URGENT: Marijuana Commercials Desperately Need Jingles

In a world where consumerism reigns supreme it's only natural that ad agencies take every opportunity they can to bastardize just about every good song they can get their crusty little hands on. In recent years, we've been brainwashed like Pavlov's dog to salivate about Taco Bell's cheesy gordita crunch every time we hear Passion Pit's "Take A Walk", and we now get a subconscious itch to buy a new Honda Civic every time we hear Vampire Weekend's "Holiday". Popular music has and always will play a pivotal role in the marketing of our favorite products.

As more states follow the lead of Washington and Colorado, who both legalized the recreational sale and possession of marijuana, we will soon be hearing our favorite bands' tunes embedded within the ad schemes of more than just our favorite stoner snacks. Last month, the first ever television commercial sponsored by a marijuana distributor aired, and it was absolutely horrendous. As this budding new industry continues to flourish, its commercials will undoubtedly improve. But if they don't, smoking pot will, for the first time in the history of mankind, be considered uncool.



So which musical artists will be the first to ride on this THC-spiked gravy train? What catchy song will lucky Washington and Colorado citizens be humming as they purchase the devil's lettuce? Perhaps some Flatbush Zombies...everyone knows they're all about the green goodies. Regardless, we here at Baeblemusic encourage you to "Use, but don't abuse!"... or else you might break your T.V... or even your face, as this extremely informative, new PSA will show you.
