Were you watching TV on 4/20? Maybe Fuse? Maybe "Reefer Madness" on Fuse? Then maybe you've already seen a 60-second version of Wingstop's trippy stunt ad (you didn't just imagine it, bruh!) out of Barkley, which was created to air on the stoner national holiday to remind the slightly blurry among us what to do when hunger hits.

According to, the ad ran a total of six times on 4/20 on (of course) Viceland and Adult Swim in addition to Fuse.

In a genius move, the online version of the ad runs a full 10 minutes. And it gets deep.

P.S. There's a 360 version here.

P.P.S. Wingstop appears to be looking for a new creative agency.

P.P.P.S. Bathtubs are like reverse boats.
