And how many subs are they paying you to shill for them?
Why was this moved from A&S?
This ad is relevant to A&S because it deals with car crash culture as comedy, which can potentially influence people in thinking driving recklessly is funny or safe to do
Commercials get people to buy products, influence body perception, and more. Certainly commercials have an impact on driving behavior.
I did not see anything wrong with this commercial, though. If they said "Rush over to Subway", etc., you might have a case. It was just weak, but not unethical.
Campione Del Mondo Immaginario
Is this the crap that goes on in A&S these days? I am glad I don't visit the rest of the forums anymore.
My Bikes: 2009 Breezer Uptown EX | 1980 Miyata Six Ten | 1970 Hercules
Wife's Bikes: 2008 Globe City 7 | 1972ish Peugeot UO-18 (in progress)
None of the people in the ad were on their way to Subway, they were just passers-by.
But yes, Subway is telling people it's ok to drive recklessly, and destroy public and private property.
They're also telling us that falling down doesn't hurt, and talking to sandwiches is normal.
Get over it.
This has to be the dumbest commercial I've seen in a while - dumber than the OP's Subway commercial.
I found both commercials comical.
What I don't find funny are all the slobs driving while eating subway and slurping dr. prune juice.
