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."

I imagine these two are probably behind it? Just ignore them and eventually they will go away

I'm extremely pleased that this idiot is highly upset over this, and that he won't be collecting a dime from VM. Of course he's full of crap when he says he's upset though. He's just being the extremely incompetent fame whore that he is.

I love how he is upset that they are being seen as a national joke because of the commercial. does he not realize that he and heidi have been a national joke since they first started dating? these two are just finding ways to get attention, too bad nobody cares.

Makes perfect sense, when you think about it . . . nobody ELSE is paying this DB for doing anything--oh, wait, he ISN'T doing anything! No wonder nobody's paying him! GET A JOB.

Virgin mobile should have used a different name for the guy so it wasn't so obvious.

Poor Heidi, all that money she spent on her face and some random chick "Sarah" is still so much better looking. Give them the money Virgin Mobile, Heidi still needs more work on her face.

Just kidding, Heidi looks way too artificial already. She needs to lay off the plastic surgery and the bleach.

go home!    

Check your ego at the door loser. The orginal name combining couple is Brangelina, you are like the hundredth name combo couple and a loser at that. No one would want you or your image to promote their product, it would be an instant fail, like your life and career. Go away loser, it has been sooooo nice not to see your or your rubber fiance's face in the press for sooooooo long now. Go away!

Oh my gosh... LOL The commercial is so funny. However, there is a lot of difference between them. The "Sparah" couple are actors, they CAN act, they look/are intelligent, and are WAY better looking that "Speid".

Spence... it's a clever commercial that's making a commentary on the current state of "celebrity" or, more accurately, celebutards. Perhaps it hits too close to home?
