Like all of you, I wondered initially what the heck the Quizno's advertising department was doing. What are
those things, we all asked. I finally figured out one of them tonight.
The singer has the body of a tarsier that's sitting on a branch. If you don't know what this is, a tarsier is a small, nocturnal primate that lives amongst the trees. Do a search for some photos and you'll see what I mean. They added the bowler, the strange eyes, and a bizarre mouth to it. I don't know for sure what the guitar player is, but it's not a tarsier.
It's unfortunate that they resemble rodents or roadkill or other negative things, but at least one of them is a primate - just like you and me! I get the feeling from talking to co-workers and reading these posts that about 50% of the people enjoy the commercials in a sick sort of way (I do!), and the other 50% now refuse to go to Quizno's. Regardless, Quizno's has you talking about their restaurant. That
, to me, is great marketing. Oh, and I love their sandwiches!
