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."

You are free to like Spencer & Heidi or not. But Spencer is right: a big corporation should not have the freedom to indirectly exploit people.
If it happened to you, you weren't happy.

Spencer Pratt - the "white" Joe Jackson - doesn't mind being the butt of a joke unless he's not getting paid for it!!! Get a job and stop leaching off of Heidi - oh wait, that's not going to happen - the Hollywood dream has her convinced she has to be this demure sex goddess and devoted I-don't-know-what-to-this-fool-Spencer in order to be famous and get more money! What a waste of human life! Selling your soul for money is no different than selling your body for money Heidi. Wake up - get out of Hollywood and find a nice, normal guy who'd love you for being you - not some plastic Barbie doll wannabe.

"Sparah" is somehow a mish mash of Spencer & um Heidi?
It took both of those unemployed minds put together to add that up.
Had Vigin used their likeness wouldn't it have been something like Spidy, as in itty bitty?

i like the way he said he's "pissed he and Heidi have become the target of a national joke ... with no paycheck to show for it" when they've always been a joke.

Sarah is a lot prettier and more natural looking than the Frankenstein's bride Heidi has turned her self into. And Spencer just plain svcks so who cares.

The ad campaign is about as good and successful as they are... in other words, not very.

So they are uneducated about satire and the fair use doctrine? Too bad, so sad...
