Charles Barkley Is Fired From T-Mobile Campaign

January 14th, 2009 // 3 Comments

Blasted! Do the executives at T-Mobile have no leniency for a simple man who just wants to have a beer (or 11), and then drive his vehicle to pick up some chick who gives, like, the bestest hummers ever! I mean, c’mon, man!

T-Mobile swiftly fired Charles Barkley from their most current ad campaign by pulling his commercials after that little, under-the-radar DUI arrest on New Years Eve. No better way to usher in those 2009 resolutions!

“Given the recent developments, for the time being, we’ve replaced TV
ads featuring Mr. Barkley with more general-market advertising,” T-Mobile said. “As he works through his personal matters, we will evaluate where to go from here.”

I just love all the fuzzy language — “recent developments” “personal matters.”

Quite honestly,though. First things first. Let’s hope this little fiasco didn’t scare away (or score better options) for the orally gifted woman inside this whole cyclone.

 

Watch the shelved commercial and view a gallery of Charles Barkley below!

    God, I love Charles Barkley. He’s always been unfiltered and unapologetic and highly entertaining. While DUI is a serious offense and def. not funny, the guy is alright.
