DRUG EFFECT ON SPIDERS

You may have seen this. It was produced by a church in Canada. Very creative.

I'm a little confused by it. Is it supposed to be serious or funny?

My apologies, Pat. I can't resist questions like that. (My wife gives me 'the look' whenever I do this, so I shall chastise myself.)

I can't speak for the creators but I suspect it is aimed at the HS-college crowd. Get their attention, hit them with 'the hook,' and make your point without coming off as preaching to them. While I couldn't show this in my classroom, we did watch it with our church youth group, and they all thought it got the message across without making them feel like they were being patronized.

It's great. Sending it to my kids. That should tell you something about my kids.

It sends a powerful message in a funny way. I got a kick out of it!

Michael, I knew what you were doing and I had a great laugh from it.

I rather suspected it was for the h.s. and college crowd. I wondered how touching the swab on the spider would affect it!? Maybe it's like wearing a patch for nicotine control or birth control or pain relief...

The concept actually started out as some scientist's research into the effect of drugs on non-humans. I think the first scenes were part of his research. Not sure exactly when it turned into this final product or who hijacked it, but since I work with this age group, I'm glad they did.

The best response was from a drug user who thought it all was real, and wanted to know how they got the spider to ride that car.
