Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly sang “Boats ‘n Hoes” from Step Brothers during Snoop Dogg’s birthday celebration.
It was a Step Brothers reunion over the weekend, as Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly joined Snoop Dogg on stage to sing the bonafide classic “Boats ‘n Hoes”, which was robbed of an Oscar nomination we tell ya!
To celebrate Snoop Dogg’s 52nd birthday at the Best Night of Your Life 2 benefit show, Ferrell and Reilly got on stage at Los Angeles’ Greek Theater in outfits similar to those they wore in the “Boats ‘n Hoes” video, prompting a major audience reaction, as can be seen in a video posted on TMZ. 52 isn’t normally a big-bash sort of birthday, but it’s Snoop Dogg, so every day is an occasion to party. And if you can bring back the team of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly – who haven’t appeared in a movie together since 2018’s Holmes & Watson – all the better. Snoop Dogg even showed off his cake, which wasn’t nearly as extravagant or smoke-filled as we would have hoped…On the occasion, Reilly said, “Yesterday was a very special day…It was Mr. Snoop Dogg’s birthday. We’re about to sing happy birthday to the greatest rapper in the world!”
Considering we will probably never get a Step Brothers 2 – perhaps especially so due to the split between Ferrell and one-time partner Adam McKay – and the once-planned rap album with the duo was scrapped long ago, this short reunion will have to do. At least it’s a fun way to remind everybody just how beloved Step Brothers remains in the 15(!) years since its release. Step Brothers would go on to gross $100 million domestically, placing it in the company of Due Date, This Is the End and Bad Grandpa as far as R-rated comedies go.
Outside of the Step Brothers number, Snoop Dogg also performed one of his signature songs, “Gin and Juice”, which we imagine goes quite well with boats and hoes. Snoop Dogg also appeared alongside Ferrell in 2003’s Old School during the Mitch-a-Palooza sequence.
