Snoop Dogg is an amazing artist. Not only has he given us some of the most beloved rap albums of all time, he apparently has good taste in television.
And has requested repeatedly to appear on True Blood, HBO’s breakout hit about the lives of vampires, fairies, and everything in between. Can you imagine the level of post-modernism that would be reached if there were a television show where a girl had to divide her love between vampires, werewolves, and Snoop Dogg?
“Sookeh. You are mahne. I care about you.”
*cue Snoop Dogg pulling up in a Cadillac*
“Yo, Sookie. Why don’t you hop in, take a hit, and roll with your dog?”
And out of the woods, there are the envious stares of wood nymphs, werewolves, and every kind of supernatural creature. They could have Eric record a rap album to try to win Sookie’s affections, and it’d be all kinds of clusterfucky. Anyway, creator Alan Ball has reportedly turned down Snoop Dogg’s multiple advances to appear on the series, saying that it’d break the illusion of Bon Temps. And I completely agree. But that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be ridiculously cringe-worthy and watchable if they gave Snoop Dogg a completely arbitrary walk-on part. Like Nigel, Alabama’s king vampire pimp.
I’d watch like a fiend.
