The true winner of the Games
Anyone who’s seen Snoop Dogg narrate David Attenborough’s Planet Earth can testify that the rapper has a natural gift when it comes to off-hand commentary. Now, Snoop and comedian Kevin Hart have joined forces to offer an alternative take on the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Games – and it’s comedy gold.
The special is part of a new video commission by NBC titled Olympic Highlights With Kevin Hart and Snoop Dogg, and sees the pair watch out-of-context clips from the Games, while giving top tier commentary.
The latest clip – which has since gone viral – sees the pair comment on the equestrian dressage competition. “Horses. I like this. This is equestrian,” says Snoop Dogg, “Oh, the horse crip-walking, cuh! You see that? On the set! That’s gangsta as a motherfucker.”
After watching more of the equestrian sport, he added: “Aw man, this horse is off the chain! I gotta get this motherfucker in a video!”
“I demand for a horse to get the respect that they deserve and the same bragging rights as the jockey,” Hart added. “You don’t think a horse want to brag? I want to brag too bitch, look at what I got. Get back to the stall and look at all your naked-neck asses, they got nothing! Look at me over here, shinin’ on y’all.”
Unsurprisingly, the clip proved to be a huge hit online, with one person tweeting: “Snoop said the horse was Crip Walking and I can’t unsee it.”
“Snoop Dogg is a perfect sports commentator,” said a Twitter user, while another declared it “the best thing to happen to the Olympics”.
In other Games-related news, a leaked document detailing the planning of the Tokyo Olympics revealed that Lady Gaga was originally meant to feature in the Opening Ceremony – dressed as Nintendo’s Mario.
While the plans never made it to fruition, Gaga did, however, appear at the Games in doppelgänger form. Eagle-eyed fans spotted a striking resemblance between Jordan’s Julyana Al-Sadeq, who was competing in the women’s taekwondo competition, and Gaga herself.
