*PB and (Mary) J(ane)

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who thinks that Skippy elephant commercial is for stoners:

Skippy is targeting stoners. I think this is by far the most plausible explanation. My friend (who may or may not have been stoned himself--I make no assumptions) says he saw this ad at around 2 a.m. on the Cartoon Network. And I found a chat-board post about the ad from someone who says he saw it at 3:30 a.m. during a Conan rerun. First of all, why show the ad at these hours if the target is children? Second, I ask you this: What do high people love? Late-night television. What else do they love? Snacks. And? Freaky animation with talking animals, like Fritz the Cat and stuff. Finally, where does dancehall come from? Jamaica! See what I mean? If Skippy signs Harold and Kumar, we'll know for certain.

I feel validated somehow.
