Spencer BLASTS Virgin Mobile -- 'Sparah' Is a Rip-Off!

5/28/2011 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Spencer Pratt is furious at Virgin Mobile -- telling TMZ, the cell company's new celeb couple spoof "Sparah" is blatantly copying Speidi ... and now he wants Virgin to start paying up for using his likeness.

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."

0527_sparah_commercial_min_playerPratt 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."

Attempts to reach Virgin's celeb couple were unsuccessful -- but we're guessing ... "Sparah has no comment."

Don't you worry Spence-Spence. That guy is much better looking than you. And the woman isn't near as vapid-looking as Heidi.

I wish Spencer/Heidi would enter a suicide pact with Michaele/Tareq. The world would be a much more pleasant place.

He's upset that he and Heidi have become national jokes because of this commercial? They became national jokes long before this.

How dare Spencer become angry with Virgin-mobile for naming a couple after Speidi. It's not like he penned the name Speidi himself-HOLLYWOOD did! And at the time their two names were "fused"; I bet he thought it was "cute"! Hollywood produces a great majority of commercials, and no doubt this one as well. Why was it ok for Hollywood to give Speidi, Brangelina, the Former Bennifer,and the like, cutesy names & not a fake couple? Lighten up, Spence! Imitation is the highest form of flattery. And Stop doing what you always do, trying to Capitalize, i.e., "Get Paid" off of every situation. Be grateful there is Still press concerning you. Any press is Good press!!

Oh, please; he probably told them to do it, because -- oh, look -- he's in the papers again. (How much is this loser paying you to hype him, Harvey, or if he's as broke as everyone says he is, is he doing Harvey some kneepad personal favours?)

Also agree with Aquarianne, "Don't you worry Spence-Spence. That guy is much better looking than you. And the woman isn't near as vapid-looking as Heidi" and Cartman, "Go away, tool. Your 15 minutes is over," and Sticks, and samuel bronkowitz and, well, everyone else!

Yeah...I don't see the resemblance at all aside from both women being blonde. Spender and Heidi also don't own the trademark on "Speidi" let alone "Sparrah".

Nice try though. For your efforts, you're leaving with the Home Edition of our game and lifetime supply of Lee Press-On Nails.

Enjoy.

Maybe Virgin could give the two of them one of those old round-the-world balloons for Spence to sell at the flea market.
