This Is Your Country, Fighting the War on Drugs

I thought up an addition to the Partnership for a Drug-Free America's This is Your Brain on Drugs commercial.

Holding up an egg: "This is your brain."
Pointing at a frying pan: "This is drugs."
Frying the egg in the frying pan: "This is your brain on drugs."

With the narrator from above looking out the door of a house: "This is your country."
Viewing an attack helicopter: "This is the war on drugs."
Showing a missile fired from the attack helicopter into the house, and the house exploding in flames: "This is your country, fighting the war on drugs."

"Any questions?"

Penn & Teller rock! Thanks for that video link.

For the search engines, Teller points at a frying pan on the floor, Penn, the narrator says, "This is drugs". Teller points at a bunch of eggs on the floor labelled, "Pursuit of Happiness", "Privacy", "Choice", "Self Determination", etc. Switch to Penn in a steam-roller. "And THIS is the government". Penn proceeds to run over the pan and the eggs, smashing them flat. The camera pans over the smashed eggs. "Any questions."

SUGGEST: After egg is fried but before the narrator looks out the door

SHOW: Person who's brain is supposed to have been fried eating the egg with great enjoyment.

Ah,sorry Bill. Just couldn't help myself.
