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."

Spencer does understand the entire country was laughing at them BEFORE the creation of this fake celeb couple, right?

Notice how he doesn't object to being a national joke...he just objects to not being paid for it. What a low-life.

The male in the ad is actually physically attractive, therefore, no comparison to "SPIEDI", what so ever!!! PLUS, the female is naturally beautiful (in comparison)!

Unless Spencer has the rights to any of this, such as the name etc.. he has no case. The likeness is pure coincidence. Speidi was a name the press put on them. Just another way for these two looser's to put their name out there again.
It's a well done commercial done by a very rich man's company that could embarrass Spencer and Heidi back into hiding, by having more money than God to shut this suit down. Let's just see how far they get with this attempt.
