    what is with these bizarre sandwich commercials? Did Subway have to "outdo" the wolf suckling of Quiznos?

    I know as soon as I saw the 70's gay porn star guy walking down the staircase that something was up.

    Is it entertaining? I guess, in a train-wreck 10-car pile up kind of way.

    Does it make me want to go eat a Subway sandwich? No, it makes me want to go scrub my eyes with AJAX.

    yeah, weird.

    I'm guessing the joke is "..well if she gets to use the 'it's okay I had subway' excuse, then I can use it too!".
    But uh, it looks more like an excuse to stick a gezer wearing a cheerleader outfit dancing to "Hey Mickey" in a commercial.
    that joke is old tho.

    Sun Times doesn't like it either.

    Okay... eew... i can't believe that i was subjected to such a monstrosity. That in no way makes me want to eat a subway sandwich... nor does it make me feel bad when i go out and have fatty foods. or rather it doesn't make me feel any worse than i already do.

    I gotta say, I loved the spot. It's fresh for the category. I mean, sure it's weird and it doesn't make me want to buy a sandwich, but at least its memorable. The Jared stuff was getting too boring.
