“The Reagans Speak Out on Drugs” (1988) dir. Cliff Roth

One of the earliest … and funniest … mash-ups, memes, what have you … ever created. This is Cliff Roth’s ingeniously edited pre-digital masterpiece where Ronald and Nancy Reagan deliver a pro-drug message to the nation. Hysterically funny stuff. And if you like what you see, please check out the terrific article about Roth from io9’s website about how he put it all together back in the day.
