Photo: Diddy Takes Over NYC's Train Stations For 'Last Train To Paris'

Diddy is taking album promotions to a whole new level. The music mogul took to the Prince Street and Spring Street train stations in New York City to promote his latest album Last Train To Paris yesterday to help coincide with the album's release.

It seems that the advertisement threw some commuters off. Most complained that the ad was confusing.

According to the New York Daily News, Diddy also hired people to dress as train conductors and to say "All aboard! Last train to Paris!" throughout the train station

No surprise Diddy would go above and beyond to promote this album. It didn't look good for him when the album was repeatedly pushed back with fears from some fans that the album would be shelved. I was actually surprised that the album finally came out.

I did take a quick listen to Last Train To Paris and thought it was original. I do like the fact that it doesn't sound like anything I've ever heard before, but some of the songs had me wondering damn, he still hasn't gotten over JLO?

Diddy's ad campaign kind of reminds me of the same campaign Kanye was running a few years back. The ad appeared on trains and suggested that if one would call the listed number they would find out how they could "be Kanye."
