Oh, Diddy, you little devil.
The Mount Vernon-raised music mogul had Downton Abbey fans – and PBS execs – scratching their heads when he sent out a tweet yesterday, announcing that he was joining the cast of the mega-popular British costume drama.
Turns out he was simply promoting a Downton – or is it Downtown? - parody he’d done for the comedy website, Funny or Die. In it, Diddy’s digitally inserted into a bunch of the show’s scenes as Lord Wolcott, the new owner of the show’s majestic estate.
And the video is so hilarious, we’re happy to forgive him for his little prank. (Even if we do have to watch out for the f-bombs and other four-letter words…) Don’t believe Diddy can bring the funny? Check out Lord Wolcott encouraging Isobel Crawley and the Dowager Countess to make out.
