In the new Subway ad campaign, the singers' annoying "FIVE DOLLAR FOOTLONG" jingle has been muted somewhat, but there are only eight footlongs that are priced at five dollars.  Only the Veggie Delight is even remotely healthy if you are wanting to watch your weight.  With food and gas prices continuing to rise, it'll be only a matter of time before Subway retires this campaign for good (hopefully by football season this year).  YAWN!

AHHHHHHHHH!

I can't stand this f'n commercial. It gets in my head when I wake up, eat breakfast, go to work, at work, on my lunch break, on the way home, watching tv, eating dinner, but not in my sleep yet thankfully.

And both of those rediculous Taco Bell commercials. "Gimme somethin' cheesy wit a bunch of beef" and "Only 79-89-99-ey-ey-ey!!"

FLASH--A new Subway commercial has started airing.  Thankfully the new ad doesn't have the annoying jingle at all.  It's just a simple, straightforward approach to the five dollar subs that should have been airing all along.

They already raised the price of the $2.49 special, then got rid of it entirely. Subway's getting too expensive for what they sell.

Truthfully...I *like* Subway. Their breakfast sammies are good, too; not tasteless, yet filling WITHOUT leaving me feeling lethargic...they can have a few of my dollars as I can actually perform up to my own professional standards (they ARE high) without being distracted by little things like 'hunger', or 'needing a siesta'...

It's the NFL football playoffs and they're still playing that crap where a bunch of so called "regular" people are trying to sing that stupid jingle about $5 footlong sandwiches and all they do is sing offkey and giggle a lot.  This is one of the most annoying commercials I've ever seen.

Yep! Wink And why is it they have to giggle and laugh so much. The firefighters can't even get through two words without cracking up. What's so funny anyway? Stupid!!!

Those are the phoniest "real people" ever.   All that absurd laughing has to be staged.    It just has to.   Nobody can possibly be laughing at a stupid Subway jingle.   Unless they are laughing at how STUPID it is!!LOL

I've never ate one of those Subway footlong sandwiches, but I'd be willing to try......if they didn't play that stupid annoying commercial on TV so much.

In the scenes with the two "office girls" - the tall one on the right is kind of attractive. So at least there's that one redeeming quality about these commercials.
That's a bleepin' dead alien body if I ever bleepin' saw one.

It's not even a song that's easy to sing -- there's no real tune, just repetition.  So the fact that they're milking the song and using it every which way possible shows that they're lacking ideas.  And having "regular" people sing it even though it's not a "singable" song shows how desperate they are!

The commercials are annoying enough, but in reality, are these subs even worth $5? I don't even think they're worth $1. Subway has the crappiest sandwiches. The ingredients are cold and taste like they're prepackaged and frozen. The bread is always stale or mushy.

Overpriced garbage. Support Firehouse Subs. Not only are their subs extremely fresh and of high quality, but a portion of the money the company makes goes to fire emergency services, since the company was founded by firemen.

Couldn't agree more with the person saying Subway's subs are crappy - I will never go back after I found a SHORT BLACK CURLY HAIR BAKED INTO MY BREAD.  Yeah, you read that right.  I almost vomited.  This jingle needs to go IMMEDIATELY when that song gets stuck in my head it makes me want to punch someone. 
 
And agreed, there's no way the people singing the song are laughing because they think it's funny.  It's pathetic. 
Bring me the head of a pig, and a goblet of something cool and refreshing

It's even worse now.
 
Now they have some clueless guy walking into a subway saying "I don't know what I want." Dude, you're in Subway! I don't know you, but I can tell you what you want, and I bet it's a sub! Next thing you know, a flashmob of 20 kids come in and do a coordinated dance to the 5 dollar foot long jingle. This doesn't happen. Ever.
 
The out of key people I could tolerate. The High School musicalesque production? Make it stop.

I hate the dancing, too! Maybe if they all ran in, mobbed him, and started singing the $5 footlong jingle it would make more sense. But the coordinated dance is a bit much. It's not even good dancing.

Five dollars is too expensive! you can get a better deal at Publix. Wait, weren't foot longs four dollars last year? and is a medium mountain do an extra $1.25?
