Big Snoop Dogg’s Puff Puff Pass Tour


Picture: D     Sound: D     Extras: D     Main Program: D



Snoop Doggy Dogg continues to issue DVDs and this reissue of his Puff Puff Pass Tour program, that poses as a concert but is a pro-drug propaganda program, is sadly back.  Obviously, Snoop has been making a name for himself in non-music titles for a few years now, and we are not talking about his acting career.  His tour might have been good, but you cannot tell from this in any way, shape or form.


This tour video lacks the direction, production value, and creativity that every consumer deserves and expects when purchasing a DVD. This DVD will probably be marketed as a concert tour video but it is in fact a behind the scenes look at the concert tour.  There is minimal worthwhile video of the concerts at all.  Instead, it follows Snoop on a city-to-city rampage without much of a storyline at all while bouncing back and forth between events that occur throughout the tour while propagandizing for why marijuana should be legalized.


The production value is so low that the only segment with somewhat acceptable audio quality is the main menu (i.e., the whole 30 second loop of it).  The rest of the audio sounds like it were taken directly from the $200.00 camcorder that captured it.  A DVD of this low quality should upset every professional in the business.  When Snoop Dogg and his cronies allow someone to take their personal cheap camera equipment with them on tour and then call the content they obtain professional, it places high-end competitors in jeopardy. If someone insists on creating something of this caliber then it comes down to the consumers to send a loud and clear message.  This message is best sent by NOT purchasing this DVD, and the Dolby Digital 5.1 sound is as in vein.  It is one of the worse attempts to do a remix from an inferior source you could imagine, from the same ultra low budget source.  This will in turn tell the industry that as consumers, we will not stand for poor quality work. If this DVD makes a lot of money, it will only be a matter of time before everyone who can will start making videos on their camcorders and marketing them as professional quality.  Eagle Vision has some of the best DVDs around.  This is not one of them.
