This Drug-Free ad will kill more kids than it will save.

(click ad) Even though the ad via Drug-Free New Jersey—spotted on a PATH train by Animal—is targeting parents, kids are gonna see the cool retro typeface and drool at that cool Chevelle(?) SS, and then read about how kickass horse (that's what us geezers called heroin in the 70s) has become, and then try it, and then die. Brilliant. Previously: here's five anti-drug ads from around the world.

Note: Horse is now a far better suited pseudonym for ketamine.

Every time I see that "cool retro typeface" I think of Austin Powers, the International Man of Mystery, the spy who shagged me.

This is one dumb dumb dumb ad. Kids would read "purity" and would think that heroin is something nice.

It's an Oldsmobile 442, not a Chevelle. They're corporate siblings built on the same platform, though.

Should have put the dead baby scene from Trainspotting on there. Endless loop. If that doesn't turn the kiddies off....
