Snoop Dogg Pays Tribute to True Blood with 'Oh Sookie'

06/18/2010 at 01:00 AM EDT

Snoop Dogg loves True Blood!

The rapper, who name-checked HBO's vampire hit in his song "Gangsta Luv," now stars in a video called "Oh Sookie," a tribute to the show's heroine, Sookie Stackhouse (played by Anna Paquin).

"Oh Sookie," he raps, "Come and play on my team / we'll do it in the daytime / Bill won't know a thing."

With lookalikes dancing on the set of the parking lot of Merlotte's, the local watering hole in the fictional town of Bon Temps, La., Snoop offers to buy the telepathic waitress a gin and juice. And after making his case for a date – "Can a Dogg get some love / Won't trick you like Eric / And make you drink blood" – he reveals his affection for another True Blood character, Tara (played by Rutina Wesley).



"Bring a friend," he says. "As a matter of fact, bring your best friend Tara. I got some real eggs for her to eat. And these eggs come with a whole lotta cheese and grits."

True Blood is back, airing Sundays (9 p.m. EST) on HBO. –Aaron Parsley
