VIDEO: David Beckham stars in 'The Cautionary Tale of Ebenezer Snoop'

Andy Murray, Stan Smith and Yohan Blake are among the other sports personalities involved.

SO SNOOP DOGG, or Snoop Lion as he prefers to be known now, has adapted Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’ as part of an Adidas advertising campaign.

And the rapper has gotten a number of his sports star friends on board, with Stan Smith, Dwight Howard, David Beckham, Andy Murray, Yohan Blake, Derrick Rose and Rita Ora all featuring.

Cleverly, Smith is the Ghost of Christmas Past, Beckham is Present and Rose and Ora are future.

And the result? It’s not the most imaginative idea in the world, but there’s something kind of amazing about hearing Snoop say “happy holi-dizzle y’all”.
