For those watching the various golf events of late, you might be wondering after the 3 millionth airing of the Snoop Dogg-Lee Iaccoca Chrysler ad, that the course they are playing is Woodland Hills Country Club in (where else) Woodland Hills, California.
You know the ad by now. It's sandwiched between those 60 second Greatest Piano Solo spots that remind Tim Finchem he has a lot of work to do on the new TV deal. The punchline of the ad:
You know, I'm not too sure what you just said. Now everybody gets a great deal," Iacocca says in the spot.
"Fo shizzle, I-ka-zizzle," Snoop Dog replies.
Were you like me, thinking Iacocca couldn’t possibly need the money and yet Snoops to this level?
Well, don't I feel like a jerk after reading an article about it:
Iacocca is donating the money Chrysler is paying him to do these spots to a foundation he set up to battle diabetes, the disease which killed his wife. USA Today reports that Snoop Dogg told Iacocca during the filming that he has a brother with diabetes, and said he admired what Iacocca is doing.
"He's just a good kid," Iacocca told USA Today about his co-star. "I didn't understand half the things he was telling me, but it was fun."
