AceShowbiz - Snoop Dogg has pranked the Internet with his recent announcement. Just days after making headlines for declaring that he quit smoking, the "Day Shift" actor turned back to social media to promote his partnership with smokeless fire pit, Solo Stove.
On Monday, November 20, the 52-year-old emcee unleashed an ad for the brand with the caption, "I'm done with smoke. I'm going smokeless with @solostove. #ad." Meanwhile, in a press release, he said, "I love a good fire outside but the smoke was too much. Solo Stove fixed fire and took out the smoke. They changed the game and now I'm excited to spread the love and stay warm with my friends and family."
Instead of getting angry, fans praised Snoop for his marketing strategy. "Snoop is a genius," one person gushed, with another echoing, "MARKETING GENIUS." A third commented, "Unc doing things only funny uncs would do."
Someone else called Snoop "legend," while a different individual gushed, "GORILLA. MARKETING AT ITS FINEST! I'm buying one just because of the way you lead us too this !!" The other person opined, "had us fooled thought it was true i thought no can't be."
Snoop made his initial "giving up smoke" announcement on November 16. He uploaded a black-and-white photo of him with both of his hands in front of his mouth. Next to it, a message read, "After much consideration and conversation with my family, I've decided to give up smoke. Please respect my privacy at this time." Along with the snap, he stressed in the caption of the post, "I'm giving up smoke."
Snoop's post has inspired Coi Leray and Meek Mill to follow in his footsteps. Coi uploaded a screenshot of Snoop's announcement and gave her response by writing, "Ight ima start Monday. Let's do this!"
In a follow-up Story, the "Baby Don't Hurt Me" raptress offered details of when she will start. Over a black screen, she wrote, "Ima quit after Thanksgiving," adding gifs of a chicken and a sign that read, "No Smoking."
Meek, meanwhile, revealed his decision to stop smoking on X (formerly Twitter). In a tweet published earlier that day, he penned, "Ima go to Dubai and completely stop smoking … ima follow snoop."
