Snoop Dogg’s got jokes.
On Tuesday, Aug. 10, he uploaded a photo of himself and Kevin Hart posing together on the set of their “Olympic Highlights” show. The Peacock TV segment gave the comedian and the rapper a chance to show off their sports commentary skills as they reviewed some highlights from the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
But something seemed obviously different about the photo. The two were seemingly resembling each other in several ways. They each wore blazers, stood in similar poses with their hands crossed and deadpan facial expressions, and they were strangely the same height. The stand-up comedian, who is said to be between the height of 5 feet 2 and 5 feet 4, was miraculously just as tall as Snoop, who is about 6 feet 4. The L.A. rapper jokingly wrote, “Me and @kevinhart4real took the Olympics 2 new heights 👊🏾👏🏿🤣🎊. 🇺🇸 🏅.”
Fans reacted to the hilarious photo. One person said, “Somebody had a growth spurt.” What made the photo even more hilarious was fans pointing out that someone forgot to edit Kevin’s shadow to match the edited height. A fan wrote, “Why his shadow still short tho 😂,” and someone else said, “Why Kevin Shadow Snitchin on him 😂.”
Others mentioned that something looked off with the “Think Like a Man” actor’s knees. “Yo I just realized whats going on..but He ain’t got no knees thoughhhhh 😂😂😂,” they wrote.
Despite being made fun of for his height and even using it as part of his jokes at times, he’s actually “beyond confident” in his size, according to what he told Oprah Winfrey in a past interview. Hart seems to have no desire in dwelling on his stature.
He told Winfrey, “I don’t believe in doing things to manufacture my body to appeal to what I think people might like. This is it. This is what I was given. This is my playing cards. If we were playing poker, I’ve got to make this hand work. This is it for me. And this is what I’m going to ride out. So how do you not embrace it? You get one life. One. You get one life. I’m going to embrace mine.”
