Acid Redux. 1960s LSD Propaganda Film


That dog, it was so hot, you know like, it was a hot…dog. That’s so heavy.
The girl talking to the wiener bears a striking resemblance to Kara. I don’t remember her coming to the party but I was sort of preoccupied. I could be wrong.

That was too funny. Funny what the mind will conjure up. I remember once thinking that someone looked like a piece of okra, for heaven's sake... and I laughed and laughed and laughed my rear end off! I also rolled over laughing at a lone sneaker, once, so comical it had become, in my mind's eye, just sitting there, laces ridiculously splayed out on either side, while minding it's own business. Go figure. The things we see, the things we think. The mind is a truly strange thing... under the influence... or not.

Shimmerrings, I used to live in a house with that fake wood-grain wall paneling. It was very popular paneling on those special nights. I remember a lot of mornings after with sore jaw and stomach muscles from laughing so damn hard.

LOL, oh My...the Memories! I think legally I could be considered clinically insane from the stuff we used to 'drop.' I remember once sneaking into a neighbor pool in the wee hours of the night. It was dark, very dark, and everytime I went under water I thought I could hear frogs, but blamed it on my state of mind. After I pulled myself up & sat on the ledge, I realized that the pool was actually full of 100's of frogs and tadpoles. LOL, you know it's bad when you dismiss reality, calling it a hallucination.

It's funny all these lsd and pot movies only focus on bad trips when most are prefectly harmless.

I half expected Jack Webb to appear and lecture us about tripping the mary jane and toking the acid.

I'm guessing that girl had deep seated weiner issues.

Blame it on the marijuana she was 'jacked up' on.

Well, if I DO look like her, I'm remarkably well-preserved today. If that had been me, though...I'm pretty sure I would've NOT thought that outfit looked good...despite the "pretty colors".

Oh, and just to make myself sound really square...when she said "and I dropped it"...my first thought was how stupid that plot point was since no one cares if she drops the pill, I mean, she obviously finds it on the floor somewhere, right? No joke, I'm that slow.

First I wondered how Kara could murder that hot dog when it had a wife and seven kids, then I thought, yeah, that's just like Kara.

That hotdog was sooooo asking for it.

I WANTED TO KILL IT TOO

Besides- Market Street is rough these days, people probably get killed there all the time, hotdogs or not.

Good on you, Kara.

Skinny, we were renowned for crashing apartment complex pools after midnight. We pretty much got caught almost every time, but that was part of the fun I guess. Funny thing, of all of the times that we tripped, I never once had a bad experience. You would think the law of averages would have caught up with us.

Hammer, yeah, it’s funny when government tight asses try to be “hip.” I get the same feeling of uneasiness when comedians bomb out on stage.

Rhea, if only she hadn’t taken the “gateway drug” mary-hane [sic], maybe then she might have rejected the devils filthy seed.

Kara, I don’t know, it was the seventies after all. Btw, “dropping” went out of style fairly early. During my heyday, everyone was “doin a hit.”

Jen, if a person finds that they have been ground into a paste and machine excreted into a sheep intestine, at that point in life I don’t think it should be considered murder if someone covers them in kraut and mustard and then chews their legs off. But that’s just me.

Adrian, yeah, I was ready for her to shut that damn thing up. EAT THE DAMN DOG ALREADY! That was one irritating wiener.

~Schimmi, government propaganda films are always creepy, and stupid. That’s their job.

That was awful. The girl AND the hot dog needed to be stomped on right there in the middle of market street.

Rachel, no, the girl needed to eat the hotdog and quit freaking out.

Jazz, that was apparently the best our government could do in the special effects department.

I don't understand. Was that made to discourage LSD use or to INcourage it? It looked kind of fun. I would love to be able to carry on a meaningful conversation with a hot dog. I totally wanted to know what the hot dog did to supoprt his wife and kids at home. I probably would have asked to see pictures of his kids to see if the look like those cockatil pig in blanket weiners. I think that would be cool!

Do they still make LSD? I'd love to try it out.

LOL at comment on 'being jacked up on pot'...it is not known for it's motivating factors.

LOL again at Dr. Blogstein...I am not speaking for Slag, he is a wise man, but from my own personal experience I could never suggest(now) that someone try LSD. Although it is not addictive, it is a high that once begun cannot be stopped & one cannot sleep it off. Your perceptions of reality are truly transformed. It is not as common today as a drug called ecstasy has taken it's place for the most part.

I could murder a hot dog myself right now

Hey doc, I think we all know what Mr. Weiner does to support his family. I don’t judge him though, a wiener’s got to do what a wiener’s got to do. And the answer is yes, they do still make LSD. In the beginning, Timothy Leary was handing it out free on college campuses. Of course, Uncle Sam made it illegal and now you have to break the law if you want to have meaningful conversations with processed meat food products.

Skinny, the “jacked up” line was pretty funny. The gov’s got to keep harping on the “gateway” drug theme. It’s must be a really difficult job to make a mountain out of a mole hill year after year, even in the face of indisputable evidence to the contrary.
I agree with Skinny on the issue of trying it out. If you do, you had better be a tally-ho type of motherf*ucker, ready to party your godd*mn ass off till dawn. If there’s any self doubt, don’t bother with it.

Judith, make that hot dog pay for what it did. I’ll be seeking vengeance myself come Sunday. There’s going to be a cookout and Mr. Weiner is invited to the party.

Yeah, I gotta agree. That is freaky. Cool find, though.

This movie sponsored by the taco manufacturers of America.

Hi Mapwing, yep, talking to a hotdog definitely falls into that category.

Hey Crankster, like I ever needed a reason to eat a taco. If they are behind it, they’re preaching to the choir

These movies are pretty damn funny, if you don't watch them, just listen. I mean how many times have you seen the same thing someone else has. It is always entertaining to hear someone tell there stories though.

Hi Anonymous, I agree. Everybody experiences reality through a filter of his or her own personal bias. While bias and its resulting subjectivity are usually considered bad things, without it there would be no humor.

who the hell buys hot dogs while under the influence?

Hi Mark, that's a good question. The most likely answer would be young actresses auditioning for lead roles in Government anti-drug propaganda films. Unless of course we are talking about weed in which case it would be every person on earth who had just smoked a doobie.
