Snoop Dogg -- occasionally known as Snoop Lion or Snoopzilla -- apparently filled up his hotel room in Melbourne, Australia, with so much smoke that it set off a fire alarm that summoned the fire brigade.

Which, if you think about it, isn't all that surprising. Impressive? Yes. Surprising? Not so much.

Firefighters were in for a treat when they arrived on the scene, where they were greeted by Snoop Dogg, who quickly explained the misunderstanding.

"It was pretty funny," recalled Trevor Bowen of the incident. "We had a brush with Mr. Snoop himself."

The fireman went on to add, "He asked us for a photo because he said he always wanted to be a firefighter."

Adorable! Snoop later added the photo (above) to Instagram.

The men would not comment on what the smoke that set the alarm off was, but we can all take an educated guess here.
