Quizno's Attempts $5 Sub Too

Earlier, Megan posted about Subway's new $5 footlong deal and the commercial/jingle that goes with it. Well apparently it's made enough of a splash for Quizno's to directly retaliate. Personally, I hate commercials that directly attack a competitor, it's just annoying and uncreative. This particular spot attempts and fails at some humor in the beginning and then just goes on to say, 'Look we have $5 subs too, but with more meat. Take that Subway!' Yeah... not so creative. Granted, in general I like Quizno's better than Subway, and I'm not a fan of the $5 footlong jingle, but this Quizno's spot made them look like they're chasing after Subway. It's just plain sad.

I saw this spot over the weekend. It doesn't bother me as much as it bothers you. But I don't like watching that lady stick the $5 bill in her mouth. It gives me a gross, like, gagging sensation. Ick.

I think it's only their large deli favorites subs that are $5.
