Nardwuar vs. Snoop Lion (2013)
Any of the encounters Nardwuar has had with Snoop over the years are worth watching. Initially, Snoop made a habit of stealing the props Nardwuar would bring to spur conversation (a Whispers record, a Redd Foxx doll), prompting Nardwuar to start presenting the items as gifts to his guests instead. But the two have developed quite a hilarious rapport, to the point that Snoop now refers to Nardwuar as “my Howard Cosell.”
