Snoop spent an hour on stream where he appeared to play SOS, running along with teammates to gather treasure and shoot guns. SOS players can team up or work against each other to find a hidden relic, eventually needing to reach an extraction point to leave the island with the loot.
For a while, it looked like Snoop was playing the game. He grabbed items, ran with his team, and had conversations about pineapple rum. Snoop then demonstrated his killer ability to play video games while smoking a blunt (which violates Twitch TOS) and looking down to read the ingredients that go into his brand of premium plant nutrients. He also does a rap about papayas and killing demons with knives.
Audience reaction was split between viewers who were amused and mostly others who presumably expected authentic gameplay.
“Is he really pretending to play?” one viewer asked. “Lame.”
“He so obviously doesn’t care about this game,” another added.
Some commenters were quick to compare the “fail” with Snoop’s visit to the Electronic Games Expo in 2016, where he played the online shooter Battlefield 1 alongside Jamie Foxx and Zac Efron. Other responses to the SOS stream were more forgiving, laughing at the spectacle of it.
SOS developers Outpost Games have not responded yet, perhaps they are just sending out an S.O.S. to recover.
