Eminem and Snoop Dogg shared a comically large joint and turned into animated apes during a MTV Video Music Awards performance that Twitter users weren’t feeling on Sunday.

Eminem revealed last week that he would perform his new collaboration with Snoop Dogg, “From The D 2 The LBC,” in a colorful and flashy performance from “inside the world of the Otherside metaverse.”

The performance featured the two “smoking” a big joint before they were virtually transported into a video-game-like, psychedelic rollercoaster.

The performance was organized by Yuga Labs, an NFT and cryptocurrency business, and it featured the rappers portray animated Bored Ape NFTs.

Eminem reportedly purchased a Bored Ape NFT for roughly $460,000 earlier this year, while Snoop Dogg joined the “Bored Ape Yacht Club” in December 2021.

You can watch a clip of the performance below.

VMAs viewers, however, weren’t digging the two legendary rappers’ Zuckerberg-esque showcase.

Twitter users mockingly compared the performance to the hip-hop video game “Def Jam: Fight for NY” and said the metaverse would “never slay.”
