Snoop Dogg is still making cringy videos with the NHL

A few weeks ago Snoop Dogg began congratulating all of the teams who clinched a playoff spot in a video on the NHL’s Instagram. It was random to say the least, and was the beginning of an exhilarating partnership between him and the NHL. 

I’m not ANGRY about the Snoop Dogg partnership like some people were but we can all agree that it’s one of the oddest things ever to see, right? Who are they trying to target with these videos? They can’t be trying to appeal to the average hockey fan, can they?

If you haven’t watched one of these videos, see below.

The deal started out with Snoop congratulating all the teams who clinched a playoff spot. THEN he started giving history lessons on different trophies in the NHL. AND NOW he has a full on video series on Youtube called Hockey 101 where he teaches people about game rules.

Don’t know what icing is? Fear not, Snoop will teach you!

Am I the only one that finds these extremely cringy? Are people actually learning from this video? Is the NHL just purposely doing this so we can talk shit about them giving them more views? I can’t be the only one that feels this way. For me, the worst parts about the video are either the lame visual effects, or the fact that Snoop refers to himself as the Professor of Pucks, 99+2 a.k.a The Greater One, and Dogg Cherry.

If you’ve ever seen Snoop D-O-double-G skate on ice before, you might want to re-think getting hockey lessons from him. In case you’re wondering, the other episodes are about hockey slang, the Stanley Cup, and penalties.

    The videos are hilarious if you’re a fan of Snoop Dogg or new to hockey. If you read the comments on the videos, they are littered with racism from old white men saying the “thug stuff” can stay in the NBA and NFL. Thug is the PC version of the N word now.

    When Bettman and Daly sit in the nhl offices and try to come up with plans to make hockey more appealing to young Americans, this is what they come up with! I think it’s hilarious and sad all at the same time

    Put up or shut up, Chris the Intern. Until you do something this funny Dogg Cherry owns more comedy props than you.

    Or maybe you (and others here) just need a sense of humour. There’s nothing “cringy” about these clips.

    I never knew there were so many racists here! Bigotry of low expectations in action, folks. Facts: Snoop Dogg is a convicted felon. His rap sheet is very, very long. He’s a former gang member. He’s produced porn movies. He expresses hateful and violent thoughts and opinions on a semi-regular basis.

    And so it goes. No one bats an eye, because he is black. If he was white, with this kind of history, he would never in 1,488 years be picked to be an NHL spokesperson. But for a black person, it’s just what? Par for the course? It’s just “their culture”? It’s just how black people are? Lol. We are living in a clown world.
