New Hulu show lets you smoke weed with Snoop Dogg in VR | UNLIMITED | CMU

Snoop Dogg

You may be wondering if virtual reality is really the new frontier in visual media, or just a novelty doomed to fail. Well, wonder no more, because now you can smoke weed with Snoop Dogg in VR. I think that clearly confirms it for you.

The rapper appears in a new choose-your-own-adventure style VR comedy show created by Hulu, ‘Door #1’. The show is set at a high school reunion, in which the viewer plays the role of ‘Alex’. Joined by a cast including Ravi Patel, Steve Little, Sarah Baker and Missi Pyle, Alex has to make decisions about where the story goes. One of those decisions will lead you to share a joint with Snoop in the toilet.

“Mainly what we were focussed on when we were writing it was thinking about situations in which you’d either be super uncomfortable, or that you’ve always wanted to exist in”, says writer and director Nora Kirkpatrick. “So, you climb the gym rope, you’re in the middle of a twerking dance circle, you make out with a hermit, you get high with the janitor, and then go to space”.

Hulu VR users can step into all of those situations right now. For everyone else, here’s a boring old 2D trailer:
