Maybe it’s just me, but does this commercial have a ring of slightly quirky, sexually perverse subversiveness to it? I mean, I know Prince gave me this “Dirty Mind” so I just have to live with it, but something just isn’t right here. The song is sort of inane and hypnotic, like a They Might Be Giants or Stereolab track and the imagery is day-dreamingly pleasant (yet disturbing), but all these people doing the five finger salute followed by holding their hands at the approximation of 12 inches is just odd to me.
I’m not going to lie … It made me think of penises.
Is it just me or did anyone else go, “Man, I can’t go to Subway. They are serving up dick sandwiches.” I don’t mean to be crass. I’m just trying to keep it real, you know?
Subway commercial + calming, pseudo “Male enhancement” commercial music = monster penises. That’s all I’m saying.
