Hoarders uses Kathy Griffin’s praise to encourage Emmy voters to vote for it, not her
A hilarious ad urging Emmy voters to cast their ballots for A&E’s Hoarders uses Kathy Griffin’s praise for the show as its evidence that the series should win, which would mean beating Kathy Griffin’s Bravo reality show.
Deadline reports that “A&E is using some of the praise Griffin has heaped on Hoarders in the docu-series’ Emmy campaign,” praise which includes commentary during her stand-up. The hilarious print ad features three quotes from Kathy about Hoarders, including, “Hoarders is so fucking fantastic!”
The campaign is clearly tongue-in-cheek; in smaller print at the bottom, the ad says, “Congratulations to our fellow nominees, especially Kathy Griffin.”
