In a delightful twist, Snoop Dogg wows fans with his multilingual charm, as he signs autographs in Japanese.
Anybody who is familiar with pop culture will know just how much of an icon Snoop Dogg is. He initially rose to fame with his work in the music industry, but he has branched out into acting in movies and TV shows, as well. The artist shared a video on his Instagram, where he is seen learning to sign his autograph in Japanese for a fan. The wholesome video went viral on the photo-sharing site and gained over 119,283 likes.
At the beginning of the video, we see a fan eagerly waiting to get the rapper's autograph. As he is about to write, he suddenly stops and tells the man, "You gotta show me how to write my name in Japanese." The individual is ready to do so and starts writing in a notebook. Snoop looks at the Japanese characters and realizes that the beginning characters resemble the number seven.
Someone else at the venue asks the man to take the page out of the notebook, so Snoop Dogg can refer to it while signing the autograph. He closely refers to the paper slip and begins relating it to the alphabet in the English language. he mutters, "Back 'n.' Seven. Front 'n.' Backwards Y. Seven. O" He refers to a dash in the Japanese alphabet to the looks of a bullet, saying "Bang bang" as he writes it down. Snoop Dogg, done with it, proudly exclaims, "Ooh, I wrote my name in Japanese!"

People at the place applaud his achievement. His fan is very happy and holds up the autograph for others to see. Another fan comes in and Snoop Dogg says, "You going to get the Japanese version," and starts writing, commenting on how his autograph in Japanese is "sweet."
The video became so popular that it was re-shared on Reddit by u/RunKind4141 and it gained 41.9K upvotes and over 692 comments on the platform. u/RepresentativeNice22 said, "He always seems so relaxed. I wonder how I can achieve that." u/Gayspacecrow was lucky enough to meet Snoop and shared, "I met Snoop at a Walgreens in Vegas like 6 or 7 years ago at 1 am. He had a few bodyguards with him but was more than willing to say hello and chat for a second. Super nice guy, oddly soft hands."

Another user, u/542ir82 said, "He just seems like a genuinely kind person. The kind of person who treats others the way he would want to be treated, and doesn't consider himself better or worse than any other human on this planet." u/myychair said, "Snoop is the poster boy for why we should be encouraging growth instead of canceling people for something they did 20 years ago."
The rapper also extended his business last year when he launched "Doggyland- Kids Songs & Nursery Rhymes." It's essentially an animated series for children available on YouTube and YouTube Kids. He shared the news in a post on X (formerly Twitter), saying, "Presenting 2 you my new kids show @doggyland_kids Where they can sing, dance and learn. Out now on YouTube and YouTube Kids!" The show will have a colorful lineup of dogs who will utilize song, dance and rap to teach children basic social, emotional and cognitive skills.
