swing a cast iron pan with a single hand.

    They should totally have a movie alien dude based on the snake-guy from #5.

    That would be so awesome (but kinda scary)

    HA! Amazing as always, valued critic. :D

    Thank you for mentioning the Rachael Leigh Cook frying pan PSA. It's not great nostalgia or anything--she's just hot.

    I couldnt' agree more. That PSA was the first time I saw her, and I was hooked
  • Manos
    LMAO!!! #1 is DEFINITELY up there! Pee Wee Herman talking about crack made me laugh out loud.

    Hilarious one, even though the Star Wars PSA is probably the one of those I've seen beforehand.

    #9 and #2 were probably my favourite segments of the review. Excellent work, Nostalgia Critic.

    My favorite part is that most drug PSAs didn't even tell kids what drugs ARE... just that whatever they are is bad. Drug pushers only had to say "these aren't drugs" to get kids hooked if they really wanted to. How's the kid going to know?

    DAMN Rachael is hot. She was right for the voice of Tifa in Advent Children.

    ANYWHO
    I dunno NC. I mean, it was cool to see old drug commercials, but I honestly didn't even crack a smile until the #1, and then I busted up laughing. Not knocking on you or anything, you've actually inspired me to start doing my own video reviews (coming soon!). I just think that your strength comes in reviewing shit movies that we grew up with. hahaha and I'm sure we'd ALL be able to think of some for you.

    In the recent news update, it said that there would be something special with the new Nostalgia Critic. What was it?

    Or will it be in the Captain Planet review? And when is that going up?

    PS- I love the 2001 a Space Odyssey thing with the blatant green screen and the Peewee impression.

    Loved it, as usual! Great job! ;D

    Great vid! Wait. That was Rachael Leigh Cook (The only decent voice over in FF7AC)?
  • Joker
    He should've included the Montana Meth Ads. Those are funny stuff.

    After watching all those PSA's, it actually makes me want to do drugs.

    By the way, you sound exactly like Pee Wee Herman, it made me think you are him for a sec. :P

    I think they were taunting you to try drugs just to see if they get better while on em.

    So... what exactly is the "truth behind the government propaganda?"

    I would've switched the #2 and #3 spots, but #1 was right on the money. That whole spot was just insane and the joke about Playhouse being drug-inspired was hilarious.

    Also, it's great to see you do impressions like that. It reminded me of that dead-ringer Woody Woodpecker you did for the Batman & Robin review. Fun stuff.

    We shouldn't be surprised to see such over-the-top PSAs. Everyone loves a good scapegoat and parents (for some reason) seem to want the TV to do the parenting for them. The whole thing is shameful, really.

    Let me add, in closing, with this statement: I know -- beyond any shadow of a doubt -- that if Marlboro, Newport, Kool, etc. put their minds, money and lobbyists to it, they could make marijuana legal.

    This is hilarious. I just love ThatGuy's reaction to "The greatest comback in the history of victorious zingers" and the graphic behind him in #2. It had me dying.

    Great stuff here. Sure I never saw any them on T.V. and only saw a few of them on the internet, but the video was still great. I'm surprised you didn't mention the extended version of this is your brain on drugs PSA done by Robot Chicken.

    Anywho, the Captain Planet episode about drugs is just epic. There are so many things to say about it that you could probably do an entire video on it. Maybe I'll write a blog on it if it's not mentioned in the next NC video...

    If memory serves me correctly, that audio sample early on is Gorillaz' Left Hand Suzuki Method.

    One of my favorite old PSAs was about a doctor getting high and asking a kid on his operating table what he was in for- Tonsilitis? The kid frantically says, "Appendicitis!" And the doctor proceeds to smoke and giggle just like the characters in Reefer Madness. Insert serious drug talk here. The ending is why I loved it: Cut back to the doctor, we're not watching from the kid's point of view, and the doctor's coming toward us with a scalpel, giggling, "Now let's see if I can make a straight line."
