Don’t do drugs if you want to be a Rockstar

A father in Toronto has posted his 15-year-old son Isaac’s Christmas present on eBay after coming home and catching Isaac and his friends enjoying a little wacky tobaccy.  The gift in question is this year’s “must have” item, none other than Guitar Hero III.  You can read more into the story at the auction page found here.

On the one hand, I don’t think catching his teenage son smoking weed in the backyard was a big deal, but at the same time, in this age of super-consumerism and spoiled children, the father has chosen a creative and attention-grabbing punishment.  If this was Rock Band, however, I don’t know if I’d feel the same way…

  1. When I was a kid, we didn’t have any of this damn Guitar Hero III. If we were smart enough to score some chronic on our meager allowances (50 cents a week), then my father applauded our efforts. Kids and parents today!

  2. Somehow i missed the point. Probably lost in translation 🙂 Anyway … nice blog to visit.

    cheers, Playact.
