Everyone Hates K-Fed

Thursday, January 25, 2007

Kevin Federline's Superbowl commercial for Nationwide Insurance, which depicts him cooking french fries at a fast food restaurant while dreaming of being a rap star, has pissed off the entire American food service industry.

In a letter to Nationwide Insurance, the president of the National Restaurant Association said: "This commercial is a strong and direct insult to the 12.8 million Americans who work in the restaurant industry. It would give the impression that working in a restaurant is demeaning and unpleasant."

Another spokesperson for the NRA said, "A sudden change in Federline's career could have been depicted with him holding an unemployment benefit check."

I don't know what kind of PR genius the National Restaurant Association hired as their spokesperson, but everyone knows that you can't get an unemployment benefit check if you've never actually had a job. And of course it's not "demeaning" or "unpleasant" to wear a paper hat to work everyday and to make $7/hour. Now go clean the urinals or you're fired.
