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."

They even used the name Spencer? That's not right. However, I'm sure they would have loved to work with Spencer and Heidi if they weren't such camera whores and clearly Spencer is hard to work with, says EVERYONE.

Then Spencer....you need to pay up for the use of likeness when it comes to Brangelina, and other celebrities that have had their names fused together. Quit trying to find a way to make a quick buck.

I heard that Heidi and Spencer were doing a porn film with animals but could not find any animals that would have sex with them, so they tried this to earn money.

for the record "speidi", the celeb name mash up game has been around long before you, its not about you, no one cares about you. the commercials are playing off of the fake, hollywood, fame whore culture. the famous for being famous, "look at me!" lifestyle. maybe i was wrong, maybe it is about them.

Uh    

Hard to believe you all are giving this "story" credibility. When has any "story" dealing with Spencer or Heidi been anything more than a fabrication?

I love the fact that the little gold digger is more interested in getting paid instead of stopping the "imagined" ridicule of Speidi.....like someone else said so simply...get a job.

Spencer you would need to be relevant for them to want to copy your likeness.

Did you trademark the name Spencer? Because that is the only thing you have in common. These actors don't look like you, act like you or talk like you.

Wait, does Spencer think he invented and owns the concept of reality star? LMAO!

Looking at that pic TMZ posted the 2 actors actually resemble Brody Jenner and Kristin Cavallari. They would have a better case to sue then Spencer.

It looks a parody to me - which is dead on accurate accurate. It's not a surprise that other nations find our media to be hideous. I mean really, how are the two clowns even famous with zero talent and limited education?
