It’s almost time to get another round of Snoop Dogg in the Super Bowl. The “Drop It Like It’s Hot” rapper is no stranger to the biggest show in football. Last year he joined an iconic group of musicians including Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, Eminem, and 50 Cent for the halftime show. Although it seemed like Snoop Dogg had accomplished just about everything in his career, the rapper was thrilled to cross the Super Bowl halftime show off his list.
Before the performance, Snoop shared how the halftime show was a “dream come true,” according to Billboard. Snoop said: “I’m still thinking I’m in a dream because I can’t believe they let a real hip-hop artist grace the stage at an NFL Super Bowl. We’re just going to wait for that moment.” and put together something that’s spectacular, and do what we’re known for and add to the legacy.” The halftime show performance was incredible as each musician sang a round of his greatest hits. The show even had viewers debating whether it was the greatest halftime performance of all time.
Of course, Snoop had a lot to do with making the performance iconic. From singing their collaboration “The Next Episode” to walking a cripple on stage… viewers couldn’t get enough. Luckily for fans, they’ll get another chance to see Snoop on their Super Bowl screen, but this time as part of a commercial. Accompanied by one of his hit songs, the rapper will star in Skechers’ next Super Bowl ad.
Who I am? (What’s my name?) will be in the Snoop Dogg commercial
Prepare to rock the star-studded Skechers 2023 Super Bowl commercial because it features one of Snoop Dogg’s biggest hits. Those who view the commercial on the big day will hear the iconic song, “Who am I (what’s my name)?” playing in the background. Fans’ attention will be on the screen as the lyrics “Snoop Doggy, Dogg (yeah, yeah, yeah) / Snoop Doggy, Dogg (the bomb)” play. Since Snoop stars in the ad, it seemed fitting to have one of his songs as the backing track.
The song is just one part of the exciting commercial as Snoop travels from place to place in his slip-on Skechers. At one point, the rapper is even on the football field with former NFL star Tony Romo. In the scene, Romo is jokingly part of a youth soccer club and appears to be too strong for the other players. Snoop says to Romo, “Are you sure you’re eight?” Playing on humor, Romo replies, “I’m nine years old, actually.” Romo isn’t the only star in the commercial, as Snoop’s longtime friend Martha Stewart makes a brief appearance. Snoop and Stewart play president and vice president while the rapper sits in the oval office. Stewart then asks the rapper how she can take on so many roles. Snoop responds: “Skechers, baby.

He said: “@skechers on vacation with me every step of the way.” Due to the rapper’s relationship with the brand, it was obvious that they had to include him in the commercial, and Snoop was more than happy to oblige.

Howie Long, Tony Romo, and Martha Stewart, who appear in the commercial, also have associations with the brand.
