So you know that Sparah ad campaign that Virgin Mobile is running about a fake celebrity couple they’ve created? Well apparently, Spencer Pratt thinks they’re ripping him off and are now demanding that they pay up for using his idea. Yeah, great way to tell the public that you and your wife don’t actually love each other and are only staying together for the publicity, numb nuts.
If you haven’t seen the commercials … Virgin Mobile’s new ad campaign is built entirely around a fake Hollywood couple called “Sparah” — a mashup of the names Spencer and Sarah — and Pratt is pissed he and Heidi have become the target of a national joke … with no paycheck to show for it. According to Spencer, Speidi’s getting ripped off — telling us, “They should being paying for using our likeness. It’s obvious they are trying to be us.” Pratt doesn’t stop there — adding, he and Heidi “hate” Sparah … “It’s nuts how much [Virgin is] promoting them, when they are obviously copying us.” SOURCE
So did you just admit that you’re a fake couple? Genius. Absolutely genius. This has to be some sort of performance art about the state of celebrity, because there is absolutely no way someone could watch a commercial about two people pretending to love each other for fame and money and think “hey, they ripped us off!” I mean, it would take a completely useless, morally reprehensible person to do something like that in real life, right? … RIGHT?!
