Got the Munchies

This ad for American radio stations is a commentary on how musical taste can determine drug habits. The munchies describes the uncontrollable desire to eat snacks, especially after smoking marijuana. While 70s rock acts Pink Floyd and the Grateful Dead and hip hop group Cypress Hill have recorded drug songs and their listeners are likely to be stoned (high on marijuana) Hanson is a cute and wholesome band and its fans are pre-teens who go to bed long before 3:00 AM.
