Snoop Lion Lights Up a Blunt and Offers Life Advice on One Life to Live

And in the year 2013, this happened:

That's Snoop Lion (né Dogg) smoking a blunt and doling out life advice on the venerable soap opera One Life to Live. If you're wondering what the stay-at-home parents of America thought when they tucked their toddlers in for an afternoon nap, turned on their TVs, and saw that, the answer is that they didn't: These days One Life to Live is a Web-only series, and I wouldn't be surprised if this scene gets more attention from Snoop fans than from soap fans. Which, I suppose, just makes it weirder—especially since the series' untelevised status means the guest star can say "shit" without attracting the anger of the FCC:

    wtf? No laugh track? No Audience groans? How am I supposed to know if this is funny...or serious?

    Ha! So I am not the only one.

    The instant I hear a laugh track I turn off the TV or change the channel, usually while muttering "Fuck you too".

    If you have to indicate to the audience what's funny using canned laughter, you have a problem.

    These days One Life to Live is a Web-only series, and I wouldn't be surprised if this scene gets more attention from Snoop fans than from soap fans.

    Which is unsurprising as Calvin Broadus has made multiple appearances on One Life and has said that it is one of his favorite shows.

    I'm surprised he didn't do a drive-by on ABC when they cancelled it in favor of...General Hospital.

    Jesse - one minor point to correct your good joke re: Lion/Dogg. It should be ne (with accent - can't do that here). The second "e" on most "nee" indicates that the verb is the feminine - which is why it is ubiquitous since its use describes maiden names. At least that's what I remember from my high school french.

    Strictly speaking, it shouldn't be either, since Dogg wasn't his name at birth. But I take your point & will remove the extra e.

    I refuse to call him by his new name. He'll always be the S N double O P D O double G to me
