If there’s anything I know, it’s that there are no better spokesthings for responsible drinking and designated drivers than the denizens of that most wretched hive of scum and villainy, the Mos Eisley Cantina.  Yup, it’s a Star Wars PSA from 1979.  While one would think that this was an anomaly (not unlike the Star Wars Christmas Special), this is actually part of a series which included an anti-smoking and an immunization psa

It’s actually a shame I don’t remember seeing these on TV.  Had the cast of Star Wars told me not to smoke, there wouldnt’ be a thing in the world that could have gotten me started.  Way to let me down again, George Lucas!

    I don’t know…the smoking ad made it look pretty cool. I mean, R2D2 thinks it’s cool. I only want to smoke more knowing that C3P0 is against it…

    Haha, nice post title.  Actually, now that I think about it, it would’ve been so much more awesome if Dr. Evazan was giving the PSAs.  At some point someone would inevitably claim that they’ll “be careful” about driving/smoking/pneumonia; to which Evazan would emphatically reply, “YOU’LL BE DEAD!”
