P Diddy vs Lisa Nova

I like how there's no sex or violence in this "video ad". But what is the point? There is no content, no real reason to watch this, unless you crave all things Diddy, as some crave all things Dylan, or Derrida, or Dada.

It does connect. I do feel close to P. Diddy, it's up close and personal. Not horrible. Not stupid. Not excessively arrogant. Just boring, trite, and unspecial.

I think, "What's in this for me? Why should I be watching this? How do I benefit? Can't he tack on a new, unreleased song or something, to make it collectible?"

Try to build user-benefit content into your videos and other media, not just a typical advertising message or sales hype. Come on. It's a new world now.

Bad Boy Records/P. Diddy "Diddy TV is on" (1:02)


Lisa Nova "LisaNova does P Diddy" (1:36)

As If BK named Diddy the king of music & fashion ? really ? you mean they looked at the competition , compared the virtues & merits of elvis vs diddy , or say Michael Stipe v Diddy , i'm sure they go with whos putting most meat in the burger . who cares about the PLANET ? OR THE SHAMEFUL STATE OF THE MUSIC INDUSTRY ? who are the THEY & just exactly who was the competion ? I MEAN THE PUBLIC HAS A RIGHT TO DECIDE : TO INFLUENCE THE JUDGES ~ better still why not for the hell of it get a vote from the customers judge thats something FAIR (when two kings get together tradition & history has it that only one will emerge victorious). Why not let anybody (who buys
a "bk") put names forward on the packaging : they could then also be been seen to do responsible , environmentally posotive things & let the majority decide . THEN RECYCLE THE PACKAGING . BK cant lose cos they have a brand which gets advertised with or without that mans ego , I have to take the point that maybe it compensates for what jlo described as quite the opposite (in the trouser department) & you gotta laugh at him calling himself diddy ; then demanding a whopper (lol) if Diddy could only see himself as others do , as another mediocre rap artist with more $s & bling than most ...desperately hungry for tangible credibility (not). As for Lisa Nova SHE ROCKS !!

Very astute Anonymous. Thank you for the wise and funny comment. I used to analyze every ad and commercial I saw, until I got too worn out.

This idea of BurgerKing just arbitrarily picking Diddyly Squat for the King of Some Kinda Music or whatever it was, is sick.

The public should vote on it, via recycleable forms at Burger King, no purchase necessary.

Don't the execs at BK watch TV? And see how the public votes or a panel of alleged experts and the public?

To just say, "Stephen Malkmus is the King of Music" or any other trivial declaration of no substance (even though I like S. Malkmus of Pavement) is dumb and dumber for sure.
