P. Diddy's Album Campaign in Subway Confuses People
Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs has angered public transit workers in New York City after redesigning subway entrance names for an unauthorized campaign promoting his new album "Last Train to Paris". Manhattan's Prince Street and Spring Street stations were given a makeover early on Tuesday, December 14, when magnetic signs were posted over entrances, convincingly altered to read "Last Train to Paris 12.14.10".
People dressed as train conductors also took to the station platforms and yelled, "All aboard! Last train to Paris!" Metropolitan Transportation Authority bosses have confirmed that the advertisement was not official, and station workers began removing the signs later on Tuesday, angry that tourists had been left confused, unaware the signs were part of a marketing ploy.
One worker tells the New York Post, "It's stupid. The signs confuse people. We have a lot of tourists. They don't know. This is just confusing people." A spokesperson for the hip-hop star had not responded to requests for a comment as WENN went to press.
