Careful listeners may recall that during our Wonder Showzen interview, the creators of that show discussed working on Doggie Fizzle Televizzle, Snoop Dogg’s short-lived MTV sketch comedy series. Besides hilariously recalling Snoop’s “real name” (Snoople P. Doggsworth, DDS), they shared the story of how they tricked Snoop into being on their album: one of them told Snoop it was his birthday. This lead directly to the only words Snoop ever spoke to him.
Snoop pointed to the sweater the Wonder Showzen fellah was wearing, and uttered the simple (but now classic) phrase: “Birthday Sweater.”
My birthday is coming up, and my mom got me a nice, sky blue cashmere v-neck sweater. And all I can think of is Snoop pointing at me and saying, “Birthday Sweater.”
And every time I think of it, I laugh uproariously to myself.
