Well this really is ‘far out’, but several websites have just reported on an interview done on Post Mortem with director Tom McLoughlin who directed Friday the 13th: Jason Lives, where McLoughlin mentions how a film where Jason Voorhees meets Cheech and Chong was briefly considered. Said McLoughlin:
“I was asked by producer Frank Mancuso Jr. if I had a pitch for a potential sequels. I said, ‘You know what? You guys own Cheech and Chong. What if we do Cheech and Chong-meets-Jason? They’re like camp counselors or something. It’s like, ‘Hey, man, I saw Jason out there.’ ‘No, man, that’s a myth.’ But he said, ‘You know what? No.”
However, McLoughlin did pitch Mancuso another idea in which Jason met Freddy Kruger, and Mancuso apparently said to him:
“Well, we’re going to try and see if we can work something out.”
Can a Jason Voorhees vs. Cheech and Chong have worked? Probably not in my opinion, though I’ve always thought that Friday The 13th: Part 3’s pair of dopeheads named Chuck and Chili were inspired by Cheech and Chong.
