Earlier today, Little Kuriboh uploaded “Yami – My Antidrug,” a parody of a 2003 public service announcement (PSA) featuring Yami that encouraged kids not to use marijuana. LK’s version is an almost word-for-word replicate of the original PSA — with an obligatory YGO: TAS-themed twist of course!

LK’s PSA was created for an online charity event that the That Guy with the Glasses crew ran on December 5. The fundraiser benefited the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana and raised over $31,000! A recording of the live event is available: part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

LK’s video aired at around 51:30 in part 3. The TGWTG team didn’t seem to get it, haha, though Doug agreed that card games are a better addiction than drugs, especially if the game is the Geek Fight! CCG.

The original PSA, called “Honor: My Anti-Drug,” was created through a partnership between the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy and 4Kids Entertainment in the summer of 2003 and could be found on yugioh.com and freevibe.com.

This isn’t the first time that the Yu-Gi-Oh! anti-drug PSA has served as fodder for LK. Back in episode 6, Yami made a proud and memorable declaration: “Actually, I do smoke marijuana! It’s gooood stuff.” I wonder how many people caught the reference back then.

  1. I just need to know, did they actually make the joke about Geek Fight in the broadcast? I was wondering why traffic was so high that day. :P

  2. Yeah, they actually did, lol. Doug flashed his Geek Fight! deck for everyone to see, too. :)

  3. That explains the moderate increase in sales then. :)

    I’m glad everyone seems to be letting all of the delays we experienced during the pre-sale slide. Needless to say we are never holding one of those again.

    Oh, and in case you are wondering, this is not just some rep from Diving Dragon Games. I’m the boss (argh! I can never escape that music video).

  4. It’s a great music video. :D
