Can droids inhale?

Check out this awesome PSA from 1981 put out by Lucasfilm and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.

“R2, do you really think I don’t have a heart?” Dear god that’s heartbreaking! Now, is it just me or does R2-D2 kinda sound like he’s smoking a bong in the beginning there?

Thanks to my buddy Joe for passing this along to me. :)

    Wow, that brought back some memories. I am also that old. No, I don’t smoke. Hhmm..did C3PO and R2D2 have something to do with it? I wonder….

    I ran across this a few months ago, and flashed back to seeing it on TV as a kid. (Because yes, I am that old!) They did another of these set in the cantina, warning about the dangers of drunk driving.

    Anyone who’s seen Blue Harvest knows that Artoo/Cleveland keeps baggies of weed on him.
