Abercrombie & Fitch Bribes The Situation To Stop Wearing Their Clothes

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino isn't exactly a role model, but we feel that it's safe to say that he's the opposite of one—the "Do Anything But What He's Doing" Model. Consequently, we don't blame Abercrombie & Fitch for trying to bribe The Situation to stop wearing their clothes. "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.” A quick look at Abercrombie's recent campaign gets us confused though: Juiced, shirtless, tan dudes three-way kissing girls? Yeah—yeah, no relation to The Jersey Shore at all. (WWD)
