I’m not a big fan of the Jared series of commercials for Subway. I mean, good job and all, but we’ve seen this guy for a loooooooong time now – it’s been years, hasn’t it? So I’m tired of him. I demand new commercials constantly. In fact, if I’ve seen a commercial – even one I like – more than three times, it’s too much. There ought to be a law that requires either new commercials every week or no commercials at all.
Anyway, I’m tired of Jared. But they’ve got this new series now where people from all walks of life are wondering what Jared would do in their particular situation. There’s a judge, a skydiver, and some other people. They’re actually enjoyable, as far as commercials go. I like that I’m not sure I’m watching a Subway commercial until a little way in. But I’m loving this one with the skydiver. He’s talking about how he’s 90 seconds into a jump and both of his chutes fail and then he wonders what Jared would do. Quick cut to Jared. He is screaming. He takes a small break and then screams again. Then back to the skydiver and then to the Subway logo.
It strikes me as funny, and I don’t care who knows it.
