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."
