There’s Something Incredibly Funny in this 1987 Anti Drug Commercial with Magic Johnson

magic_johnson_1987_04_01

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for public service announcements that aim to discourage kids from doing drugs. And  I think it’s great when an athlete gets involved and supports initiatives like this. So when you see Magic Johnson involved it’s obviously a good thing.  Plus seeing him in 1987 with the amazing goatee in the prime of his career is even cooler. But watch this video and check out the last 5 seconds.

I mean aside from Magic’s poor acting skills which is excusable because he’s an athlete not an actor, doesn’t it look like rather than just giving a kind of pat on the head to this kid it’s more of a caress?  Watch it more than once.  It’s pretty hilarious. I guess in 1987 this is OK but I have a strong feeling that in today’s world this commercial would make it to the top of social media charts in a matter of minutes.

Enjoy the video.
