Diddy Will Pay For Your Cab Ride Home Tomorrow If You Drink Enough Ciroc Vodka First
At first we though all these news stories circulating today about Diddy distributing $15 pre-paid taxi cards for drunken New Year's Eve cab rides home and even more hilariously, $2.25 one-way subway cards, were based on a year-old article of ours that seems to have been making the rounds lately. But VIBE's Linda Hobbs seems to have confirmed independently that Diddy's Safe Rides program will be back for another go tomorrow in both New York and Las Vegas. "As the 'Official Vodka of New Year's Eve,' we made a huge impact last year helping New York get home safely," Diddy told VIBE, alluding to the Circoc brand vodka he partially owns and endorses, vodka which is somehow made from grapes instead of desperate and sad Russian potatoes. "So I'm proud to announce that we're bringing Safe Rides back in an even bigger way. By bringing this program to both of these great cities we will continue to show the rest of the country that a sophisticated holiday celebration doesn't end when the ball drops, but when everyone gets home safely." Sophisticated, eh? Spoken like a man who's never been in the back of the cab on the morning after New Year's Eve. [VIBE]
