He's not allowed in the UK, but he could be allowed in your car. The rapper and hardcore pornographer Snoop Dogg has brought his hilarious "-izzle" speak to TomTom. Snoop - banned from the UK following a caution for affray at Heathrow in 2006, when he and his entourage smashed up duty free because they weren't all allowed in the …
While it is a good idea
I think it will be implemented so terribly I'd like to smashizzle the GPSizzle off the dashboard in a very short space of time. Izzle.
A fool and his money...
Not my thing at all. I quite like the default voices.
I suppose an Ozzy version would be mildly entertaining though.
Turn erm left, No, no, f****ing right! Is it this way? Are those my feet? SHARON! Oh bugger! You missed it.
Turn around when possible, but do it slowly or I'll get f***ing dizzy.
Surely it'll say "Ahead, turn left. Watch out for that tree!"
Sorry. I <3 Ozzy.
pay to NOT have him on my Tomtom....
Anyone that is going to prostitute himself to work with Keenan and whatever that other loser is called on a kids programme has lost all credibility.
fo' shizzle one's nizzle
should anyone be suffering from a fo' shizzled nizzle, may I recommend taking a quick frizzle in the drizel, as this should disinfizzle your wizzle, allowing mo'nizzle to re-endizzle one's fo' shizzled nizzle.
(I'll get my coat)
Martha Stewarts banned from the UK
Also pretty much anyone who has expressed an opinion different from Jacqui Smiths is banned . e.g. Pastors who believe Aids is Gods rath are banned, shock jocks etc.
It was a big mistake giving the Home Office powers to decide who can and who cannot enter the UK. As you see, all that happened was Jacqui Smith started banning anyone who disagreed with her, (nutter), I don't imagine Alan Johnson will be any better.
Whereas the Foreign office has to BALANCE the reaction to Britain's paranoid Island mentality with the rest of the world, the Home Office only has to consider: 1. These foreigners can't vote in the UK, 2. Anything that might result in criticism of the Home Secretary by anyone who can vote .
They don't have to consider the damage they're doing to the UK in world standing..
Martha Stewart etc.
Whilst I agree with your point, I don't think you've used very good examples there.
I mean, who actually wants Martha Stewart, homophobic pastors, shock jocks and Snoop Dogg in the country anyway?
I mean who actually wants Jacqui Smith
"I mean, who actually wants Martha Stewart, homophobic pastors, shock jocks and Snoop Dogg in the country anyway?"
Personally, I want Jacqui Smith turned away at the border to the EU. Who wants such an intolerant bitch allowed into a free country anyway? She'll only spread that poison she spouts.
Oh wait, I take it back. Tolerating people like Jacqui Smith and their extreme viewpoints is necessary in a free country.
Hmmm, rings a bell...
Oh yes, Doonesbury!
lies all lies
First mega star? has everyone forgotten John Cleese? been on tomtom voices for years.
oh - and you can get a fake ozzy osbourne by an impersonator.
All You Need Is Cash
Is Snoop running out of money?
Is this the new 'ringtone' fad - to have s'lebs spouting out on Tom Tom?
Can't wait for the Clarkson one - "You should have been here half an hour ago" , "Driver, drive, murder prostitute, turn left next exit, No you bloody fool, this is a lay by"
Shouty shouty for al those 'stars' who think that we can't get enough of thier voices
For my money
I'd rather have Captain Kirk, bring on the Shat-Nav!
Why does Snoop Dogg carry an umbrella?
They're amusing for the first 5 minutes, and then they make you want to shoot the celebrity. In the head. With a field cannon. Loaded with bits of broken glass. Soaked in acid.
I'd better stop, I'm getting palpitations.
You're a winner!
Nah, ever since Alan "Voice of the Balls" Dedicoat's Tomtom voice was released in aid of Children In Need there has been no further need for any other voices. He's nailed it - clear, calm, precise directions and intonation that doesn't sound out-of-place; I haven't found another voice that comes close (even you, Mr Cleese).
I couldn't handle it
Celeb voices were fun for all about five minutes before the repetition got far too much and I reverted to the standard Female English. I'd like to try out the dedicated K.I.T.T. sat nav, though.
Chrizzle on a Bizzle ?
Tizzle Rizzle for the Wizzle for that one !!
...had a GPS with some fake 'fan-made' celebrity voices. My favorites were Yoda and Mr. T. The funny this is that you'd forget about the voices after driving down a straight for a while, and then,
"MISTA T PITY THE FOOL WHO DON'T TAKE THE NEXT EXIT!@!"
And, of course, Yoda... "In 50 yards, left you must turn - hmm!"
What would have been really excellent is if Majel Barrett had done one. That would have been perfect.
what we really need is...
...the rally version
5 left! Over Crest! 3 Right! Straight! Warning Badgers!
Now that would be good :D
Where's the Maggie Thatcher voice
This Lady's not for Turning... but in 50 yards you should, to the Right of course.
What's Snoop's favourite hand tool?
Doonsbury did a comic series on this
A few weeks back Doonsbury (published in US papers) did a comic series on this . And I thouught it was satire - I guess he has the pulse of the nation
I thought I heard Bob Dylan was in talks to record GPS mis-directions? I'm not sure if he's exactly a mega-star but in my demographic he's easily more recognized (visage, voice, word-choice) than Snoop Dogg. 'not to mention those Woodstockers Gone Wild videos...
