After SNL, @chrisgethard finally met @iamdiddy and the #diddygethard promise was reborn once more

Knowing that Sean Combs, aka "Diddy," was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live, and knowing that many friends and colleagues of comedian Chris Gethard work on SNL, then it's not surprising that forces of karma worked for good and got the two of them to meet face-to-face.

If you need catching up, then read my Christmas Day/New Year's Eve 2009 report from Gethard about his mission to get Diddy to appear on his monthly show at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in NYC. Diddy said he would, but then he hadn't. So Gethard, while promoting his Comedy Central series Big Lake this summer, got Jimmy Fallon to spread the word once again on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Again, Diddy said he'd do the show, but then he hadn't.

But early Sunday morning, after SNL, Diddy met Gethard. This is how that looked:


I'm not sure why Diddy needs Twitter to remind him to do the show in January. He could just do the show. Diddy: Do the show.

Gethard's message accompanying this clip on YouTube? 

"Attention everyone who doubted and hated on the likelihood of DiddyGethard ever actually happening – you lose."
