Iacocca Teams With Snoop Dogg in New Ads (WaPo via Drudge)
Former Chrysler Corp. chairman Lee Iacocca and Snoop Dogg appear together in Chrysler Group’s latest ads for its employee-pricing program, a duo guaranteed to raise some eyebrows.
The 80-year-old Iacocca and Snoop Dogg, who made his name rapping about sex and marijuana, appear as golf buddies in the ad, scheduled to begin airing Saturday. Snoop Dogg wears an argyle sweater vest, while Iacocca dons a pastel plaid hat.
At the end of the TV spot, Snoop Dogg says: “If the ride is more fly, then you must buy.” Iacocca responds: “That’s what I hear.”
I heard that too. There had been talk of a Cadillac production model called the “Snoop de Ville,” but I guess Snoop Dogg is a Mopar kind of guy.
