Ad of the Day: Quizno’s

Quizno’s (2009): “Tasty Torpedo”

Not sure how closely y’all have been paying attention to ads from Quizno’s over the years, but there’s sort of a consensus (at least in my office): they’re definitely strange. We’ve seen furry, unknown creatures (maybe lemurs?) and various “Singimals”—dogs, cats and squirrels. Currently on Quizno’s YouTube channel, they have THE strangest spots promoting their Bacon Chicken Dipper (click here to see my most favorite one outta the four).
