30 Jack in the Box tacos should suffice

Stoner For those of you who celebrate 4/20 for reasons not involving a birthday or anniversary, here’s a special stoner spot for you: the notorious Jack in the Box ad from last year in which our hero sits there in his van in the drive-through, unable to order or even speak properly. (No doubt he has difficulty driving, too, but doesn’t seem to have killed anyone en route.) With the help of a dashboard Jack, he decides he’ll have 30 tacos, which should help ease what ails him. Several anti-drug groups protested the spot, to which Jack in the Box responded dryly: “Our goal with this ad was to suggest that our tacos are an affordable and delicious way to satisfy one’s appetite.”
