Wall Street Journal:
When he launches a new men's fragrance next month, Sean "Diddy" Combs, the hip hop impresario turned marketing mogul, hopes his sales pitch will resonate with the same consumers who voted for Barack Obama.
Mr. Combs said the campaign for the $57 fragrance called "I am King," which is licensed by his Sean John fashion label to Estee Lauder Cos., will telegraph black success.
"When you see Barack Obama, you see a strong, elegant black man and when people see my ad, it's almost like that's the trend," he said in an interview.
Next month - "Just'in" time for the inauguration balls that many brothers will travel to DC to be a part of history and dance the night away.
The thought of it all:
The standard presidential photo on your wall.
A bottle of "I Am King" on your chest of drawers!
What a country we live in!
A Black man can become president and another Black man can market this fact in the wake of this event.
No doubt Russell Simmons will release shoes labeled "Yes You Can Dunk".
Opps! That idea has been taken already.
