I’m a Person Just Like You

January 1, 2011

How’s your head feeling this morning? Mine’s fine because I had one vodka tonic and was in bed by 10:30. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Yesterday BoingBoing posted some old PSAs promoting Straight Edge from your friends at the Partnership for a Drug-Free America:

I’m not sure when these were made, but judging by the band logos in some of the shots, I’m going to guess mid to late 90’s. This is noteworthy because until 1997, most of PDFA’s funding came from Alcohol and Tobacco companies. After ’97, they distanced themselves from those companies, but continue to receive much funding from pharmaceutical companies.

Fascinating! Plus, kids could learn about Minor Threat during commercial breaks on ABC. The 90s were weird.
