The sad singing clown with a golden voice Puddles Pity Party is getting into the coffee act. The 6-foot, 8-inch American clown has released the Puddles Pity Party Blend through a collaboration with Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters.
”Oh, hello,” Puddles, who does not speak in person but only sings, said in an announcement of the coffee release. “You guys know how much I love a cuppa coffee. Well, I teamed up with our friends at Batdorf & Bronson coffee roasters to bring to you a coffee blend that will make you cry… with glee!”
Though sad clowns are not traditionally known to have strong singing voices, Puddles Pity Party first gained widespread attention after teaming up with the band Postmodern Jukebox to record the Lorde hit “Royals” in 2013.
Since then, Atlanta-based Puddles has performed at festivals and on tours all over the world, although the hulking harlequin’s performance schedule has been halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The collaboration with the decades-old coffee roasting company — based in Atlanta and Olympia, Washington — resulted in the clown’s ideal profile, which skews dark, according to an announcement from Puddles Pity Party to his fans, known as P3ers.
“Puddles Pity Party won our hearts through his dynamic music and kind spirit long before we connected through coffee,” Batdorf & Bronson Outreach and Customer Support Coordinator Ren Doughty said in the announcement. “Working with Puddles is a unique experience, since it’s all done through a series of pantomimed gestures and intuitive telepathy.”
B&B is selling 12-ounce bags of Puddles Pity Party Blend online for $16 pre-shipping.
