Dr B’s Film Club | The Drag


Untitled drawing

“Dr B’s Film Club is a showcase for the ‘Short Films’ we are currently digging here at B’ Vaping HQ. Not ALWAYS constrained exclusively to vape or #vapelife. We and the B’ peruse the dusty depths of the web for all manner of celluloid art…popcorn-tastic times”
Dr B’s Film Club showing: 

The Drag

God bless those Canadians and their national arts funding, even their public service programs are some of the loveliest little vignettes ever committed to animation. The Drag is an anti-smoking Public Service Announcement (PSA) from 1966. Sure, it’s a bit of a preachy and cautionary tale of peer-pressure but the swinging soundtrack and groovy animation makes for a great little cartoon. The animator Carlo Marchiori is now a muralist and you can see how he gravitated toward lush graphics early on. Funnily enough as a PSA, The Drag is actually a bit of a flop. Our nicotine-addicted protagonist who refers to cigs’ as ‘the drug’ avoids lung cancer but instead blows himself up on account of a gas leak!…Huh? Got that kids? If you don’t want to quit just make sure you’ve got an electric stove! – Dangerous Minds
