Short Reviews of RiffTrax Shorts: Drugs Are Like That

It's Short Reviews of RiffTrax Shorts, our new series where the title is almost as long as the actual reviews!  We are going to take a look at a RiffTrax Short every day this year, until we run out of shorts.  That will get us through the majority of the year, so strap in for madness!

(Released June 16, 2008)

This is what could best be described as "an effort" in making a anti-drug Short.  They compare using drugs to taking away a baby's pacifier, a grown man playing a kid's game, and building models with LEGO bricks.

These are not the riff, folks.  This is the material from the short.  That's the reason this riff is so great—they simply pile on more ridiculous things.  After the baby loses its binky, Bill goes off as the baby going through withdrawal symptoms complete with a hallucination of spiders.

This Short is easily in my top twenty-five.  I know that seems like a high number, but with over three hundred and twenty Shorts available, it's actually quite limiting.

Anyway, this is another PB&A Essential, and is rated five drug storms out of five.
