A famous film star comes to Bayside to shoot an anti-drug public service announcement. The gang are enchanted by him, but when they go to a party at his house, they discover he is a hypocrite.
Did You Know?
A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez) and Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) reference the drug related deaths of Len Bias and John Belushi. Bias died on June 19, 1986, two days after being drafted with the second overall selection in the annual NBA draft. Belushi died on March 5, 1982. Bias' death was linked to cocaine while Belushi succumbed to a speedball, a concoction involving cocaine and heroin. See more
In the final scene, the gang is recording the end of the commercial. Zack's point to the camera is not in sync with the others. A few moments later, when they look at the tape, all three points are in sync. As well as this, Brandon Tartikoff's hand actions are different when filming compared to the recorded version, and when shooting, the gang enter later than in the recorded version, where Zack is in shot even before Tartikoff.

In one word, would I use dope? Nope.
These kids are right. Drugs will your hurt your mind, your body and your life. Hi, I'm Brandon Tartikoff, chairman of NBC Entertainment, and I've got a hit idea for the new fall season: don't do drugs.
There's no hope with dope!
