P. Diddy commercial proves too fragrant
Glad to see I'm not the only person who’d rather not watch, or even contemplate, P. Diddy having sex. Other like-minded individuals have banned the new ads for his “Unforgivable” fragrance from cable television because they show the famous(ly awful) rapper/producer/wearer of fur coats parking his car in Jessica Gomez’s garage. Diddy courted controversy with an earlier Unforgivable ad campaign which was deemed too raunchy to display on bus stops. Since he’s already proven himself to be too hot for both television and public transit, expect steamy pictures of him and various models under rumpled bedclothing to appear in libraries and interactive “Shoot the bunny” banner ads any day now.
