Magic Brownies

Absolutely brilliant. Lampoons so many cultural phenomena with a bizarrely off-beat humor. I think I’ve just become a Fiber One fan.

Check out the entire over-the-top page of this viral marketing campaign: Cheech and Chong’s Magic Brownie Adventure

    OMG. That’s frikking GREAT. If the were ACTUALLY magic brownies I’d be on the way to the store right now

  • darkcycle

    P.S. Beats hell out of “The Colon Lady”.

  • Cannabis

    Aren’t they worried about the message that it sends to the children?

  • Hope

    Oh my gosh! That is cool.

    waitin for droop dog’s response,,,willing to wait forever,,in fact,,if I never saw or heard his voice again, it would be a blessing.

    This is too much,,money being made off of the thought of marijuana,,,,and it is legal money.

    tell me how the legalization of marijuana/hemp would not save this worlds economy,,,I keep forgetting.

    Wow, the fact that a major brand like General Mills actually went ahead with this concept is pretty impressive (and encouraging). It’s almost like marijuana is becoming increasingly mainstream. If I were a drug warrior, this is the kind of stuff that would scare me the most.

      I think they got a clue from the Michael Phelps Kellogg’s debacle and decided to test the (bong) waters, so to speak. And I actually like FiberOne, though it is overpriced, processed cereal (but arent’ they all?).

      Gosh Francis, I hadn’t thought that you were quite so pissed off. Well, I am presuming that you’re the pissed off man in your avatar. I’m glad your on my side.

    All I can say is WOW…the rest of the world may be finally catching up, ever so slowly

    They were comedy icons of that era. Like Laurel and Hardy. Abbot and Costello.

    I thought Cheech and Chong were hilarious, even though I didn’t have that much of a clue about cannabis personally… anybody could see they were very funny. They were ridiculously funny.

    Everybody laughed at their movies. They cleaned them up for TV which, to me, made them even better. Not to mean to sound like a prude, but I was pretty much appalled the first time I saw any uncut versions of their comedy. But they were still funny, surprised as I was at what censors had protected my gentle mind from.

    They were night club comedians before the movies.

    The commercial was like catching up with those two characters a hundred years later.

    Lol! (smiling a lot, anyway)

    They need to be releasing an anti-prohibition movie,,,where they are alcohol bootleggers at the end of alcohol prohibition and go into marijuana growing when alcohol became legal again and marijuana became illegal.

    Scan fwd to their grandchildren having the same problem when marijuana becomes legal and our drug warriors/prohibitionists have not yet established their next income source.

  • claygooding

    My thought for the decade,,,have to limit them,,because moderation is the key to all dangerous substances.

    If the prohibs would start up petitions to ramp up the WOD, increase the penalties for cannabis,,strike down all mmj laws,,etc

    We could have a nationwide vote going on before our eyes.

    Tommy Chong should be on the box. Watching him say “get high.. on fiber” next to an authentic advertisement is refreshingly honest. Maybe they will someday figure out that advertising to stoners would be a good thing. Another thing, all I can think about when I hear Tim Allen speak in a car commercial or pure michigan advertisement, all I can think about is him doing 3 years in federal prison for trafficking in some pure columbian.
