Diddy Wants a Blue Ball for New Year’s

Music, fashion, fragrance, and booze mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs wants to help the city of New York with a contribution of $1 million dollars in exchange for changing the New Year’s ball from white to blue to promote his Ciroc vodka brand.

In the above unscripted “long ass blog” message to Mayor Michael Bloomberg from his kitchen, Diddy also wants you to look out for his street teams who will be handing out $15 debit cards to help you get home safely after the drop.

This is one of the many Diddy-stunts put forth since the Trump of hip-hop took over brand management duties for Ciroc in the Fall of 2007 in exchange for a 50/50 profit split.

Ciroc is imported to the U.S. by Diageo Spirits, a client of Taylor PR. You can find Taylor’s press release on the offer complete with artist’s rendering of the blue ball here.
