Is Snoop Dogg a Vampire in Netflixs Day Shift? Maybe!

Warning: Major Day Shift spoilers ahead. Read at your personal risk.

Look, Ill just say it: If youre likely to put Snoop Dogg in a vampire movie, you need to make Snoop Dogg a vampire. That is doubly true for Day Shift, the brand new Netflix action comedy that kinda, sorta, almost makes Snoop Dogg vampire, but cant quite pull the trigger. (At the very least, not explicitly.) Instead, the movie leaves audiences asking, Wait is Snoop Dogg a vampire or not? So my question for director J.J. Perry and writers Tyler Tice and Shay Hatten is this: Why are you currently denying individuals what they need? Invest in vampire Snoop!

Day Shift, which began streaming on Friday, stars Jamie Foxx as a vampire hunter named Bud. Bud makes his living by killing vampires and selling their fangs for the money, but since he got kicked out from the vampire hunter union, hes getting paid much less. When Bud is confronted with the duty of creating a couple of cash to cover his daughters school tuition, he turns to his old union pal Big John Elliottaka Snoop Dogg himselfto devote an excellent word with the union boss.

As Big John, Snoop is actually a weathered LA cowboy. He rocks a wide-brimmed hat, a large silver belt buckle, a bushy curved mustache, and a soft leather vest. His entrance in to the movie comes boots first, along with a song that declares him a deer-huntin, beer-guzzlin, Southern man. And, needless to say, he tops everything off with popular of a blunt.

Unfortunately for individuals who tuned into Day Shift specifically to start to see the Gin and Juice rapper on screen, we dont see a lot of Snoop after he sweet-talks his buddy Bud back to the union. But he does arrive again by the end of the movie, just with time to save your day with an extremely big gun. So when he is overcoming vamps side-by-side with Jamie Foxxand kicking a great deal of asshe gets bitten. He gets bitten badly. Like, right in the neck. Wherever Dracula would bite his victims and everything.

Youd believe that would segue into Snoop turning out to be a vampire, right? Right?! Instead, Snoop makes the sacrifice play. He insists that Jamie Foxx continue without him, while Snoop stays behind to inflate himself and the rest of the vampires. (Its so Jamie Foxx can go rescue his family. Dont be worried about it.) Its sad, but alls well that ends well, because, in the films final moments, Snoop Dogg pops from the sewer such as a teenage mutant ninja turtle, lights up a blunt, and says, Thats what I really like about LA. All of the damn vampires!

How did Snoop survive that blast? Is he a vampire in the end? The movie doesnt specify, even though this would have already been a perfect possibility to zoom in on his newly-formed fangs or something. (And he doesnt have fangs, so far as I could tell.) Cmon! The audience could have lost their minds! If youre likely to make Snoop a vampire, you cant be subtle about any of it. Youve really surely got to hit us on the heads with those fangs.

Oh, well. Its a wasted opportunity, to be certain. But maybe well see Snoop sipping on gin and blood in Day Shift 2.
