“Can You Believe It? I’m Actually Flying Commercial”

For two and a half minutes, Diddy (who abuses the first third-person like he was Suede or something) laments rising gas prices by (a) flying American Airlines instead of his private jet and (b) giving “a shout out to all my Saudi Arabian brothers and sisters, and, all my brothers and sisters from all the countries that have oil–if you could please send me some oil for my jet, I would truly appreciate it. Can you believe this? I”m actually flying commercial. That’s how high gas prices are, OK? So I feel you.” The phrase “read it and weep” comes to mind, but Diddy’s genuine incredulity that he might have to act and be treated as a normal person and not a demigod make it more like, “Watch it and vomit.” [YouTube]
