Any work whose creation seems to have involved large amounts of hallucinogens, cocaine, crack, or any other illicit substance that makes [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible people think really weird ideas are also really good ones]]. The plot hinges on bizarre transformations, freakish-looking creatures, and nonsensical actions that only seem to make sense in realms of logic ''far'' removed from your own. That it was the product of a deranged mind looks like a foregone conclusion.

And then you find out that it most certainly wasn't.

The creator claims that they weren't taking drugs -- or at least weren't taking them ''then'' -- or the creator just doesn't seem like a person who would take drugs of any sort.

A sad implication of this mindset is the misconception that truly creative works demand the use of mind-altering drugs -- which, if you are a creator who wasn't taking drugs but gets this accusation leveled at your work, can be something of an insult depending on your opinion of them. And in real life, composing any work of art (or doing anything more complex than opening a door, for that matter) is borderline impossible when tripping on hallucinogens like DMT or mescaline. Most admitted users of entheogens tend to do their work between trips, not during (whether or not said work is inspired by the trips.) Stuff like cocaine doesn't actually make you hallucinate or think trippy things, though it does make doing ''more'' cocaine sound like a fantastic idea.

Creators with BipolarDisorder are prone to this, as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mania manic]] phases create symptoms that are similar to drug intoxication. As mania can loosely be considered the real-life equivalent of TheMadnessPlace, it's unsurprising that [[RealityIsUnrealistic quite a number of magna opera are created under such circumstances]], but a manic phase can just as easily be the source of a 500-page AuthorTract on WordSaladPhilosophy that has even the author baffled when they stabilize.

Commonly uttered in response to a WidgetSeries, BigLippedAlligatorMoment, a particularly JustForFun/{{egregious}} MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext moment, or DadaAd. Compare with MindScrew (which refers to works that are densely symbolic and/or surreal) and of course ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs.

[[folder:Advertising]]
* There was one joke where one of the people working on the talking dog Above the Influence commercial was completely stoned when he came up with the premise.
* The "Adventureland" ad for Friskies cat food makes one wonder how much cat-nip is in there...
** It features dancing turkeys, and fish-fin sailboats, to name a few things.
** Fans commenting on Website/YouTube call this series of ads "trips through Psychedelic Kitty Land". Aw.
* Bob's Discount Furniture commercials sometimes feature things like talking claymation furniture, himself multiplying to sit on each cushion on a couch, and old west scenes. Also the actual store tends to have some pretty strange things in it.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2hQGOOR5g0 This]] compilation of Japanese Fanta commercials. It almost makes sense.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erh2ngRZxs0 Little Baby's Ice Cream,]] a commercial featuring a man made from ice cream, eating himself, talking about his glistening skin. Probably the people who made the commercial were drunk when they made it.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7PD4f5uTOU Old Spice ads]] featuring Creator/TerryCrews. As they were directed by Creator/TimAndEric, little more needs to be said other than, "''Yes'', it was made on drugs, you idiot! (Between trips though.)"
** They've also directed [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VB1GzOhaSuk two]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqrplZfkcIc commercials]] for ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird''. They involve a self-proclaimed creator of Saint's Row turning into a parrot, surreal one-liners and a man rejecting a wedding invitation because he'll always be busy playing the game.
* Sprint's "Meet the Frobinsons." The patriarch of the family is a [[TalkingAnimal talking hamster]] and the youngest daughter is constantly surrounded by [[BluebirdOfHappiness animated bluebirds]] and [[GratuitousFrench only speaks French]].
* Quiznos. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZrks-BPeLQ Enjoy!]] Dancing chicken breasts, with eyes and top hats...
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sG__-RN8lLA These railway crossing safety ads]] from Latvia. Now you wonder how much fuel or coal was in the trains.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTOP6TOJwOI This]] is an ad for a blackcurrant drink. We knew it had extra vitamin C, but this makes it look like there might be other additives.
* [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VjNLFH0BIJo This]] Peugeot ad. We're not sure if men who are lifted out of their apartments by giant cartoon octopi are exactly the biggest target group...

[[folder:Art]]
* [[http://www.beksinski.pl/ Zdzislaw Beksinski's]] eerie, surrealist paintings are based on his dreams (or more likely nightmares from living in Poland during UsefulNotes/{{W|orldWarII}}W2).
* Creator/SalvadorDali¬, despite what one might think from his paintings, made a point of not using psychoactives of any sort.
** He simply stayed up until he started hallucinating from sleep deprivation, then painted what he saw. The only exception were the times when he went to sleep very late after eating Camembert cheese, which has a slight hallucinogenic effect.
** The other story was that in the evening Dalí would sit in his favourite chair holding a set of keys over a dinner plate. As he started to drop into sleep, his grip on his keys would loosen and the resulting clatter would wake him up, leaving early dream images (which can be ''very'' weird) in his mind.
** "I don't do drugs. I ''am'' drugs."
* Quoth Creator/MCEscher, "I don't use drugs--my dreams are frightening enough."
* The pictured artist, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vladimir_Kush Vladimir Kush,]] just has a thing for metaphors.
* Joan Miró, a Surrealist painter and colleague of Dalí, was initially [[StarvingArtist inspired by the hallucinations that he would endure from poverty-induced starvation]]. Talk about taking lemons...
* Averted by [[http://bryanlewissaunders.org/drugs/ Bryan Lewis Saunders.]] This guy purposely took drugs and then created self-portraits, to see the effect the substances would have on his art...
* Artist and webcomic creator Creator/UrsulaVernon has done exactly one painting ([[http://www.redwombatstudio.com/wpg2?g2_itemId=1086 Toadback Road]]) inspired by ideas she got when smoking pot. The rest of her work, no matter how weird, plays this trope straight.
* Painter [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_Wain Louis Wain]] produced [[http://dangerousminds.net/content/uploads/images/wainmisterimente1.jpg increasingly trippy paintings of cats]] in his later career. However, this was due to [[SanitySlippage advancing schizophrenia]], not recreational substances.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* {{Crack Fic}}s are essentially this. Many writers even attempt to advertise their fics through claims that they were under chemical influence while writing. This is not always effective, and many readers take such claims as a warning to avoid the fic entirely.
* {{Subverted|Trope}} with [[http://browse.deviantart.com/?q=heterosexual+mpreg#/art/Heterosexual-mpreg-231841278?_sid=3aeefbd6 this]] [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic My Little Pony]] fanfic. The author and his friends were "high on painkillers" when he wrote it.
* ''Anything'' [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic pony-related]] by [[http://derpibooru.org/tags/artist-colon-dtkraus Dan Kraus]] or [[http://derpibooru.org/tags/artist-colon-capnpea Capnpea,]] though Kraus has admitted to getting very ''very'' drunk before doing most of his pictures.
* In an in-universe example, in ''[[FanFic/EquestriaAHistoryRevealed Equestria: A History Revealed]]'', though many of the LemonyNarrator-author's theories seem to be so farfetched that drugs must have been a factor, other than the few chapters where she does get drunk, her conclusions are usually the product of her own crazed, [[ConspiracyTheorist conspiracy addled]] mind.
* Some {{Troll Fic}}s. Particularly, ''FanFic/LightAndDarkTheAdventuresOfDarkYagami''.
* ''WebVideo/CodeMENT'' and ''WebVideo/NonePiece'', both made by [=PurpleEyesWTF=]. These two [[TheAbridgedSeries Abridgements]] are so insane that it's less a question of ''if'' drugs were involved and more a question of ''how many'' and ''which ones''.
* [[https://derpiboo.ru/tags/artist-colon-badumsquish Badumsquish]], an often NSFW ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fan artist, makes so much weird stuff that his followers tend to react with [[WeirdnessCoupon shock and horror]] when he does something normal. He claims he never touches drugs and that his ideas come from a combination of having suffered brain damage from working around hazardous materials and from working a ''very'' boring job that lets his mind wander. [[https://derpiboo.ru/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&sbq=artist%3Abadumsquish%2C+oc%3Acuddlhu Cuddlhu,]][[note]]A mass of naughty tentacles that infested a pony costume, somehow developed a sentient hive mind, and now just want friendship.[[/note]] one of his most memorable creations, was based on a dream he had while suffering a nearly fatal fever.
* The author of ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' recently revealed his problems with alcohol abuse and the influence it had on his work - and the fact that it is (partially) responsible for his frequent ScheduleSlip.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* The transitions in ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTintin'' are quite trippy, but the movie itself isn't.
* ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'' unsurprisingly became one of the popular "trip movies" during TheSixties. This did nothing to help their reputations, but it sure hasn't ''hurt'' their reputations either.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Coraline}}'' has its disturbing opening sequence, but then stays relatively sane up until the first trip to Otherworld. Then, all hell breaks loose.
* Letís just say that the DisneyAcidSequence trope exists for a reason. There is the "Pink Elephants On Parade" scene in ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}'' or the "Heffalumps and Woozles" scene in ''Disney/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh''.
* ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}''. Cossack-dancing flowers? Water-carrying brooms? Volcanoes spewing pink gases? Ballerina hippos?! A black demon atop a mountain?!? Art Babbitt -- an animator who was responsible for ''dancing mushrooms'' of all things -- stated the only drugs he took were "Ex-Lax and Feenamint", two laxative drugs.
* ''WesternAnimation/FelixTheCatTheMovie'' required a lot of Padding to work at all as an adaptation. (Un)fortunately, a lot of it was very trippy to compensate.
* ''Anime/GhostInTheShell Innocence''. The intro sequence was quite comprehensible with the symbolic, half 3D animation of the construction of a puppet. Later sections, especially the carnival part are awfully trippy and full of meaningless (or maybe not?) detailed diversions for the eye, a lot more enjoyable on drugs.
* ''WesternAnimation/HeavyMetal'' is essentially a series of loosely connected and animated sequences that frequently get extremely trippy.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Igor}}'' can well be seen as this, especially if you listen to their dialogue. The characters themselves look like they had too much crack, too.
* In ''WesternAnimation/JackAndTheCuckooClockHeart'', the visuals used during most of the songs tend to be bizarre and surreal. For example, an origami bird literally picking up a train and taking it up into the sky, both of which are then swallowed by the moon.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas''. The film begins going inside a tree. The opening music number alone shows off some freaky looking characters. Including a clown who can tear his own face off and vanish in a puff of smoke.
* ''WesternAnimation/RaggedyAnnAndAndyAMusicalAdventure'' particularly the scenes with The Greedy a sentient blob of taffy who constantly shape shifts, eats himself, and conjures up various desserts, and the scenes of the appropriately named Looney Land and it's inhabitants.
* ''WesternAnimation/SharkTale'' and its premise is this. The main character's face even looks like it's [[VideoGame/PacManParty a variation of]] Pac-Man on crack.
* ''WesternAnimation/ShinboneAlley'' is the story of a poet reincarnated as a cockroach who falls in love with an alley cat who's the reincarnation of Cleopatra. It was based on some famously trippy writing so this is hardly a surprise.
* ''WesternAnimation/StrangeFrame: Love and Sax'', taking place in a distant future where almost everyone has undergone some degree of genetic or cybernetic enhancement, looks like the mother of all drug trips. It even features a sequence in which main characters Parker and Naia get increasingly high on a succession of {{Fantastic Drug}}s. That said, there's no evidence that any of the animators were high when they made it.
* Creator/JanSvankmajer, a Czech surrealist artist, is known for making [[MindScrew incomprehensible to rather disturbing]] films.
* ''Film/TheThiefAndTheCobbler''. The movie's [[ReCut Recobbled Cut]] is both trippy as hell and ''awesome''. This isn't even talking about the ''chase scene'', the only part of the movie anybody remembers at all. (Don't worry, none of it is ''disturbing'' like ''Music/TheWall'' or anything, it just makes you question the creator's sanity. It's made by the same person who made the Raggedy Ann movie and the Creator/ChuckJones [[YetAnotherChristmasCarol A Christmas Carol]], so you know it's fucked up.)
* Disney's film ''Disney/TheThreeCaballeros'' makes a lot of efforts on this page look positively mundane in comparison.
* ''WesternAnimation/WeAreTheStrange'': A doll boy who lives alone in a forest wants to go get ice cream, but he sees no point unless he has someone to enjoy it with. He befriends a girl who just broke up with an abusive boyfriend and the two of them set off for the ice cream parlor... which happens to be in a spooky town haunted by monsters... and then the doll-boy dances with Mega Man and Pac-Man... and then he plays ''VideoGame/WarioWare'' while inside a HumongousMecha...
* ''[[WesternAnimation/WereBackADinosaursStory We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story]]'' looks as if it had been written and produced on several drug trips.
* Creator/RalphBakshi's ''WesternAnimation/{{Wizards}}''. The last big battle scene involves mutant and demon Nazis fighting war-hardened Elves and Fairies set on a crazy rotoscoped background, and all the while set to jazz rock.
* ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine''. Particularly the Sea of Time/Monsters/Holes/Phrenology/Holes sequences. In the behind-the-scenes portions of the DVD, it's revealed that while the animators never did drugs, they would often return to work a little drunk after having a few too many pints during their lunch break.
** In his book ''Up Periscope Yellow'', [[WordOfGod Al Brodax, the man behind the production]], who wrote or co-wrote most of the non-musical sequences, swears the only time he ever had drugs was in a meeting with John Lennon after he'd finished the script.
** When ''Sub'' became a hit, Disney re-released ''Fantasia,'' billing it as "the ultimate sound and visual experience." When the animators were asked if they did drugs while making it, they would tell "Yes. Pepto-Bismol and Ex-Lax!"
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* Literature/TheBible:
** [[Literature/GoodOmens "Nice fellow, somewhat too fond of strange mushrooms, though"]].
** There is some speculation that the Literature/BookOfRevelation, as well as a few other passages involving visions, were written under the influence of hallucinogens. Some people do object to this characterization of Revelation:
*** Several have pointed out that Revelation makes perfect sense viewed through the lens of the time it was written. Political commentary written in symbolically apocalyptic form was popular in the late 1st and early 2nd centuries, and contemporary scholarship tends to regard it as an allegory for the reign of Nero.
*** Also worth mentioning is the attempts to interrelate Revelation with other bits and pieces of Biblical prophecy, and in particular the Old Testament Book of Daniel. Many Christians, particularly Protestants, see Revelation as being a sort of key that unlocks the mysteries of the rest of Biblical prophecy. This business only really began in the 19th century (although Christians have been finding interesting patterns and suchlike more or less since the canon of the Christian Bible was defined), and eventually led to things like ''LeftBehind'', so...use your judgement. (No pun intended).
** The book of Ezekiel is pretty trippy.
** Christ myth theory proponent John Allegro claims the entire New Testament - and indeed the entire early Christian church - made up this "Jesus" guy while Paul (who was tripping balls himself) was feeding them lots and lots of wicked shrooms. He actually lost his job after he published the book ''The Sacred Mushroom and the Cross''. In fairness to Allegro, however, it should be noted he is to date the only Christ myth theory proponent to present a compelling reason why Paul, Peter or anyone else would make up some other guy who was supposed to be the Messiah, rather than just claiming to be the Messiah themselves.
* Myth/NorseMythology has moments. A notable example is the tale of the death of Baldur. While enjoying the Asgardian pastime of throwing any object at his body and watching them bounce off of him harmlessly, Baldur gets killed from a spear thrown by a ''blind guy'' named Höðr, who received it from Loki. The spear is made out of mistletoe, which is fatal to Baldur because mistletoe was apparently too young to swear an oath to ''not'' be able to kill Baldur. Everyone is upset that their favorite god is dead, so Odin knocks up a giantess named Rindr and they have a son named Vali who grows up in a day and exists for the sole purpose of killing Höðr dead, then promptly does so. Afterwards, they give Baldur a VikingFuneral with all his possessions (including his still living horse) and to lighten the mood, Thor kicks a random passerby dwarf (who was given a name for no clear reason; Litr) into the fire. There are a few different versions with a few minor changes (like that Loki guided the spear) but the majority of it remains the same. Hard to tell if it was mead-induced or if it was just bad storytelling. The story of the birth of Sleipnir (Odin's eight-legged horse) is also a bit odd, in very short Loki, God of Tricksters (and a guy) was kind of bored, so he turned into a mare and had sex with the famous stallion Svaðilfari. Loki, now pregnant, stayed in that form until he (she?) eventually birthed Sleipnir.
* Descriptions of the Bardo in ''The Tibetan Book of the Dead''.
* From a western perspective, Slavic folk tales often sound like this. For example, the [[http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/ftr/chap06.htm Baba Yaga]]. There even weirder versions of this tale.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:New Media]]
* To anyone who has heard some of Alan Maxwell of KIPM's stuff. The Serpent Princess Tiamat is a wonderful Sci-fi story; the God, Illuminator of Our Lives broadcast? Downright out there.
* LetsPlay/{{Raocow}}'s [[LetsPlay various Let's Plays of Super Mario World ROM hacks]]. Most of them can be found on Dailymotion [[http://www.dailymotion.com/raocow here]], though there may be a few videos missing that are probably on Google video. Raocow is also straight-edge, meaning that he simply has a bizarrely appealing thought process. Raocow does comics, too. The art to ''Webcomic/ArtificialTimeXS'' does raise some suspicions.
* The LetsPlay of ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2SpecialEdition''. The game itself [[MindScrew is drugs]].
* Most of Music/Susumu sounds like something straight off amphetamines, but apparently the creators are clean.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pinball]]
* ''Pinball/TimeFantasy'' is {{Pinball}}'s poster child for this trope, with an anthropomorphic snail-like creature meditating contemplatively among a field of mushrooms in a surreal rainbow-colored landscape.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Puppet Shows]]
* ''Series/TheMuppetShow'':
** The show has quite a few screwed up sketches, like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JN5Mqr6tRlw this one]], especially in its first season. Here's a list of other [[http://www.toplessrobot.com/2009/09/the_muppet_shows_10_weirdest_moments.php strange moments]].
** There's also the rejected original pilot for ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' entitled "Sex And Violence" (they may as well dropped the other shoe and called it, "Not For Kids"). Highlights include a convention for horrifying Muppet versions of the Seven Deadly Sins and a very strange early version of the Swedish Chef among other characters.
** Then there's the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Land_of_Gorch Gorch]] sketches for ''Series/SaturdayNightLive''.
** The biography of Creator/JimHenson by Brian Jay Jones says Henson mostly kept to alcohol, maybe smoking a joint or two once in a great while. It also reports that he took LSD once in TheSixties and ''nothing happened''.
* ''OnceUponATime'', (June the 11th, 1934, to be more precise,) in UsefulNotes/{{Sweden}}, a child was born. This wasn't especially uncommon in itself, but it just so happened that this child was named Staffan Westerberg... One day, when he was 41 years, 2 months and 22 days old, (in other words, it was now September the 1st, 1975,) [[ItSeemedLikeAGoodIdeaAtTheTime Staffan became the producer and show host]] of what was ([[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids supposedly]]) a children's show, ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Vilse i Pannkakan, Lost in the Pancake]]''. This show featured finger puppets that Staffan played with, all of them with {{Meaningful Name}}s, like the titular main character, Lost. It also included, amongst many other things, a CorruptCorporateExecutive potato, a {{Hobo|s}}, a firefighter who [[FireMenAreHot gets it together]] with a [[OurAngelsAreDifferent motorized angel]] and, naturally, a moose, [[MindScrew all living on the titular pancake]]. And the show was actually AnAesop about society and politics... These days, [[NightmarefuelStationAttendant Staffan Westerberg]] is more or less [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Sweden's official scapegoat for the psychological problems of the entire 70's generation]].
* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Teletubbies}}'' show makes very little sense. It involves four brightly colored creatures with televisions on their stomachs and antennas on their heads who can't even speak properly except for the words "again" and "tubby custard" and their names. It also has a wide field filled with rabbits who are never addressed and a sun with a baby's face on it. How this wasn't made on drugs is a mystery. Both ''Teletubbies'' and ''In The Night Garden'' are created by a company called Ragdoll Productions Limited, who also created ''Boohbah'' and ''Brum.''
* The puppet music video for Music/TheWiggles ''Point Your Finger and Do the Twist'', as well as the fan edit of the more hilariously creepy acid trip known as "Scary Finger."
* ''Series/WonderShowzen''. Since one of the head writers is the voice actor for [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark Towelie]], this was probably the case.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]

[[folder:Toys]]
* Franchise/{{LEGO}}'s first attempts at constructible action figures, ''{{Toys/Slizers}}'' and ''Toys/RoboRiders'' were admittedly fueled by the kind of abstract imagination-booms you'd expect to see drug users produce, the latter especially: giant robotic motorbikes with goofy faces wielding weapons, whose riders are ''the front wheels'' , which the bikes can launch like missiles to combat an evil virus. In fact, the theme became a failure ''because'' the designers' went so overboard with their ideas, not realizing that kids liked ''Slizers'' due to the story and characters, not for the trippy concept alone. Interestingly, the origin of LEGO's first big action-figure hit, ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'', ''can'' be traced back to medication -- co-creator Christian Faber was taking his medicines to combat a small brain tumor, when he came up with the idea of nano-sized warriors drifting in the ocean in medicine capsules, arriving at the head of a giant robot who's lying sick in the water.

* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia''. History and politics become so much stranger when you imagine the countries as [[MoeAnthropomorphism people]].
* Given the frequent appearance of of "blue mushrooms" in ''Webcomic/CollegeRoomiesFromHell'', and the [[WorldOfWeirdness overall surreal nature]] of the series, it is hard not to think that Maritza Campos has some experience with 'shrooms herself, but at the same time, the artwork and storytelling seem too tight to have been ''produced'' while tripping.
* ''Webcomic/{{Kukuburi}}'' can be summed up as "Whoa."
* ''Webcomic/TheLifeOfNobTMouse'' is a surreal jaunt through a childlike interpretation of quantum physics; written and drawn by a teatotaller and featuring a talking mouse that runs a café.
* ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth'' starts off a [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=4&p=000261 a little wacky]], but then quickly [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=4&p=000615 flies]] [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=4&p=000789 off]] [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=4&p=001259 the]] [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=4&p=001561 deep]] [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=4&p=001715 end]]. Once you realize that everything that happens is [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} fan-suggested]], though, the lack of drugs inherent in the creative process is a little easier to accept.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'':
** Itís a strange case; on one hand it's significantly more "out there" than ''Problem Sleuth'' in terms of how far beyond the impossible it goes, but on the other hand it's much less so in terms of having consistent internal logic and very clear plot progression, TimeyWimeyBall aside (no offence meant to ''PS''). All that logic goes out the window, however, when Jane [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=007611 engages]] [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=007612 Trickster]] [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/trickster.php?s=6&p=007614 Mode]].
** Then there's ''Webcomic/SweetBroAndHellaJeff'', which [[LampshadeHanging even inquires]] as to just how high you even have to be just to do something like that (the line even originated as a riposte to someone inquiring if ''SBAHJ'' had been made on drugs). Much as you'd expect, it employs quite a lot of jokes about stoners ([[MushroomSamba SUDDENLY WEED DREAMS]]).
** Hussie weighs in on this question in general:
-->''"It's hard to underscore enough how ridiculous I and most creators I've talked to find this notion that being high is the wellspring from which all bizarre, absurd, or otherwise creative material must necessarily come from. For the most part, there's a very significant difference between quality work and pot-addled horseshit.''
-->''"It's not that I think all drugs are JUST SO TERRIBLE on principle. But including them as a staple to the creative process is usually a serious detriment to the work in my view.''
-->''"But in looking at your question again, maybe you didn't hold this view anyway. Nonetheless, it's a topic that rears its head now and then."''
* ''Webcomic/PokeyThePenguin'': A [[CutAndPasteComic barely "drawn"]] [[DadaComics surreal comic]] about [[EverythingsBetterWithPenguins penguins]] [[PolarBearsAndPenguins living in the Arctic]], chronicling their adventures which commonly consist of a string on non-sequiturs.
* ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'' presents the "[[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=420 Mythic Slaughterbeast]]" band:
-->'''Faye:''' ... these lyrics read [[HeavyMithril like Tolkien]] [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs on PCP]].\\
'''Dora:''' According to the band's website, massive amounts of both were involved in the recording process.
%%* Go ahead. Try to explain the premise of ''Webcomic/{{Achewood}}'' to anyone who's never heard of it. (Perhaps YOU, the editor, should do just that instead of assigning it as if it was a school task)
%%* [[http://mountaincomics.com/ Mountain Time]] is practically nothing but this trope. See [[http://mountaincomics.com/2010/07/08/almonds/ here]] for a good example of its logic.
* ''Keithiscoolbykeith'' used to be a fine example of a badly-drawn yet compellingly surreal webcomic. Sadly it now seems to have disappeared from the net, making illustration difficult... unless anyone out there cached the damn thing.
* The [[OurFairiesAreDifferent Fae]] Kingdom in ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'' fits this trope pretty well at times. Two words: [[http://www.missmab.com/Comics/Vol_800.php Skydiving Psychology]].
* In the AltText of [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/25p92/ this strip]] of ''WebComic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'', the author claims he gets this question all the time, and that none of the wackiness of Dr. [=McNinja=] is actually the result of mind-altering substances. Except the Dubstep Quartet. That one was [[NotSoAboveItAll totally the result of alcohol]].
* What was going through the head of the creator of ''Webcomic/MassEffect3Generations'', a comic done in entirely blue-purple hues and which featured things like vorcha bats and spider-like quarian husks, remains a mystery. However, the creators of its [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSDGvG17ZWY/ audio drama]] did admit to being stoned while making it.

* [[http://www.alternatehistory.com/discussion/showthread.php?t=234191 Snooki suddenly woke up, and raised her arms. "My pretties, my children." she said in a frightening voice. "Kill them, kill them all so that our species may conquer this world!"]]
* The web series ''WebAnimation/BattleForDreamIsland'', which is apparently a reality series where the contestants are anthropomorphic versions of common everyday household and/or natural objects. And the "[[TheBlank Helvetica]] [[AndIMustScream Scenario]]" from the pilot episode, "Calcium", is grade-A horror.
* Let's see. Website/ChannelAwesome has [[Webvideo/TheNostalgiaCritic a nostalgic reviewer]] that [[Webvideo/{{Kickassia}} led a takeover of a micronation in Nevada]], [[Webvideo/BumReviews a hobo reviewer]] who ''[[StonersAreFunny openly admits]]'' to being on drugs, [[Webvideo/AngryJoe one video game reviewer]] who lives in a space station with a clone army, [[Webvideo/TheSpoonyExperiment another]] who's a clone of his dead Black Lantern true self, [[Webvideo/AtopTheFourthWall a comic book reviewer]] that has Sentai powers and [[Webvideo/DiamandaHagan a crazy butch lesbian tyrant god]] (it took her three weeks to come back from the dead the first time, but she's managed it more than once) with her own nation and an army of cloned minions whose cloning process requires fellatio and who dresses like a female Music/MarilynManson, complete with face paint. The third and second to last two, plus one anime/cartoon reviewer, have evil doppelgangers, and the last one has a good one. Anyone who tunes into this site for the first time is going to guess the creators are on really heavy drugs or are a bunch of uber-dorks. [[spoiler:It's the latter.]]
* Although alcoholic "[[FrothyMugsOfWater grape juice]]" is a recurring gag in the [[WebSerialNovel blog novel]] ''[[http://fartago.blogspot.com Fartago]]'', and although author Tony Caroselli admits to frequently enjoying red wine, he also adamantly and persistently insists he only once tried to write any of it while any drunker than "very slightly buzzed" and found it so impossible to keep track of the dialogue-style of the writing that he had to sleep it off and try again in the morning.
* Matthew Gray Gubler's website [[http://www.matthewgraygubler.com/ Gubler land]] definitely qualifies.
* Webvideo/HonestTrailers has this to say about ''Film/SuperMarioBros'', first asking how much acid the filmmakers took to make [[WidgetSeries an already weird]] [[Videogame/SuperMarioBros1 game]] more surreal, and then concluding they had "all of it" once Goombas dancing are seen.
* An educational short dubbed from Portuguese, entitled ''IslandOfFlowers''. It had such moments as an OverusedRunningGag audio matched to visuals of the Holocaust, describing everything from the perspective of HumansThroughAlienEyes (including explaining what ''water'' is), having a shriek of pain when someone jabbed a model of a human brain, and so on. It was nine minutes of bipolarly nightmarish and hilarious non-sequiturs that vaguely segued into a message about garbage in the last minute or so. [[http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=2855736949121066289 Watch it here]]. At one point it described a History test. The visual for a question about Genghis Khan was a picture of Mozart, and the visual for a question about Mesopotamia was a picture of California. ''This movie was shown as part of the curriculum for a college course on Human Ecology''.
* Kony 2012 - the news article [[http://edition.cnn.com/2012/03/17/world/africa/uganda-viral-video/ here]] says that the director's family denied allegations of being on drugs or alcohol. Though, to be fair, he was seen running through the streets of San Diego in his underwear.
* The crew behind ''WebVideo/LoadingReadyRun'' has often dealt with accusations of drugs being behind some of their videos, despite never having written on a script on anything more than alcohol (and rarely that, especially after the editing process). The crew finds people jumping to the conclusion of drugs over them just naturally being funny a tad annoying, especially after every week for 6 years.
* "Look Around You". The entire series is on Website/YouTube. It [[{{Retraux}} appears to be from the late 70's]], and is a rather odd parody of British educational programming. It's like a slightly retarded Wikipedia session, especially with the jumps between topics like opening new tabs.
%%* {{Cinemassacre}}'s ''MunkyCheez''.
* The Laziest Men On Mars - [[http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/flash/terriblesecret The Terrible Secret of Space]]. It was derived from an IRC prank that the creators were involved in.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQSNhk5ICTI The famous "Double Rainbow" meme]] by Yosemite Bear (real name Paul "Bear" Vasquez). Unlike many other examples on this page, however, it's not because the video is surreal or trippy. It's because a guy sees a double rainbow. Instead of simply looking at it, or maybe taking a picture of it, he ''shoots a shaky video of it and rants and raves about how amazing the phenomenon is, all the while '''crying and moaning orgasmically''', and then he '''posts the video on the Internet'''''.
* It's probably better to say that TimeCube exists ''because'' no drugs were involved.
* Wiki/TheWanderersLibrary runs on this. More than anything else, the goal of the writing is to be just plain weird and different. Goats that sweat butter, computer creation myths, bacterial poetry, and asphalt maintaining wizards are just some of the things you may find.
* The CGI animations of WendyVainity, with their surreal visuals and trippy music.
* WebAnimation/YouTubePoop. In fact one maker answered the question "Did any of your ideas for Poops come from recreational drugs or alcohol?" with a "Yes.".
* Not Website/YouTube, [=YooouuuTuuube=]. Take any video from [=YouTube=] and chuck it [[http://www.yooouuutuuube.com/ here]]. For example: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pAwR6w2TgxY this]] + [=YooouuuTuuube=] = [[http://yooouuutuuube.com/v/?b=1&yt=pAwR6w2TgxY&width=192&height=120&flux=0&direction=rand whooooaa]].
** Come to think of it, that video used in the example by itself also qualifies.
** Turning on "Flux Mode" makes it ''[[UpToEleven even trippier.]]''
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ti1D9t8n0qA This]] remix of [[Music/RebeccaBlack Friday]] + [=YooouuuTuuube=] = [[http://www.yooouuutuuube.com/v/?width=192&height=120&yt=Ti1D9t8n0qA&flux=0&direction=bottom_left this unspeakable horror]]
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPrtQ9AdoM0 Star Drunk]]'' is a work really made on drugs. To be more accurate, it is a short movie (a SpaceOpera parody) which has been written by drunk people and then shot by drunk actors.
* ''Blog/TheBlackLegionOfTheDarkLordSketchMelkor'' qualifies. It's got NoodleIncident after noodle incident, many of which even the members of the cult don't know about, and it's pretty much composed of the members of the cult trying to figure out amongst themselves what Sketch is trying to tell them. Everything that happens MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext.
* Despite some of their outright bizarre ideas, plus [[CloudCuckoolander a habit for randomly bursting into song and screaming]], LetsPlay/HatFilms do ''not'' make their work on drugs. This has led to other members of the LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}} questioning their actions at many points. They ''have'' made videos such as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipV4tT4B-A4&ab_channel=HatFilms "Walrus Appeal"]] on caffeine while suffering from sleep deprivation, having said that, and are not above rare cases of AlcoholInducedIdiocy.
* ''WebVideo/TheUltimateEdChronicles'' in this in spades. Here's the premises of the first four films in the series alone to give an idea of how bizarre it is:
** ''The Rise of Maleficent'': That time [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy Ed, Edd, Eddy,]] [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts Sora, Donald, Goofy]] and [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} NEST joined forces with the Autobots]] to take down Maleficent who has allied herself with the Decepticons because they want to conquer the Earth/make sure Aurora never wakes. Also phones, cars, guns, planes and credit cards exist in fairy tale land.
** ''Legend of the Black Cauldron'': Everyone reunites to stop the Horned King from raising an army of the dead....whose being aided by [[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles the Shredder]] and the Decepticons. [[Film/TheExpendables The Expendables]] show up halfway through and are accompanied by the [[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Ninja Turtles]]. Along the way they break the fourth wall to the point of annoyance and breakfast tacos from Taco Bell show up in a conversation. Also Prydain is simultaneously a desert but also a fantasy world and Creator/JasonStatham kills the Horned King by virtue of being awesome.
** ''Penguins of Madagascar'': The Autobots are shockingly absent in this one but don't worry, they're replaced by the North Wind who have apparently been led this whole time by [[Franchise/DieHard John McClaine]] and [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} the Terminator]]. Oh and did we mention they're trying to stop a talking octopus and a character from ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' whose somehow become the octopus' trainer? Also, the penguins and our heroes somehow know each other despite them not appearing together previously and everyone learns about the power of friendship.
** ''Eds and the Iron Man'': The [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse Marvel version of Al-Qaeda and ISIS]] are being led by [[WesternAnimation/PenguinsOfMadagascar a talking dolphin on a scooter with a robotic eye voiced by the guy from Dr. Horrible]] so he can use Tony Stark's tech to build his "Chrome Claw" and help [[Film/TheBigLebowski The Dude]] take his company. Also apparently the Iron Man suit is a TARDIS it would seem, givin how they can all hang onto it and fit inside it.

[[folder:Other]]
* Areas of mathematics such as Statistics, since the hypothesis of many statistical distributions makes you wonder if Statistics [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs is math on drugs]].
* Comedian Music/BillBailey is eager to point out (in response to TV show pitches along the lines of "It's X, but on acid!") that watching someone on acid is ''boring''.
* Cryptology - the study of how to write and solve codes. The field involves all fields of mathematics, and is very interdisciplinary. Where traditional maths are taught in a linear path of lessons that increase in difficulty, cryptology is like a professional contortionist that requires much much mental flexibility.
* Peanut:
** Lampshaded during one of ventriloquist comedian Creator/JeffDunham's bits, where Peanut accuses him of doing drugs, and Jeff repeatedly denies it. Peanut then suggests he was created on drugs to counter.
-->Peanut: "If that's true how did you come up with meeeeeeee?!"
** In "Controlled Chaos", Peanut suggests that Jeff came up with Jose Jalapeno (On A Steek!) while drunk off his ass. Jeff denies it, but says that that's how he came up with Peanut.
* As Creator/EddieIzzard once said, "People think I'm on drugs, but I'm not, really. Just a little coffee... put me on ''drugs'' it has the ''opposite'' effect! I start going: 'Oh! Pensions! Very sensible. And car insurance, yes...'"
* Creator/AndyKaufman is another example of a 1970s performer whose work, from Foreign Man, to bringing a sleeping bag out on stage and ''taking a nap'', to reading from ''Literature/TheGreatGatsby'', to his various {{worked shoot}}s, to his posthumously published writings, would suggest he was on ''something'' illicit when he conceived them. But since childhood he had been prone to eccentric behavior (he conceived routines such as "Mighty Mouse" then), and his drinking and drug use as a teen hardly figured into his artistic equation. As an adult he was a near-health nut who practiced Transcendental Meditation.
* Almost everything on Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee, particularly the infamous "cocktail tree". Unless you consider alcohol a drug, in which case? It's one helluva drug. Two words: Kwanzaa cake.
* When asked if he had ever smoked marijuana, Music/TomLehrer cheekily replied: "I have never done an illegal substance in my life... and [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial I have never]] [[LogicBomb told a lie]]."
* The Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz. Purportedly written by Paracelsus, supposedly an alchemical text by way of allegory, actually reading it without background makes you wonder what the writer was on.
* Quantum mechanics.
** This is a theory so unutterably strange that one of the creators of the theory, Niels Bohr, has been quoted saying that "those who are not shocked when they first come across quantum theory cannot possibly have understood it." And yet it is the best description of particle physics currently in existence. This is the same theory that says '''anything''' can spontaneously happen (albeit under extremely strict circumstances).
** The true story of how Schrödinger (of Schrödinger's Cat fame) invented quantum physics: he stocked up a cabin in the mountains, which he stocked with enough supplies for several months. After three months of complete isolation, he returned to civilization with complete theories that worked perfectly. Nobody but Schrödinger knows what happened up there in the mountains, and nobody else ever will.
** By extension, String Theory. One criticism of/joke about String Theory is that it really should be possible for the public to differentiate between science and the ramblings of crazy people on park benches.
* Everything made by ''Music/RobZombie'' makes you wonder how he ever came up with it under any kind of sobriety.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Allen Tim Allen]] ''sold'' far more drugs than he ever took.
* Ursula Vernon dodges questions about where she gets the ideas for her painting by saying she did a lot of drugs. (She did, but they didn't give her the ideas.)
* Political cartoonist Joel Barbee made some [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Itfb2tfKuLk pretty bizarre cartoons.]] Looking at them beforehand, you'd probably never guess them being drawn by an old conservative who wasn't on any known drugs.
* [[http://cakewrecks.squarespace.com/home/2009/6/17/kill-it-with-fire-oh-wait-they-already-did.html this]] Classic from Cake Wrecks, or anything else done by Ms. Famulari?
* The German comedian, actor, director, author, and musician Helge Schneider uses non-sequiturs, absurdistical actions and statements, weird behaviour and voices, exaggerations, purposefully bad playing, sheer stupidity and mundanity mixed with rather insightful contents. He stopped taking drugs as his career went upward.
* [[SeriousBusiness As serious as the SAT is for many students]], College Board's [[http://sat.collegeboard.com/register/sat-test-day-simulator Test Day Simulation]] video is really bizarre. Apparently, pencils and snack foods are going to rain from the sky, you will take the test in a room made of cardstock, and old, vintage-looking cartoons will appear in the window.
* What about dreams? They can get pretty funky from time to time. Quite a few entries on this page were inspired by- or were recreations of dreams the author had. Creator/SalvadorDali also induced dream-like hallucinations on himself by going without sleep for extended periods of time, then painted the results.
* Creator/DavidCross has noted that he's offended when people ask him how high he was when he wrote a piece of comedy. He insists that all his comedy comes from hard work, not drugs. Mind you, he doesn't deny using drugs; he simply doesn't depend on drugs for his comedy.
* Bosozoku, a kind of Japanese biker gang/street racing culture make illegal modifications to bikes and cars. In most street racing cultures, this means nitrous oxide, underglow and such. For the Bosozoku, [[http://www.fungur.com/bosozoku-style-cars-pics/ they defy any explanation]].\\
\\
And what they take up to eleven, the Dekotoru culture takes up to twelve: Japanese truckers whose vehicles look like the results of Optimus Prime having a drunken one-night-stand with a pachinko parlor.
* [[EverythingsBetterWithPlatypi The platypus]].
* There's the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Okapi Okapi]], once believed to be a myth, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celestial_eye Celestial Eye goldfish]], and the prehistoric [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hallucigenia Hallucigenia]]. The latter's name means "strange and dream-like".
* The Wachowskis. ''Franchise/TheMatrix'' movies were enjoyably trippy. Then the siblings skipped on their meds and made a scary-ass version of ''Film/SpeedRacer''.
* UsefulNotes/TourDeFrance: So many successful riders have been exposed as using illegal performance-enhancing drugs that many people assume that any winning rider '''must''' be a doper.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMpYQCd9z3Q This video]], perhaps most notorious for appearing during a hacked ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' livestream. A brown CGI... thing walking down a street, while the world's most stereotypical rap song loops endlessly. What ''else'' could it have been on?
* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OI_Wa73XTeQ Bootsy Collins cartoon]]
* Some rather odd American laws seem like either they were made while the writer was drunk, or [[NoodleIncident there's an interesting story behind them]]. Some are:
--> In California, it is illegal to eat oranges in the bathtub.\\
In Tennessee it is illegal to sleep on top of a fridge that's outside.\\
In California, again, it's illegal for an unmanned vehicle to drive faster than 60mph.\\
In Kentucky, it's illegal for dogs to [[HaveAGayOldTime molest]] cats.\\
In Connecticut, it's illegal for bicyclists to go faster than 65mph.\\
In Vermont, it's illegal to whistle while underwater.\\
You may not cross Minnesota state lines with a duck on your head.
