The Lyrics

Upper priced American clothing retailer, Abercrombie And Fitch, recently complained about the cast of reality tv's, "Jersey Shore" wearing their brand of clothing on the show..
An Abercrombie named, Dave, and old Ezra Fitch
Opened up a new store catering to the rich
First one in Ohio, Eighteen Ninety Two
Stocking sports goods, shotguns, fishing rods, new

Brought their store to Manhattan, very fast spread their fame,
Many years, quite successful, well reputed, the name
Then filed for bankruptcy, Nineteen Seven-Six
Nineteen Eighty-Eight became a clothing store fix..

But, poor Abercrombie and Fitch,
Poor Abercrombie and Fitch
"Jersey Shore" gave them..a scratch they can't itch
A & F now demands, wear no brands with their stitch,
Poor Abercrombie and Fitch..
Poor Abercrombie and Fitch..

It's a strange "Situation"..they've asked Mike to switch,
Wear anything else,..but our duds, "Mister Sitch",
They have offered big cash..if their clothes he don't wear
To guys like George Clooney,..they'd give two free pair

Poor Abercrombie and Fitch,
Oh, poor Abercrombie and Fitch,
Is it all smart PR,..or an advertise Niche?
Do you think A & F has..a good cause to bitch?
Poor Abercrombie and Fitch..
Poor Abercrombie and Fitch..

Now, it seems shortly after..the news story broke
Their company stock had..a nine percent choke
Much more than coincidence,..says the news pitch,
It's "Jersey" fan discord, with Abercrombie and Fitch..

Poor Abercrombie and Fitch,
Oh, poor Abercrombie and Fitch,
It must be a kick..to be that filty rich
You can pay image blackmail, like this..with no twitch
Poor Abercrombie and Fitch..
Oh, Poor Abercrombie and Fitch..

I hate that store but I'm glad to hear at least they have morals and don't want those filthy douchebags on the Jersey Shore to tarnish their crap. I'm still waiting for you to do a Steve Jobs tribute because you're always quick and on the money with your tributes after somebody has passed away.

Thanks, Matthias...Yeah, Mr. Jobs..thought about it...there were a couple other good tributes submitted last week

Well that's funny. Abercrombie has a problem with Jersey Shore wearing their clothes. . .anything for attention I guess when your ship is sinking. . .oy

It's their clothing line and reputation that are at stake. Jersey Shore is what sucks as a raunchy MTV reality show and I don't blame A&F for taking action at all. How would you like your line paraded by scumbags? JS has taken other endorsement offers, so they can wear something else besides A&F's well-known lines.

AFW, you seem to be getting more topical, and I commend you for that. More than that, though, I commend you for a very entertaining and enlightening parody, particularly the Fitch/niche/b*tch verse. I don't shop at A&F, I don't watch JS, and I DKTOS, but the parody and comments got my attention. I also was struck by A&F's explanation that this reality show did not fit the "aspirational nature of the A&F brand." Just what is the aspirational nature of a T-shirt?

Watch JS and then print a retraction.
AFW - October 12, 2011 - Report this comment
Thanks, Dave, Luver, and John J...I don't watch JS, not that it offends me, or anything..just not my bag, but there's always an audience for any type of tv, reality, or otherwise. On the other foot,(hands get too much credit) I don't buy A&F brands, either...Thanks, all, for votes and interesting comments. It's always good to stir up some interest.

Good work... I hate reality TV with all my heart (COPS, Jail, Pawn Stars, American Pickers and Storage Wars are more my style), would like to put the whole JS cast & crew in a room full of Zyklon-B, and don't even buy A&F clothes used, but can appreciate this fiasco as good parody material. Love your work as always, and 5s.

Thanks, Andria..PS,AP, and SW are shows I watch a lot, too
