Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong Snuck in Lots of Pot References on DWTS

Tommy Chong got a little help from an old friend on the premiere of Dancing with the Stars.


For Monday night's show, Chong appeared on stage in a lowrider with a very enthusiastic Cheech Marin, surrounded by a whole lot of smoke—even though Chong said producers wouldn't let him display any pot plants or bongs as props. BOO. (Hmmmm. I wonder what all that green could possibly symbolize?) But it's perfectly fine to evoke memories of this. Thanks ABC!

He danced the Cha-Cha-Cha to Snoop Dogg's "Drop It Like It's Hot" with his partner, Peta Murgatroyd who was dressed in sparkly green, which Chong told Time makes her look like a "little marijuana bud." So how did Chong and his little marijuana bud do? They got a 27 out of a possible 40. Right on, man. Right on.

Okay, I had a couple of glasses of wine at dinner, so maybe I'm overreacting?

But. Oh my fucking god. Cheech and Chong on DWTS? Plus Snoop Dogg? And someone with the real surname "Murgatroyd"? Are we certain this is actual pre-watershed network TV and not an SNL skit? I AM DYING.
