Snoop Dogg, Ethical Hacker?

From http://gcn.com/articles/2010/09/02/hack-is-wack-with-snoop-dogg.aspx:

"Ready to show off your mad freestyle rap skillz? Snoop Dogg and Symantec's Norton are teaming up to sponsor a video contest for raps about hacking, identity theft and computer viruses.

Yes, that Snoop Dogg. Yes, that Norton. Fo' realz y'all. "

Does this help our image, or the image of computer security, or is Norton trivializing the issues in order to increase sales?

It certainly seems to me that any time they come up with one of these "public service" rap ideas, its more of a laughingstock than anything else. They should stick to after school specials which are taken much more seriously  8)

Re: Snoop Dogg, Ethical Hacker?

As an additional update, apparently the site was riddled with security holes, leading to at least one "rickrolling":
