“Because I Got High” is the cautionary tale of Afroman’s stoner life: always one step away from doing the right thing, ever thwarted by that wacky weed. The song is almost genius in its weird simplicity. Goofy voices + bird sounds + bass + well-placed “da-da-da-dadadas”= Grammy nomination in 2002. Fun fact.

Counter to the song’s purported life lesson, what we actually glean from the video is that POT MAKES YOU DRIVE AN AMAZING ICE CREAM TRUCK. Really, though, there are a lot of missed opportunities here — we see the ex who wants child support, but not him running from the the cops? Come now.

Also, I choose to ignore the forced, unfunny appearance of Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes here. Whatever, clerks. Steele, I know what you’re going to say.
