Restaurants, bars, and lounges across the world hosted people celebrating Cinco de Mayo on Thursday, commemorating the anniversary of Mexico’s victory over the Second French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862.
As customary to many Cinco De Mayo celebrations, tequila-infused drinks are typically in flux, and media mogul Sean Diddy Combs made sure people tapped into the vibes.
It's A Vibe
Celebrants were in for a pretty dope surprise as Diddy, and DeLeón Tequila teamed up with holoportation startup Proto, Inc., in which he serves as an advisor, to celebrate #CincoDeLeón from Harlem to Jalisco.
As it was the first time the live hologram was used in this way, Diddy beamed into three different venues in three different cities (Eight Lounge, Rare Restaurant, Brooklyn Restaurant & Lounge) to engage customers in a unique, interactive way.
During the interactions, Sean Combs made a toast to fans and customers across the world. He not only encouraged them to pour one up to life but also thanked them for their support of DeLeón Tequila.
Per the brand’s messaging, DeLeón is made from 100% Blue Weber agave and sourced from the rich earth of the Los Altos region of Jalisco. The agave is hand-selected for ripeness before harvesting and yields sweet piñas to achieve the smoothness of DeLeón Tequila.
And with that said, cheers!
