Mike "the Situation" Sorrentino may have to find some new attire for his "gym, tan, laundry" routine. On Tuesday, clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) said it would offer "substantial payment" to MTV's The Jersey Shore's cast members to stop wearing the brand on air.
We are deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino's association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image. We understand that the show is for entertainment purposes, but believe this association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans," an Abercrombie & Fitch spokesperson said in a statement. "We have also extended this offer to other members of the cast, and are urgently waiting a response."
Makes me, almost, want to shop at A&F. Well, no, on second thought, not even almost.
HA! I woke up this morning thinking about that name, The Situation. What should have happened is this guy starts telling people “Call me The Situation” and everyone replies “Um, no.” That should have been the end of the story.
Also, thanks for “Rotate Your Owl.” I wanna hear the Beastie Boys play that cover.

i have a hard time imagining a situation where that wouldn’t happen. what kind of fuck-ups would say “yeah, good idea! we’ll call you ‘The Situation!’ ?” well, OK… the Jersey Shore kind of fucks-ups would say that; but they’re pretty fucked-up, even for fuck-ups.
