    Here's a link to a MSN news article about those commercials. You aren't the only one that find them wierd. Originally posted by me to the forums at Grim City, www.grimcitiy.com,

    It doesn't really explain what they are but at least you know you aren't alone.
    Enjoy,

    David? Is that you?

    (One of my fellow dispatchers, who never gets riled up about anything, just goes nuts when that commercial comes on. "Geez, the president of the company must have been on vacation when they came up with that idea. Who would think that a singing rat roadkill would make you want to eat at Quizno's???")

    All I wanna know is, what kind of drugs/illicit substances were the marketing "gurus" on when they came up with these commercials? I haven't minded some of the stupid commercials on tv...but this takes the cake. I end up changing the channel whenever it comes on. My guess is they're marketing these commercials towards people with the "munchies"..if ya know what I mean

    Quizno's has some of the best sandwiches around, but the most annoying commercials I've ever seen. The current one's really bad, but then, their "unfair match-up" commercials last year weren't much better.

    I'd say they need a new ad agency, but you know what, we're talking about the commercials here. Therefore, the ad agency has to some extent accomplished it's objective (though it may have backfired if StayBack and Jay's thoughts on the "rats" are widespread").

    Yep, they accomplished what they wanted. These stupid commercials definitely stand out from the pack of babble.

    And hell if I wanted to read things on commercials I would watch the Latin Channel and kill the sound and look at the "Eye Candy" OOOLALA

    I have to agree with you on that one firemedic53. I live just over the border from NY in MA, and we get NY stations here. Also..gotta love "Resnick's" commercials too. Is it just me or does that guy look like Wallace Shawn's long lost twin?

    Now come on boys and girls, do you mean to tell me that dancing road kill on an acid trip doesn't just make you want to go out and buy one of those subs full of red meat in the background?

    It is one of those things that make you go Hmmmmmmm.

    BTW, does anyone know what on earth thos "things" are saying?

    I don't know what they are but they've got us all talking about Quiznos don't they?

    On that alone, the ad is a success, regardless of how stupid it may be.

    By the way, my wife has the urge to puke every time it comes on.

    smfd,
    actually thats one of many commercials they have using those creatures. and they are all equally disturbing. I just make a point of avoiding businesses which use such wierd gimmics. I figure that if enough people do the same thing them the drop in sales will convince them to rethink their marketing tatics.
