It's almost too much to be believable, but Mashable reports that the New South Wales Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPC) is responsible for what may be the most bizarre anti-pot public service announcement ever created.

With full credit for eschewing the long debunked stereotype of cannabis-inducing reefer-madness style manic insanity, the PSA in question shows a human adult in a sloth monkey costume, mumbling incoherently and half-heartedly gesturing towards the camera in response to every day requests like, "could you pass the salt please, darling?"

If there were some stereotype or even coherent message to be debunked in this PSA, we'd give it a shot, but after repeated watches and more than just a little bemusement, we are unable to discern exactly what the spots are supposed to be communicating.

Maybe it's an Australian thing.

Give it a watch yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments or on Twitter.

The internet, predictably, finds the sloth quite loveable.
