Diageo has launched an ad campaign for its Ciroc vodka brand for the US market featuring Sean “Diddy” Combs and an up-and-coming comedian.

The advert, titled ‘Perfectly Smooth’, will feature the duo, although the identity of the comedian has yet to be revealed.

Diageo will use the campaign to introduce the new Ciroc Red Berry and Coconut flavours.

The campaign will feature a 30-second on-air "teaser" spot to promote a full three-minute long short film that will appear online at www.ciroc.com.

The film will be supported by additional creative and online creatives that will air later this summer, which will include a social responsibility-focused spot.

Diageo launched the Ciroc Red Berry and Ciroc Coconut variants in February.
