Diddy Channels Sinatra In Ciroc Vodka Commercial

Diddy

I saw this commercial the other day on television. I loved it so much that I had to post in on this blog. It's Sean "Diddy" Combs advertising for Ciroc Vodka. The commercial has a Rat Pack vibe to it, including using Frank Sinatra's
Come Fly With Me (one of my favorite Frankie tunes). It's a pretty cool and hip commercial. I love it. I know that Combs is a big fan of the Rat Pack, especially Sinatra. I think it's amazing that so many of the stars of today want to emulate the Rat Pack. I sure can't blame them one bit. Cheers!

Can't remember if I've asked this but have you heard the Mint Royale remix of Frank's 'This Town' - would have made a great soundtrack to this ad'

No, I haven't heard that yet. I bet it does sound awesome. Yeah, that would have been cool in this particular ad. It's a cool commercial nonetheless.

I liked this commercial. I've not seen it yet. I can see how Diddy tries to live the Rat Pack lifestyle. I don't blame him either.

Glad you enjoyed it. I'm thrilled that I could be the one to share it with me. Diddy definitely tries to emulate the Rat Pack in the way he lives life to the fullest.

The Ciroc 1 Million Dollar offer

There’s only one day a year when the world collectively parties together, New Year’s Eve and the Time Square ball drop in NY is one of the premier locations for bringing inn the new year! For countless years brands like Korbel Champagnes and Waterford crystal have positioned themselves as the official Champagne and New Year ball crystal of the Times Square celebration all in hopes of capitalizing on the unique marketing opportunity. Although Champagne is the common celebratory libation of choice to ring in the New Year, Diddy and Ciroc are trying to change the tradition to include their “ultra-premium vodka.”
The constantly evolving marketing machine that is Diddy is offering the Mayor and City of New York $1 Million Dollars to change the New Years Eve Ball to Ciroc Blue. Although Diddy admits the proposal is a publicity stunt to help brand Ciroc to the New Years Party crowd, he does say that he just wants the color to be changed, no logo. I guess given these hard economic times people might just feel the need to sip on something a bit more stiff than the traditional bubbly. Diddy doesn’t pose a specific use for the contribution but suggest using it to build parks, improve schools or for foreclosure “bailouts.” As yet there hasn’t been a response from the Mayors office.
In addition Diddy goes on to announce that the Ciroc street team in conjunction with the New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission will be handing out $15 taxi cab vouchers to New York party goers to make sure they get home safe.

Hey there. Thanks for the comments. I hadn't heard any about that so it was quite interesting to read it. I appreciate you sharing that with me here. I think that's a fascinating concept that Diddy and Ciroc have going. I wish them the best. I'm a big fan of Diddy. Hope you've had a cool weekend. Cheers!

That was a great ad. He and Ashton Kutcher tried to start their own "Rat Pack" clique a few years back but quickly figured out that you can't force something like that, it naturally comes together....

I love this ad. I know what you mean. I think there are plenty of guys that try to start their own Rat Pack. It can't be forced. It has to happen naturally.
