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."

If Virgin Mobile was truly trying to copy Spencer and Heidi (aka by their "native" names as Running Mouth and Standing Bare), then we would, like, totally HATE Sparah! Or Bennifer. Or Brangelina. Or RoLo (points if you can figure that one).

So, Spencer, get a grip. At least until Heidi gets home; maybe then you'll get lucky.

Um..    

I thought of them when I saw this commercial. I don't see how he has a complaint, though. Didn't the last episode of The Hills confirm that the show was scripted? If anyone has a case, isn't it MTV? Anyhoo...the saddest part is the underlying issue. These companies have been "creating" reality for years. Now that the public is on to them, they make it a "parody"? Ok, so, I need to buy this phone to recieve tweets from these sparah-celebrities? Is that the purpose of the ad?

Leader of the ignorant masses    

So i have seen two of these commercials and i do not see how it is ripping them off specifically. The first commercial was about wardrobe malfunctions which is more of a reference to Janet Jackson and the many celebrities who have that oops moment. The second commercial was about toy dogs in purses which is a reference to Paris Hilton and others who made that famous. And as for the mashing of names they did that way before Spencer ever hit the scene. None of this is specific to Spencer and spoof celebrities in general not just couples. What a ego this guy must carry around to think this is all about him when just about every parody reflects celebrities who were famous for these incidents way before he came around. The only thing they have in common is the name Spencer, but his character does not even reflect the douchebaggery that Spencer is famous for. This is just yet another ploy to get himself noticed because people stopped caring about him a long time ago, if they ever did at all.

This is one of the dumbest MoFo's I've ever seen. Could this douche be any stupider? Yes dumb A$s, they are making fun of you. They show your intelligence level in the commercial and they are much more interesting and attractive than you and the plastic-filled blow up doll that you leach off of.

Pis$ off douch.

OMG, seriously. When I saw the commercial I didn't even consider or think of Mr. Doosh. I can't believe I read or am commenting on an article that Doosh is in. Perhaps one of the most pathetic, repulsive, self absorbed individuals I can think of. Pratt=Doosh

"and Pratt is pissed he and Heidi have become the target of a national joke ... with no paycheck to show for it."

So he's saying he doesn't mind them being a national joke as long as they're getting paid for it?
They've always been a joke and I'm sure they weren't getting paid, or did Harvey pay them for all the stories he posted on them? hmmm

She's baaaack    

hahahahahahaha hahahahahahaah. Oh Spencer you delusional freak. I **know** you will be reading this story and comments because it's about you. You're the only one who thinks you're worth anything. Your wife looks like a 40 year old former porn star. You are just plain fugly. Both of you combined are worth nothing. Nothing. With the vastness of young talent in H'wood did you really think you were something special? Too bad you can't find a day job. PS: The last time I checked Al Roker was still working at a few gigs. hahahahaha hahahahaha

... and by the way ... Brangelina weren't the originals. The originals were Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck back in 2002 or 2003. They were given that moniker because Lopez led Affleck around by the nose and he lost all of his individuality (not that he had any to begin with), and so the term "Bennifer" was coined for them. After that the media tried to mingle the names of every-single-duo. Pitt and Jolie didn't even get together until 2004 or 2005. Really.

1st of all whats all this talk about a "target of a
national joke" Heidi and Spencer are a national joke.
With everything from there obnotious personalities to
there bulls#$% nick names they stole from our Native
Americans who by the way were here 1000s of years
before their sorry fake asses ever set foot in this
country.
