Well, its been buzzing around for a day or so that Abercrombie and Fitch wants to Ditch Mike “The Situation” from wearing their clothes on the “Jersey Shore” Reality TV show. The Jersey Shore is MTV’s most highly rated show with Teens and young adults. And supposedly the retailer doesn’t want them wearing their clothes.
This is totally silly, A&F ACTUALLY AND REALLY DID make shirts that said “GTL” the Jersey Shores famous line for what they do all day-Gym, Tan and do the Laundry. And to make matters even sillier they made tons of money selling a shirt that said “Fitchuation” on the front. Like, what is going on here? Doesnt the main man at A&F know what he sells in his own stores? He sells shirts that he never would have sold if it wasnt for the Jersey Shore’s cast and their TV show. Now he doesn’t want them to wear his clothes?
Me personally, I think this is either plain stupid or they are in cahoots together and in a day or two A&F will do a big publicity appearance and make up with the Situation and they will make a special new shirt to sell 1 or 2 or a couple hundred thousand for charity-Or maybe they will make a new shirt or a whole new line of shirts and just split the profits. I don’t know for sure what will happen, but this sure got way, way, way too much exposure on TV, blogs, Radio etc. I’m even writing about it now. What are your thoughts on this? Who’s the winner? the loser? Good Call? Bad Call? LMK what you think?
