SchwerMetall154 : "How many did he buy, 15, okay let's calculate that out, let's get the calculator real quick... $363, I mean what's that three tickets to Disneyland? If you get that much fun out of a monkey-surfboard-piggybank GOD BLESS YOU! God bless you." - Jon Jafari 2016

yolognos : it took 1/8 of a monkey turn!

Cameo64 : you dont have to be high on pot to spend hundreds of dollars on memes. trust me, im high on memes now.

Corey Murray : From the co-creator of that PSA (which dates to 1999, BTW): "A buddy of mine and his wife totally smoked out one night. The next morning, they woke up on the sofa, their ribs and stomach muscles were hurting. They didn’t remember much of anything, other than laughing their asses off. "About a week later, a UPS guy knocked on their door, bearing some boxes from QVC. While they were all gassed out, they bought a Star Trek collector’s plate, a Chi-Wash-Wa home car washing system and a Michael Jordan in-flight pewter statuette. All in all, about $400. That must’ve been some great weed. "When they told me the story, I thought that’d make an awesome commercial, but all of that was too much to put into a :30 spot. We needed to drill it down to one item for simplicity and comedy’s sake. My buddy Greg hit on the idea of something really ridiculous like a surfing monkey coin bank. We shot the spot for like $300 and sold it through to the Partnership For A Drug-Free America. It ran in 1999-2000, and, to this day, remains one of their most beloved and recalled commercials."

BlakeShawn Music LLC : sounds like a good time

Dom Jenkins : This is suppose to be a bad thing? that's the least harmful of drugs.. Imagine if the caller was on coke instead. He would be thinking the monkey was trying kill to him instead of laughing at it.

DonPeyote : I don't get it: is the point of the psa that when people get high, they make bad decisions, or is it a play on the slang word "monkey" from 1930s that meant drug dependency?
