“Hmmm if They Don't Want Us To Wear Those Clothes Why Make GTL Shirts #yourPRsux,” Pauly tweeted earlier today, linking to a photo of an Abercrombie & Fitch shirt embroidered with the words “GTL: (You Know the Deal).” Hmmm, indeed! Why slam the clever macaroni rascals for "damaging [your] brand" if you are actually profiting from their hijinx?
The GTL shirt isn’t the only item of Jersey Shore-related clothing that the store has been peddling. In fact, last summer, the brand came out with a number of graphic tees with Shore-related sayings, including a top that read “The Fitchuation.” You’ve been caught, A&F, and by none other than eagle-eyed Pauly D!
Earlier today, MTV responded to Abercrombie & Fitch’s offer by calling it a “clever PR stunt.”
Whose side are you on: Abercrombie & Fitch or the Jersey Shore clan?
