'80s Anti-Drug Commercial - Parents Who Use Drugs

Other Gems (Advertisements), Viral (Time Capsule)
[ 0:17 - from YouTube ]
This video is part of our Forgotten Commercials: Lost In Time, Found Online Spotlight

Man, I totally remember seeing this commercial as a kid. It was programmed in my after school line-up somewhere between "G.I. Joe" and "The Cosby Show." Which is kinda weird because wasn't this ad supposed to target parents? That might explain the failed war on drugs. On a more trivial note: doesn't the father look like a young, pre-greying Einstein? Gene Shalit without glasses and 1/3 the moustache? Could be just me...
