CNN names Mike (The Situation) Sorrentino one of it's 'people of the day'……

'Jersey Shore' star Mike Sorrentino's tweets have been causing quite a stir across the country.

All of this becuase of a commerical with Peyton Manning?.……..


“The Situation” just keeps getting stranger.

Abs-fab “Jersey Shore” star Michael Sorrentino was cited Wednesday as one of CNN‘s most intriguing people of the day, hours after he tweeted about doing a commercial withPeyton Manning.

The 28-year-old Staten Islander first informed his fans of a planned trip to Los Angeles for television appearances with Jay Leno and Ellen DeGeneres.

“Then its off to MIami to shoot commercial w Peyton MAnning for SUperbowl,” he wrote in a post that was both ungrammatical and unconfirmed.

There was no hint about the product involved, although the possible pairing of four-time NFL MVP and “The Situation” is undeniably an odd couple.

Colts quarterback Manning has endorsed OreosGatorade, Reebok and MasterCard in an assortment of commercials – including spots with A-listers like his brother, Eli, andJustin Timberlake.

At this time last year, Sorrentino was sitting at home watching those commercials.

The success of his MTV reality show has certainly boosted his profile, though CNN’s designation was not the greatest of honors.

Other selected with him were Michael Jackson‘s doctor and suspended NBA gunslingerGilbert Arenas.

This from CNN……..

“The Situation”: That’s Michael Sorrentino’s nickname. Well, the nickname he has given to his famous abdominal muscles. You may have seen his abs and heard his remarkable way with words on the MTV reality show, “Jersey Shore,” which chronicles the charming antics of eight housemates as they search for the meaning of life at various summer drinking parties. The program has also offended some viewers for its portrayal of Italian-American stereotypes.

TheSmokingGun.com found records at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office indicating that there are now two applications to secure a trademark for the anatomical nickname. One comes from Sorrentino’s brother, Mark, who operates Naughty Limited, a Las Vegas purveyor of adult web sites that wants to put “The Situation” on underwear and t-shirts. The Web site reports that the other application was filed by someone from south New Jersey named Matthew Hunter, who is targeting the name for bathing suits, tennis wear, and tracksuits.
