Iconic rapper Snoop Dogg really likes vampire drama True Blood, or at the very least, one of the show’s main characters Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin).
Evidence of Snoop’s True Blood-fanboyism can overwhelmingly be found in the music video “Oh Sookie” he produced and subsequently uploaded to YouTube to promote the show for HBO.
It is everything you’d think it would be, and probably even a little bit more.
Check out the video embedded below and then share your Vampire-Hip-Hop puns in the comment section please.
The video begins with Snoop pulling up to Merlotte’s in a tricked-out Cadillac with a personalized California license plate that reads “TRU PIMP.” He comes bearing gifts like “Tru Nutz” and proceeds to rap amongst a montage of True Blood clips and shots of Sookie look-a-like dancers.
And although it looks like HBO is behind this pop cultural gem, I really believe Snoop Dogg watches and enjoys the show.
The lyrics have numerous references to the show, such as Snoop recommending a Gin and Juice at Merlotte’s Bar and Grill; Sam being a shape-shifter (he calls him a ‘bitch’), and even suggestions for how Sookie could discretely hook up with him.
For instance, the chorus:
Oh Sookie, Let me get in your head.
Oh Sookie, We can lay in the bed.
Oh Sookie, Choose a player like me
…We can do it in the daytime, Bill won’t know a thing.
But while Sookie definitely takes the spotlight, Snoop is not shy about “serenading” other ridiculously attractive female characters: “Bring a friend. Matter of fact, bring your best friend: Tara. I got some real eggs for her to eat. And these eggs come with a whole lot of cheese and greens… ya dig?”
