Will Prince Sue Over ‘Insulting’ Diet Dr. Pepper Parody Commercial [VIDEO]
The latest commercial from Diet Dr. Pepper introduces a character named "Lil' Sweet" (portrayed by American Idol alum Justin Guarini), a character who bears a striking resemblance to a specific pop superstar who could also be described as, well, lil'.
Guarini's take on Prince, despite being a dead on impression, could hardly be described as flattering. So, the question remains. Will the music legend, who values his image as much as his privacy and who has never graced the screen in an advertisement of any kind, unleash his vast legal team in an attempt to halt further airing of the commercial? Has Diet Dr. Pepper struck advertising gold with the Lil' Sweet / Prince character?
No definite answers yet. But just to be on the safe side - if you haven't seen the commercial yet - watch it while you can!
