Quiznos Commercials

Why does Quiznos not want me to buy their food? First there was the guy who suckled a wolf... Then there were those little scary things, that I later found out were called spongmonkeys. They looked like tumors with teeth. Now there's scary talking baby. Not that I can eat Quiznos, but I would totally boycott them if I could. Well, I guess I do actually but it is more effective if I were a Quiznos eater to begin with.

I read an article about how their entire goal with the ad campaigns, particularly the spongemonkey, was brand recognition. It was a resounding success in that regard, but I think it is time to establish a new goal, perhaps likability is a good one.

My new biggest peeve might be how often I agree with Michelle.

Recognizing their brand usually means I change the channel during their commercials because they make my head hurt. And I'll never eat there because I hate the commercials.

This is marketing gone bad.

How sad that they really are going for likeability and instead are freaking me the fuck out. Seriously. I find baby cute, but the 'grafting it [the mouth and chin] seamlessly onto Bob' isn't happening. The mouth is what freaks me out the most.
