The message is there, but the acting, oh the acting!
Comedian/pro-pot activist Steve Burke has created a parody of “You’re The One That I Want” from Grease in support of Florida’s Proposition 2, which will legalize medical marijuana in the state if it passes this November.
In a rewording worthy of Weird Al, “You’re The One That I Want” becomes “You’re the law that I want, you are the law I want. Yes on 2, honey!” Yes I’m serious, honey.
I really want to support any and all attempts at garnering awareness and support for medical marijuana, but I don’t know if this is going to help or hurt the pro-pot cause. Can’t you just see naysayers watching this video and saying, “See the kind of shit you think is a good idea when your brain’s on pot?!”
Either way, props to Burke for trying. Who knows, maybe there’s a huge conglomerate of Grease fans down in the sunshine state? On second thought, that may hurt us more.
