Ugh!  Does anyone else HATE that song?  Does anyone else wonder who advised the people at Subway that this was a good ad campaign?  I want to run screaming from the room when I hear or see this ad.

It's a cheap and annoying ad, but the price is right.

Hey, welcome, Clownface3.
 
The song (and I use that noun advisedly!) makes me want to run naked down the street, shrieking filthy words.  I HATE it.
Love endures all.

This entire ad is trash. Of course I think of Subway as the fast food in subs.

You know, that's what I thought they were saying but I figured I was hearing things. Ewww.
 
Why would a sandwich shop need to resort to using that line? They sell sandwiches, not BJs. Whenever I hear that line all I can think about is the skanky hooker from that movie. Which has a 'Clockwork Orange' effect on my digestive system.
I swear to God I'll pistol whip the next person who says Shenanigans!!!

As I posted on the "other" ("fake") commercials I hate board, why is it that Godzilla holds his hands shoulder width apart if he is the size of the buildings.  Wouldn't that be more like 50 feet?

Wouldn't it be called a 50 foot party sub? LOL


BTW I've recently discovered a new way to respond to these ads, every time they come on I flip 'em da bird (the middle finger) with both of my hands and sing:

onnnnnnnnnnne dolla,
onnnnnnnnnnne dolla
onnnnnnnnnnnnne dollla birddddddddiiiiiiie!!!!!!!!!!

LOL

They still make the subs all half ass, going skimpy on the condiments and not spreading them out evenly.  You ask them for extra anything, and they plop like one or two more pickles down on it.  I want to walk behind the counter, shove the so-called "sandwich artist" out of the way, and build the sandwich properly.....just like they probably make their own when they eat one.
 
Customer service has gone down the tubes...."the customer is always right" doesn't mean squat anymore....PLUS they have the gall to have a tip jar at the register.  LOL that's rich

When ever I see this, I think.

There were 5 of them and they were THIS LONG.

Then I can't stop laughing. So I guess I like the commercial, but only because it triggers that.

$5 footlong isn't even a good deal for me.  I am a vegetarian.  I get the veggie delite*, which is normally under $5 anyway.  Last year the subway near my office had a coupon deal for an entire subway meal for $5.  I'm soo not impressed with the $5 footlong.

I remember when the most expensive sandwich was the Seafood and Crab, which at the time was a little over $5.  I miss those days.

*I'm still pissed off that they got rid of the veggie and cheese sandwich (to make room for the veggie delite).  All they did was get rid of 4 of the slices of cheese so they can charge me extra for getting the proper amount of cheese.

The meatball and cold cut combo used to be 2.99 for a footlong, and they'd put on all the veggies the bread could hold.  Indeed times have changed.

These commercials aren't bad.
1. The song is original, it's not a ruined classic
2. It is simple and catchy. They achieved their goal of making you think of a sub constantly if the song is stuck in your head
3. The visuals are simple and colorful, and reinforce the message-Footlong subs at Subway are now $5
4. Jared is not in them
5. They are not insulting or condescending. No dumb daddies or sassy black girls, just simple depictions of a cop, a weather girl and godzilla, or a gorilla, baseball players, a beauty queen and a stock trader.
6. It's kind of a fun innuendo, but not too obvious

As far as commercials go, $5 footlong is ok in my book, and I have been going to subway more often :)

Welcome, but you should have started a thread in the commercials I like section.

5 dollar foot longs are delicious, but the commercials are extremely irritating. They act like flashing your hand then showing what you think 12 inches looks like with both hands is going to become a new dance crazy or something.

Why does Godzilla care about subway?
Why does a random Japanese girl care about subway?
Why does a beauty queen care about subway?

It makes no sense, they could have made a much simpler commercial and got their point across in a less faux dance craze sort of way.
