Before the weekend, the world-famous rapper Snoop Dogg (52), whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., shared a surprising update with his followers on social media.
“I’m going to stop smoking.”
Snoop Dogg is perhaps the world’s most famous weed smoker and has previously been banned from Norway after being drugged at the airport in Kristiansand in 2012.
The smoke stumping was covered by Norwegian newspapers, such as VG, NRK and TV 2, as well as international ones, and the news received a lot of attention. The rap artist has also used marijuana actively in song lyrics and profiling of his own artist career. According to the music magazine Rolling Stone, the news led to “panic among marijuana smokers in fear of losing their leader”.
Now it turns out that it was all a stunt and that the artist fooled “everyone”, writes USA Today.
“I love a good fire outside, but it’s too much with all the smoke. Solo Stove fixed the fire and removed the smoke. They changed the rules of the game, and now I’m looking forward to spreading the love and staying warm with my friends and family, says Snoop Dogg in a press release, according to the American media.
The artist’s Instagram and Twitter posts were therefore a stunt in connection with an advertising campaign for fire pans.
