Pop Culture: Five Dollar Foot Longs

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.

  1. I didn’t think that. I thought Subway was hurting for money now that people are trying to cut back on spending in eating out. You are crazy, Girl!

  2. Snob I have some sites for you: match.com, chemistry.com, eharmony.com, adultfriendfinder.com (lol), chasingthebigone.com (ROFL)

  3. Hehe. I don’t see the sexual subtexts, but I know I can’t get that damned song out of my head (of course, they’ve achieved their marketing purpose…). Whenever it comes on–it’s over for me. You can hear me singing that damned song hours later–and my husband just looks at me like me like I’m crazy because he knows I’m very “jingle-prone.” –Doesn’t take much, and this one gets me every time.
