Be Afraid: “The Situation” Promotes Bieber’s Never Say Never
May 13, 2011
I’m definitely not a Justin Bieber fan, but I’ll admit the kid has talent. He blew up like nitro and is probably one of the most influential artists of his generation. Teens of all genders, ethnicities and races practically worship the ground he walks on. “Bieber Fever” isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. His film “Never Say Never” grossed $94 million at the box office to date and was released on DVD on May 13th. Check out this promotional trailer, featuring Jersey Shore’s Mike “The Situation,” which aired a few months ago when Bieber’s film first came out.
I don’t know about you guys, but the only thing this trailer did for me was disturb me. The Situation is sporting these corny, fake glasses to make himself look scholarly. But he just looks like a cheap, wannabe Hugh Hefner with his chest exposed, an unnecessary scarf and a beverage that appears to be alcoholic. The only thing “Professor Situation” is teaching Bieber followers is how to “pimp.” He suggests that Bieber’s movie plus Valentine’s Day equals “Situation Zone” in the back of the theater, aka a make-out session.
Justin Bieber is a powerful kid who can sell out Madison Square Garden in a mere two days. The Situation, on the other hand, is a clown. He shouldn’t be advertising anything except new Jersey Shore episodes and cheap protein supplements. The Situation is a self-proclaimed “playa.” Is this who Bieber—with millions of young girls as fans—wants to associate with?
I wouldn’t want my child or even younger sibling seeing a G-rated film endorsed by Mike “The Situation.” He’s promoting Bieber’s film as something kids can go to just to make out during and nothing more. I understand Bieber is trying to appeal to older audiences as well as the younger ones, but collaborating with The Situation is not the way to go…at all. Come on now, Bieber.
