*Snoop Dogg gets his full “True Blood” on in “Oh Sookie,” the rap star’s musical and video ode to the HBO show’s mind-reading, vampire loving lead character, Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin).
In the video, revealed Thursday at HBO.com, Snoop sports a five-finger “Sookie” ring while rapping his best pick-up lines to the waitress.
“We’ll do it in the daytime / Bill won’t know a thing,” Snoop raps in the hook. He says Sookie’s best friend Tara can join the party as well, even making reference to her newly-deceased boyfriend Eggs. “Bring your best friend, Tara / I got some real Eggs for her to eat,” he rhymes.
The video opens with Snoop pulling into Bon Temps in his tricked-out Snoopmobile, complete with a “Tru Pimp” license plate, cloves of garlic hanging from the rearview mirror and the show’s theme song “Bad Things” on the stereo.
Wearing various outfits featuring the color red, he urges Sookie to come close because, unlike so many of the creatures in the swampy town, “I’m the dog that don’t bite.”
The g-funk tune bounces along as Snoop drops references to Sookie’s telepathy and even offers to buy her a gin and juice at the restaurant where she works, Merlotte’s diner. “Bill ain’t for real, he ain’t true blood / Snoop is a G, I smoke true bud / Wanna be a vampire, gotta listen up / I hit you with the glamour,” he raps while hanging outside Merlotte’s in a pimp fur and later showing off his own TB product, a package of “True Nutz.”
