Hip-Hop mogul Diddy found a unique way to wish his son a happy birthday despite being in Florida.

While working in Miami, Diddy turned to PORTL Hologram — the first device that allows people to “beam themselves” to another location and interact with the people present — in order to properly celebrate his son Christian Comb’s 23rd birthday in Los Angeles on Thursday.

According to TMZ, during the party, Diddy appeared in a life-size, 4k interactive hologram and began singing “Happy Birthday” with guests and called his son, “my life, my twin, my baby boy, my heart, my soul, my everything.” The hologram reportedly costs around $60,000.

On Twitter, PORTL creator David Nussbaum thanked Diddy and Christian, tweeting, “When you’re in Miami on business but need to make an appearance at an event Malibu for a minute, you call PORTL to beam you there as a real-time interactive hi-def hologram. When you can’t BE there, BEAM there! Thanks @diddy and @KingCombs!”

Christian’s younger sisters Jessie, D’Lila and Chance appeared in the video as well to toast to the occasion.

“I just wanna tell you how much of a blessing it is that you’re my son. I feel like the coolest dad in the world, you know, just cause you’re my son. Every day that I see you, you taught me how to smile, you know? I just wanna tell you that I love you for that for being my son and I’m the proudest dad in the world,” Diddy told Christian in the two-minute video.
