Leave New Years Eve ALONE Diddy…..December 23rd, 2008
Not A Good Idea + I Don’t Think So + Not Really= HELL NO! Look, I usually turn the other cheek when Diddy presents one of his absurd proposals in infiltrating his “Diddyness” amongst society, but I HAD to speak up on this one. “Ciroc Obama”, that “Search For An Assistant” foolery and his Diddy Blog garbage; all of which I’ve kept clear of, hell, I even cut him slack on his future tin can sounding album with T-Pain, but this is where the line is drawn.
About 20 minutes ago, I received an email from the good folks over at Bad Boy. Usually, I tend to skim through these email blasts and proceed with my day, but when I saw New Year’s Eve in the headline, I assumed it was a HUGE party of some sort….BOY WAS I WRONG.
At first I congratulated Diddy for donating $1 Million to a NYC charity, but when I discovered the reason behind it….I shook my head in disbelief. This fool, Diddy being the fool, thought it would be great to give an NYC charity $1 Million in exchange for a NYE “Bad Boy Takeover”. NO. NO. NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
The message reads as follows, “The vodka brand wants to change the historic crystal ball to reflect its iconic blue sphere. The color of the sphere originates from a unique plant that grows in the Galliac region of France, where CÎROC is still produced, and serves as a symbol of prosperity for the area even today.” Diddy, what in the HELL makes you think TRILLIONS of people want to see a blue gum ball drop from the sky when they traveled halfway across the world to see the historic CRYSTAL one that’s led us into a new year for the past (insert how many years the crystal ball has been around here)?
Diddy, I love your enthusiasm, seriously I do, but this right here, step as FAR away from this as you can. Don’t you usually takeover a foreign island around this time?? Let me guess, you didn’t have enough money to fuel your private jet because of the recession, huh?
Says Diddy of his extravagant NYE takeover, “As the ‘Official Vodka of New Year’s Eve,’ it’s only fitting that we take over New York, the most iconic New Year’s city in the world,” said Combs, who entered into a strategic marketing alliance with the ultra-premium spirit more than one year ago. “I’m going to give every adult in America a taste of what it’s like to enjoy a sophisticated celebration with Diddy, and what better time than while ringing in the New Year.” Uhhhh, no thanks homey, Grey Goose will do juuuuuuuuust fine on December 31st.
Alright, now that you know his plans, what do you think??? Is this absurd or are you looking forward to partying with Diddy and his Ciroc beverage on December 31st?
LowKey’s Verdict: 2008 was alreay a bad year, don’t make it worse, Diddy!
