Dogg, Snoop — Rapper Snoop Dogg, who once crooned the classic Chronic line “1-8-7 with my d*ck in your mouth” is encouraging fans to put something else in their mouths: Hot Pockets. D-O-double-G has recorded a promotional video for the microwaveable snacks called — wait for it — “Pocket Like It’s Hot.” Yes, seriously. May the sommelier recommend pairing this with Dr. Dre’s similarly cash-grabbing Dr. Pepper commercial for dinner tonight?
