Footage of Snoop Dogg making a series of funny mistakes while trying to solve puzzles Celebrity Wheel of Fortune resurfaced on Twitter and went viral.
The veteran rapper, whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., appeared on the celebrity version of the popular game show in an episode that aired last September alongside comedian Amanda Seales and filmmaker Mark Duplass.
Snoop’s appearance on the show caused laughter among viewers and even left presenter Pat Sajak with stitches as he made several unsuccessful attempts at solving word puzzles – instead of providing answers that left viewers scratching their heads.
In what have been cited as the highlights of his numerous wrong guesses, Snoop was attempting to solve a puzzle during a rapid-fire round when he saw the arrangement “BA_ _NG _ _O_N _ _” under the title “What are you doing?”.
“Bake onions?” guessed Snoop, instead of “baking brownies.”
“Martha will be disappointed,” Duplass said of Snoop’s close friendship with Martha Stewart. “Martha will be upset.”
Things didn’t fare much better for the ‘Gin and Juice’ hitmaker, who surmised that another word puzzle should be ‘swallow the knot’ instead of ‘sweeten the pot’ and ‘airport teacher’ instead of ‘acting teacher’. “
Back then, Sajak was seen laughing after Snoop guessed “toilet atlas” instead of the correct answer “talented artist” in the “person” category.
filming of Snoop’s time on the show was revived this week on the popular @historyinmemes Twitter account, quickly getting users of the platform to share their amusement at the star’s less-than-stellar performance.
“I love how he reacts like he missed it every time he doesn’t even say proper sentences,” said one viewer tweeted.
“This is the funniest shit I’ve seen all day… my husband said ‘airport teacher,'” another person wrote, as dozens of viewers expressed their amusement at the response.
“Snoop had to be high before he got on the wheel of fortune,” one Twitter user said of the well-known marijuana enthusiast.
“Man SNOOP funny as hell,” commented another, echoing similar sentiments shared by a number of the rapper’s fans.
“Lol Snoop beat the game of life a long time ago, my buddy just doing side quests.” called Singer-songwriter ELHAE in reaction to the footage.
While Snoop, 51, was struggling with a series of puzzles, he managed one when he correctly typed a “Rhyme Time” clue: “Sun’s out, buns out.”
Several over the years wheel of fortune Clips have gone viral due to contestant mistakes or the show’s strict rules denying a player a bonus prize win.
In March 2022, Sajak defended other contestants who were taunted on social media for struggling to solve a puzzle.
Sajak wrote on Twitter: “It always pains me when nice people come onto our show to play a game and win some money and maybe fulfill a lifelong dream and then get ridiculed online when they make a mistake or something goes wrong.”
Sajak urged those commenting on the viral moment to “have a little heart,” saying finding humor in the moment is different than relentlessly mocking players.
“A good-natured laugh is one thing,” he wrote in his lengthy Twitter thread. “Damn, they were laughing at themselves. But hey, loosen them up a bit. If you’re not there, you have no idea how different it is in the studio.
“I have fun with players and occasionally tease them, but when something goes wrong I sympathize with them and try to heal the wounds on and off camera. So, yes, it was an oddly entertaining puzzle and it’s okay to laugh at the situation, but a little heart.
“After all, you could be there one day. And no one wants to be hip on Twitter,” he said.
