How Snoop Dogg got Matthew McConaughey high
LOS ANGELES - Snoop Dogg had Matthew McConaughey feeling “alright, alright, alright” on the set of their movie Beach Bum.
Matthew McConaughey told Jimmy Kimmel about the time Snoop replaced his prop weed for real weed.
“I’m not quite sure what we did that night. There was a scene where I’m going to Snoop’s [character Marlon] because I’ve got writers block and Snoop has the magic weed. So I went to the prop man to make sure I have the prop weed, which is like crushed oregano.So we get in the scene, it’s about a six-minute scene. We pass back and forth and all of sudden at the end he goes, “Yo Moondog [my character’s name], that ain’t prop weed, that’s Snoop Weed. And I was like, “Oh you son of a gun.” The next nine hours were a lot of fun but I don’t think we used one word in the English language.”
It only seems fitting considering the movie is from the man behind Spring Breakers, Harmony Korine. Harmony Korine has hopes that this movie will actually get you high as well when it debuts this fall.
“It’s a comedy with Matthew McConaughey and Snoop Dogg, about somewhat depressive marijuana smokers, in the spirit of Cheech & Chong…I would very much like to have the film, when it’s released, be shown in rooms that spread curls of marijuana [smoke]. It is possible in some states, such as California, that have legalized this drug for [medical use]. We already have thirty rooms that have accepted.” Will you be attending?
