It's not a huge surprise that Willie Nelson makes a cameo in the lighthearted (and smoke-filled) new video for Toby Keith's weed-centric country party song, "Wacky Tobaccy." After all, Willie is a known pothead and a longtime advocate of marijuana legalization. What's a tiny bit surprising is that, a few years ago, Keith jokingly sang that he would "never smoke with Willie again." And now here is, toking up with Willie again:
That's the power of the reefer, people. One minute you're swearing off the pot and the next you're on your fancy tourbus getting high with one of the coolest mofos on the planet.
(Honestly, I think the only thing truly surprising is that Snoop Dogg wasn't invited to this pot party.)
Here's a taste of the song's lyrics:
Know you can two tote her, you can one hit him, puff it in a pipe and you can twist it in a stem, you can bake it in some brownies, smoke it through a Bong, roll up a great big fat one like ol' Cheech and Chong, Burn it through a hole, in a can of Budweiser, if you can't take the heat son vaporizer
That old Wacky Tobaccy, When you feel it creeping up on you,
That old Wacky Tobaccy, Kick back and let it do what it do
One small step for Toby Keith, one slightly-bigger step for mainstreaming cannabis culture.
