Virgin Mobile Manufactures Celebrity Couple

Meet Sarah, a thin leggy blonde and her new dashing, confused beau, Spencer. With their powers combined, they become “Sparah,” Hollywood’s newest celebrity couple. Isn’t this exactly how you’ve always imagined celebrity couples are formed? A talent agent introduces the pair, goes over (in Spencer’s case) cringe-worthy wardrobe malfunctions and hands them the keys to a new SUV and a mansion?

In this case, Virgin Mobile’s latest campaign with Mother NY will actually make Spencer and Sarah into L.A.’s newest “it” couple over the next six months. That’s right, this sociological experiment will actually take place right before our eyes. “Sparah” will appear in commercials, at store openings and public events like Virgin’s Freefest. Celeb obsessed fans can even monitor Sparah’s rise to fame on Virgin’s Facebook page. Confused how this will play out? As the pair’s talent agent (who we’ll hopefully see more of) says, “That’s a tweet. Tweet that shit.” Credits after the jump.
