Bristol Palin and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino have recorded a public service announcement for The Candies Foundation, which aims to prevent teen pregnancy. (Their website is vague as to whether they’re pro-abstinence or pro-protection, and they seem to advocate for both.) The video is cringe worthy on several levels and will do little to further the cause. It may help warn hapless young women not to hook up with loser douches like The Situation, and that’s worth something. It also might go far to help dilute The Situation’s already saturated brand, because the entire bit is a play off his lame moniker. At one point he tries to explain safe sex using his name as the only noun.
“Just in case you do get into a situation, I want to make sure you’re situated. Because if you do get into a situation with your situation, you may end up with a situation and you may not like that situation.”
In related news about the Palin family, Bristol and her little sister Willow, 16, got into a Facebook flamewar with someone who criticized her mom’s new reality show. TMZ has a PDF of the whole stupid thread if you’re interested. Willow started attacking the guy personally, called him fat and even calling him the anti-gay “F” word. I don’t have the patience to go through the whole thing and figure out who all the players are, but Bristol gets in on it too and goes after the guy and one of his buddies. For all you can say about this family, they sure stick together. It’s despicable that anyone is still using the “F” word though, that should have gone the way of the “N” word a long time ago. And a 16 year-old should know better.
