Spitzer Scandal Spun to Promote Virgin Mobile


"I'm tired of being treated like a number..." laments NY Governor Eliot Spitzer in this print ad for Virgin Mobile in Canada.

The copy goes on to read "At Virgin Mobile, you're more than just a number. When you call us we'll treat you like a person, not a client. Whether you're #9 or #900, you'll get hooked up with somebody who'll finally treat you just how you want to be treated."

How very wicked. But revelations of Spitzer's place in the queue (Client #9) at a busted prostitution service come at an opportune time for Virgin Mobile, which only revealed its preoccupation with American politics this month.

Just another instance of Virgin behaving badly.

I feel really bad for spitzer...
I'm in no way thinking what he did is right (no matter how hot the "others" are), but who among here isn't guilty of a bad deed or two? Granted he's a public figure and should have been more careful but as a guy who've been through a shit load of trouble, I must say I feel darn lucky I'm far from being popular.
Didn't he think about the risks? No more than a cigarette smoker thinks of getting lung cancer, probably. That's how we all are in our weakest and lowest points... Some just get caught with their pants down, some don't.
What's more disturbing for me in cases like these though is the way the general public enjoys the downfall of promising and (pre-scandal) admired individuals. For most of us, seeing someone fall from a place we wished we were in is quite pleasing. Is it right? I dunno. Is it wrong? No idea.
More good points were raised about this in here
