A True G, Snoop Dogg Backs MetroPCS Samsung Indulge Launch


When your company is launching its first 4G smartphone, it couldn’t hurt to have an extra G backing the endeavor, so MetroPCS turned to one of the original Gs, Snoop Dogg, to help promote the launch of the Samsung Indulge. For the occasion, Snoop will now be known as the D-O-Quadruple G. That’s right Snoop Dogggg. Four Gs right there. It’s a wonder no one thought of this before.

Along with a chance to win a meeting with Snoop, a special series of videos will be made available featuring such icons as the man with the golden voice, Ted Williams. You can check out a sampling below or the rest over at MetroPCS YouTube page. Full press release after the video.
