New Snoop Lion video takes on Pokemon

4,990 views 0 comments

Retro gaming has provided the visual inspiration for the Get Away, the new video from Snoop Lion (the stage name for rapper Snoop Dogg’s reggae material), featuring Angela Hunte and produced by Major Lazer. The video starts with Snoop roaming a Pokemon-inspired overworld with a neat Super Game Boy-style border, before encountering Major Lazer. The two have a battle, before teaming up for a shoot-’em-up sequence against a giant stereo with what appears to be eyes for speakers. A little strange for sure, but a fun example of how retro gaming has become a part of our wider cultural awareness.
