I know “selling out” is just a concept people who aren’t famous made up to shame those who are, but: WTF SNOOP DOGG. Actually, no, he’s going by his real name, Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr., from now on because Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr. is the name of someone who would eat Hot Pockets, the company that Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr. is now shilling for in the form of a promotional video called “Pocket Like It’s Hot.”
The irresistibly hot music video to end all music videos — “Pocket Like It’s Hot”, featuring Snoop, DeStorm Power, Andy Milonakis, Herbie Hot Pockets [Ed note: THE Herbie Hot Pockets?!?], and WWE Superstar Brodus Clay, brought to you by HOT POCKETS brand sandwiches. (Via)
Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr. has been doing this kind of shameless crap for years now, and yet, his popularity has never waned. People still love him (clearly no one remembers Malice n Wonderland), so it’s only a matter of time before other marketing cronies pick up on this song-turned-food jingle idea. I can see it now: “A Nesquik One, While He’s Away,” “All of the Hellmann’s Lite Mayonnaise,” and “Deeez Nuuuty Gourmet,” storming up the charts. Weird Al’s going to be SO pissed when someone gets to “Empanada State of Mind” before him.
