- The campaign backfired and the parodies that have come from this probably encourage smoking weed
- How many of you out there have been to Jaco or many of the surf towns in Costa Rica? #Stonersloth is alive and well…lol
Watch stoner sloth below.
The marketing campaign, titled “You’re Worse on Weed” and with the hashtag #StonerSloth, is elevating chuckles on social media, however it additionally has angered sloths the world over, and should even drive youngsters to smoke extra pot, not much less.
Apparently, in response to the NSW authorities, whenever you get stoned, you flip right into a sloth. One spot, tagged “If you realise you need to have hit the books and never the bong,” exhibits a younger sloth scholar named Delilha who’s so stoned she will’t reply a single query on a quiz. She is mocked by her classmates.
One other spot exhibits Sloth Jason struggling to move the salt to his mom on the dinner desk, handing her as an alternative a bowl of salad.
In Costa Rica, we’ve acquired a number of messages at The Tico Occasions from readers each incensed and amused over the difficulty. “One thing must be accomplished!” stated one native enterprise proprietor by way of e mail. “We will’t have our sloths getting used like this! As an Australian/Tica I’m outraged!”
For perspective, we managed to trace down Costa Rica’s most well-known sloth, Sloth Kong, who turned a worldwide sensation throughout final yr’s historic World Cup run by the Costa Rican soccer squad, “La Sele.”
“It’s absurd,” Sloth Kong advised us as he lounged in a hammock on the southern Caribbean coast, studying a guide. “If smoking pot turns you right into a sloth, I might assume extra individuals can be doing it, not much less.”
And concerning the implication that smoking pot makes you silly, and subsequently sloths are silly?
“Ain’t no one obtained time for that,” Kong replied.
