Viewers go wild over a BIZARRE detail in Snoop Dogg’s Menulog advert

Food delivery service Menulog launched its latest advertising campaign with American hip hop star Snoop Dogg last month.

The lighthearted ad shows the Drop It Like It’s Hot hitmaker, 48, rapping about ordering ‘tacos to the château’ and ‘chicken wings to the crib’ on the Menulog app.

While the public reception has been mostly positive, some viewers have been left baffled by a bizarre detail about the advert.

While the TV spot was clearly tongue in cheek, Menulog included a disclaimer at the bottom of the screen clarifying that Snoop was a ‘paid actor’.

Presumably, the purpose of this was to clarify that Snoop Dogg was paid by Menulog to appear in the advert and wasn’t offering a genuine testimonial.

Ad Standards, the Australian advertising watchdog, sometimes makes companies add these disclaimers, even when it’s clear the celebrity endorsement isn’t meant to be taken seriously.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Menulog for comment.

The disclaimer also confused some people, who thought it meant the person in the advert was a Snoop Dogg impersonator.
