Sandwich Dipping Sauce + Bearded Man Desperate for Money and/or Attention = Ew

I can only guess as to what this ad for Quiznos is trying to plant in the consumer’s brain, but here’s what I took away from it:

1) Super-weird, esoteric humor (a la Mr. Show, Tim and Eric and, every so often, the last 10 minutes of SNL) is now deemed an acceptable tool for selling fast food.

2) This sandwich definitely has hair in it.

So, if those were your intentions, ad people (ridding our culture of the final flimsy barrier between the underground and the commercial, while ensuring us that the new Chicken-Bacon Dipper is loaded with bristly red beard hair) then allow me to congratulate you on a job well done!

As for all you comedic artists out there looking to do something irreverent and anti-mainstream, it may be time to dust off the old wacky suspenders and start telling jokes again.
