When you’re hot, everyone wants a piece of you — including those with a product to sell.
Hence the following press release about Snooki of “Jersey Shore” wearing — I kid you not — Aroma Home Green Frog Slippers.
Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the past year, you know a thing or two about the antics of the cast of “Jersey Shore.” In the group’s latest scuffle, the show’s breakout star, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, is spotted just moments before her arrest for alleged public drunkenness on Friday walking the boardwalk of Seaside Heights, N.J. with not only a beer funnel in tow, but sporting a pair of Aroma Home Green Frog Slippers.
It’s these kinds of press releases, actually, that do make me wish I lived in a cave.
But let’s think about this: Is Snooki reallythe spokeswoman you want under these circumstances — especially given the whole beer funnel/arrest thing? Will people rush out and buy goofy-looking slippers because Snooki is seen in them? And if so, can we make sure that none of these people are allowed to go out in public, much less vote?
Not that I would have anyway, but in light of this announcement, I promise you that nobody I know will ever wear a pair of Aroma Home Green Frog Slippers. And for the record, I haven’t been seen with beer funnel in years.
