Subway Fresh Moment Referee Commercial

“An honest answer is like a kiss on the lips.” (Proverbs 24:26)

Okay, this TV ad featuring an honest referee is my new favorite football commercial, at least until the Super Bowl gets here! This is part of Subway’s “Fresh Moment” advertising campaign. And you have to admit, such honesty really is refreshing!

“I totally blew that call. In fact, I wasn’t even close. But don’t worry. I’ll penalize the other team … for no good reason … in the second half … to even things up.”

    True confessions: When I first saw this commercial I didn’t know it was a commercial and asked my husband, “Can they really do that?”

  2. Ray Fowler says:

    Mary – That’s really funny. The commercial does look pretty real, especially when it pops up in the middle of a football game.

    I’m just happy when there is a commercial I understand 🙂 I don’t watch much TV, so that probably makes it harder.

    The first year we got back from overseas, winter olympics were going on and I had to ask my husband to explain most of the ads. What was really scary was a month or so later, when (for some unexplainable reason) we were watching Nascar races. I understood ALL the commercials AND thought they were hilarious. It was at that point that I knew I was still a redneck at heart. You couldn’t university it out of me. You couldn’t enculturate it out of me. No matter how many countries I traveled to or how many languages I learned, I will forever and always be redneck. I’m not ashamed of that. It was just a funny recognition.

    I don’t particularly like Nascar (okay I’m not totally redneck 🙂 ), but the humor and the culture and everything that surrounds it–apparently I’m still right at home with it.

    eclexia – I must say, there are a lot of commercials out there that I don’t understand either. Sometimes I wonder if they make them ambiguous on purpose just to make you think about it.

    Great commercials, does anyone here know how well this commercial did on sales. If you have a web site link or something else can you reply with it?
