I am Steven Slater's body double


TMZ, that paragon of soul-enriching journalism, has reported on the extremely unsurprising news that JetBlue employee/temper tantrumer Steven Slater has been offered a reality-show TV deal. And to illustrate said piece, they have done this:

Yes, sir. That is my jacket, my shirt, my fake microphone, my body!!!

The original photo here, taken by the great Clint Hild.
Jacket, of course, designed by BQT door girl Sherry.

What I really want to know is, how did they stumble upon that picture of me? Was the photo-composite artist already familiar with me and thought I'd be a good go-to body double? Or did they google a specific phrase and there I was? Interesting, since Slater is not in line to host a game show. Really, my body is pretty irrelevant in the context.

And for the record, I have no interest in watching such a show. Nor will I ever sell that fabulous jacket to the show's costume department. So there.

UPDATE: The world is on my side on this. Or at least The Awl is.

I suggest you deploy the slide, grab a beer, and run away with a lawsuit.

I posted this on FB, but they're not in the wrong here. You're a stock photo. If it's against the photographer's wishes, you'd have to take it up with istockphoto.

Are you outraged that The Awl referred to your jacket as "tacky"?
