Sean Combs - Sean 'Diddy' Combs' Downton Abbey News Was Online Spoof

Rap mogul Sean Combs has cleared up confusion surrounding his claims he was set to star in Downton Abbey by debuting an online spoof featuring him parodying the hit U.K. period drama.

The hip-hop star announced on his Twitter.com page on Wednesday (15May13) that he was to become a series regular on Julian Fellowes' British show, only for Tv bosses to deny the claim.

Combs has now revealed his prank was to promote a new FunnyOrDie.com skit, which he unveiled to fans early on Thursday (16May13).

He declares, "Last week it was reported that they have cast the first black cast member... (Gary Carr) - the only problem with this is I already broke down that barrier. I'm the first black cast member... and I got the scenes to prove it."

The rapper then introduces a series of clips from 'Downtown Abbey' which he appears in thanks to computer trickery - and his character, Lord Wolcott, causes a stir in the online show.

In one scene, Combs, dressed in smart period costume, turns down the advances of Rob James-Collier's character Thomas Barrow, while in another he appears to host "the first ever white party" for the cast.

He later recommends Hugh Bonneville's Earl of Grantham invests in upcoming company International Business MAChines Corporation (Ibm) and then offers Dame Maggie Smith and Penelope Wilton's characters a sip of his own-brand Ciroc vodka - before asking them to kiss.
