Who smokes out of pineapples under the sea? Snoop! Dogg! Squarepants!
On Wednesday morning, Paramount Pictures released its new trailer for the third Spongebob Squarepants film, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge On The Run. In it, you can catch a brief glimpse of yours truly, Snoop Dogg, rocking a gold lion medallion, icy fingers, and a silky three-piece suit reminiscent of a funky Colonel Sanders.
Although the Doggystyle rapper has never been shy about featuring bikinis or bottoms during his live shows, what, exactly, is Snoop doing in Bikini Bottom? We’re not sure. No one’s sure. Snoop will join a cast of other celebrity guest stars such as the “wise sage” Keanu Reeves, Reggie Watts, and Awkwafina, all with secret, undisclosed roles in Sponge On The Run.
This also isn’t the first time Snoopzilla crossed paths with the Spongebob franchise. Last June, Sports Center tweeted that Snoop attended Game 4 of the NBA finals sporting some pristine Spongebob bling.

While we don’t know how Snoop’s contribution to the movie will ultimately play out, we do know the film’s basic premise: King Neptune, the ruler of the high seas, kidnaps Spongebob’s pet snail, Gary. Bikini Bottom’s lovable village idiot is left with no choice but to team up with his equally-lovable-but-somehow-more-idiotic homie, Patrick Star, to storm the lost city of Atlantis and save Gary.
But what does Neptune want with a humble, harmless snail? And can Spongebob and Patrick rescue Gary on their own? Or will they only outwit the King of the Sea with a little help from the King of the MFin' West Coast? I guess we’ll all find out when the movie officially drops on May 22.
Oh, and if you’re wondering whether MERRY JANE will be at the premiere blazing a Krabby fatty, the answer is: Aye-aye, captain!
