In exciting news for all the nostalgic stoners out there who are looking to combine family time with drug time with “aww I miss my childhood time,” Neil Patrick Harris says The Smurfs 2 is just the movie to make that happen. And he didn’t just call and tell me that personally last night. He wasn’t like, “hello Jenni Maier? Is that you? Good. I’m going to tell you something very important and I’m only going to tell you once, The Smurfs 2 is a great film for marijuana users because 3D and all that jazz. Goodbye now.” He told the whole world last night when he spoke to Jimmy Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Live about the movie. So you can take that quote straight to the bank folks. What the bank will do with it, I don’t know. But take it there and let me know.
Oh, but before you run off and get your deposit slips, there’s more. He marches even further on his pro-drugs parade and says that it will also be great for people who partake in hallucinogenics. Which is exciting news for me because I spend way too much of my time wondering how Miley Cyrus will spend hers. But now I know that she’ll devote approximately 90 minutes this weekend to getting lost in Smurf Village — girl’s gotta put all that molly to good use. Also gotta keep the shock factor going. And what’s more shocking than an adult seeing a children’s movie without any children in tow!?
While I never in a million billion gajillion years planned on seeing this movie, I’m now slightly more intrigued that I know Neil Patrick Harris is not only in it, but also trying to reach a more diverse audience this time around. I’m still not going to see it, but I will definitely stop sneering at the posters I see popping up around town.
You can stop your sneer-fest too by watching the magic moment happen at around 3:40ish.
