Halo: Reach, the latest iteration in the Halo franchise, was released yesterday, and some surprising inclusions to the legions of nerds already playing online are hip-hop artists Snoop Dogg and LL Cool J.
The two filmed a Funnyordie.com video of their game along with Wayne Newton – a.k.a. Mr. Las Vegas – and Chuck actor Zachary Levi, which provided at least one major revelation: Celebrities and seminal gangster rappers are just as infantile while playing video games as the rest of us.
Although Snoop seems to be the better player (he’s got the build of a gamer, after all), LL Cool J utters what probably should have been the tagline of the game: “Halo: Reach: You can’t ‘Reach’ me, baby.” Snoop, who plays under the handle “thedoggfather,”pays him back with an obscene in-game celebratory gesture. Way to keep it classy, Snoop.
Check out their gaming skills in the semi-NSFW video after the jump.
