I must admit that I love Jersey Shore and make sure to get my fix, every week. Unfortunately though, I HATE ‘The Situation’. Mike is one of the biggest assholes I have ever witnessed and he has absolutely no right to be; That’s what’s so infuriating. As far as looks are concerned, he’s a ‘butter face’ and his nasty attitude makes him even less attractive.
I think Abercrombie & Fitch agrees with me, and have taken it so far as to ask him to stop wearing their clothing, in exchange for money. He is so highly disliked, that he is being offered money to not represent a company that, quite frankly, should be holding on to everything they’ve got.
Tuesday night, retailer Abercrombie & Fitch posted a statement to its website proposing what it called a “win-win situation” to Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino: stop wearing our clothes and we’ll give you some cash.
“We are deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino’s association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image,” a representative from A&F’s brand senses department wrote. “We understand that the show is for entertainment purposes, but believe this association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans. We have therefore offered a substantial payment to Michael ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino and the producers of MTV’s The Jersey Shore to have the character wear an alternate brand. We have also extended this offer to other members of the cast, and are urgently waiting a response.”
I may be somewhat biased with this post, and I just have to let you know that up front. A friend of mine worked on the first season, and we have watched every episode. Seeing it get picked up is good news for not only the audience that has fallen in love with it, but also my friend who will have a job to go back to!
After the initial air date the show has been hugely successful. “It’s currently MTV’s highest rated new series of 2010 and 2011, attracting an average of about 1.7 million total viewers to its weekly new episodes airing on Monday nights,” as stated by The Hollywood Reporter.
Congratulations to those who were working on the show, those acting within the show and the audience who can look forward to a second season in 2012!
