Sheen Shunned

Hanes Drops Ads Featuring Charlie Sheen

Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you.

Those ads where Sheen tried to insinuate himself into Michael Jordan's life for some kind of weird bromance thing revolving around underwear were just plain stupid.

I, for one, am glad Hanes gave Sheen the Tiger Woods boot.

What Hanes SHOULD do is make massive amounts of underwear that are impregnated with highly corrosive acid that's headed for the Middle East.

Another celeb mug shot. Those were strange commercials. The only redeeming feature was Charlie willing to do the self-deprecating humor stuff. I used to watch that 2.5 dudes show.

Steve Harkonnen: Heheh. Now that sounds like a plan.

Steve is a forward-thinking soldier in the new UnderWar.

Perhaps it is time to open a new front in this war, a front in the Middle East. A Y-front.

No more asking "army, navy, or marines?". Now it is "boxers, briefs, or depends?"

Sorry, Steve, when you are at the Pentagon, standing at a podium, debriefing the Joint Chiefs of Staff, I will be the one averting my eyes.

Seems as if advertisers are shying away from sleazy celebs/athletes. I see it as a good trend.

DaBlade: I'm not a fan of either Sheen or Jordan so the commercials brought about a rapid change of channel before the projectile vomiting started ;-)

dmarks: lol. UnderWar. That's a good one.

Chuck: I agree. Hope the trend continues.

I have no idea what any of this is about.
I do know that Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez are brothers. Does that count for anything?

Jen: Lucky you. You have been spared these insipid Hanes commericials where an obseqious Sheen tries to befriend an aloof Jordan.

Um, the fact that the Esteves boys are brothers isn't relevant, but you do get points for the trivia.

I can't believe it took so dang long for then to do it. It's not like this latest thing is the first that's come out. I'm so sick of celebrities as it is. Need I mention Lady GaGa, Chris Brown, the NFL, NBA? Ugh. I wish they would all just go away.
