Year: 2008

Snoop Dogg is something of a minor commercial whore. Over the years he's lent his image and music to Nike, Pepsi, Adidas, Chrysler, Orange Mobile, Orbit gum, and, of course, St. Ides. He's not shy about branding, and he's seemingly willing to indulge himself in whatever bizarre or hilarious scenario ad makers think up for him. But none of them come close to the level of weirdness on display in this commercial for the German cell provider Vybemobil. A fat guy sitting on the floor looks at a turtle that is disguised as an island. He pulls out his phone and begins to dial a number. But before he can finish, Snoop emerges from his refrigerator dressed as German pop singer Roy Black and proceeds to croon his hit song "Schön Ist Es auf der Welt zu Sein."
