The Right To Say No! PSA from the ’80s!

I have not ingested a drug ever this year this month this week today in ten minutes and that’s because the power of the Right To Say No PSA taught me that I have the right to say no to drugs. Although, after watching that PSA again, I have the right to say YES to drugs to make me forget about that earworm of a jingle.

Thanks to Nancy Reagan’s Just Say No campaign, others got into the WAR ON DRUGS like the California Attorney General’s Office. And their war on drugs involved dancing and singing kids. The Right To Say No commercial played during children’s shows in the 1980s. It starred a singing dude, who was done up like an extra from Saved By The Bell (dude would fit in at any hipster bar in Silver Lake TODAY) and let the kids know they have the right to say no to the bad shit. As he sang out lyrics like, “Getting into drugs and being high is a stupid thing to dooooooo! Being in control and saying NO is not the easiest thing to do. Be an original!“, a skater girl used her right to say no to a group of shady-looking drug dealers (and you know they’re shady because some of them are wearing sunglasses at night and they are not Corey Hart. Although, I think one might be Elton John). The skater meets up with some dancers who destroy those shady-looking drug dealers with sweet, drug-free moves!

The “I Learned It By Watching You” PSA will forever be my favorite anti-drug PSA of the 1980s, but this one is still special because of that song and because it looks like a low-rent version of Kids Incorporated. And I bet that the PLOT TWIST in this PSA is that the singing dude is secretly a drug user and a drug dealer. I mean, I know it was the 80s, but him doing the bad shit is the only explanation for that shirt.
