Snoop Dogg (Calvin Broadus) and Richard Speight, Jr, the Pepsi Max Driver, have got together to provide a new rendition of the classic holiday tale, The Christmas Story. The pair sit in front of a log fire with the Christmas carol “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” playing in the background. Snoop reads his own rendition of “Twas The Night Before Christmas”, using his fingerprints to get Pepsi Max and Santa working together on the musical future of young Calvin.

Twas the night before Christmas
When all through the house
Not a creature was stirring
Not even a mouse.
The whole world was just chillin’
Waiting on Santa Claus
Except for our Jewish friends
And to them I say Mazel Tof!
Santa delivered gifts that night
Even down in the hood
But he was tired of warm milk
and chocolate chip cookies.
But as we say it was still all good.
He then dropped into a crib
on the East side of the track
Santa popped up the chimney
and saw a cold Pepsi Max!
Santa said $#^#*! Yeah!
I’m hooking these fools up
So he unloaded some gifts
and sipped Pepsi Max from his cup
That very next morning
little Calvin ran down to the tree
He saw two turntables and a microphone
and three beautiful babes…
