Reno Roller Rink Wants Kids to Say 'No' to Crack and 'Yes' to Roller Skating


This ad for Reno, Nev., roller skating rink Roller Kingdom is either pure genius or the The Room of commercials.

Although you get a hefty dose of what to expect just from the title alone, "Say NO to Crack, Say YES! to Roller Skating," that title—good as it is—cannot prepare a viewer for the fantastic casting choices in this low-budget commercial.

Unless, of course, you see a geriatric man sporting a skateboard and a flannel as an appropriate choice to portray a gang leader, and cannot clearly recognize the "drugs" offered as a handful of Advil.

The video is also full of nuggets of testimonial wisdom like: "Prison is full of people that has never roller skated," and "Because I roller skate today, I will go to college tomorrow."
