Once again proving its capacity to wield its power for good as well as evil, the Internet is now directly responsible for a new series of nature videos narrated by Snoop Dogg. The rapper honed his nature-narrating skills on Jimmy Kimmel Live with a recurring bit called Plizzanet Earth, CNN reports. Next thing you know, more than 65,000 people had signed a petition demanding Animal Planet let Snoop narrate an entire season of the award-winning series Planet Earth, according to Entertainment Weekly.

While that didn't quite happen, the success of the petition prompted Snoop to launch Planet Snoop this week on his Merry Jane website. "Grab your bud and your bong, and get ready to LOL" as Snoop "brings his wild commentary to the craziest viral videos on the web," the site states. Billboard notes that while the first episode—which features a snake fighting a squirrel—isn't super informative, it is entertaining. "I got my money on the squirrel," Snoops says in the video, imploring the animal, "Don't get scared, get the money." (More Snoop Dogg stories.)
