NEW ALBANY, Ohio -- A clothing company is offering money to Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and his fellow "Jersey Shore" cast members - so they'll stop wearing the brand on the show.
Abercrombie & Fitch Co. says in a news release posted Tuesday that it's concerned that having Sorrentino seen in its clothing could cause "significant damage" to the company's image.
Abercrombie says a connection to The Situation goes against the "aspirational nature" of its brand and may be "distressing" to customers. The Ohio-based retailer says it has offered a "substantial payment" to Sorrentino and producers of the MTV show so he'll wear something else.
The company says it also is making the offer to others in the hard-partying cast.
An MTV spokeswoman did not immediately return messages for comment on Wednesday.
(1) There's no such thing as bad publicity. They love that people on Jersey Shore wear their stuff. (2) They're also aware of a backlash against Jersey Shore, so they're using this to get even more publicity for being part of that backlash. (3) I would like to ( ) Have my cake ( ) eat it (X) both.
Wait you mean the nation's douchiest clothier is asking the douchiest group of "celebrities" to stop wearing their clothes in a douchetastic (and transparent) way to get attention and increase its douchebaggery? Say it ain't so.
