You didn't include a choice for what I think - those things are disgusting! No way I'm eating at a place that might have nasty, uglier than the usual rodents like that in their kitchen!!! GROSS!!

Gotta go with a POTC quote:

Will Turner: This is either madness... or brilliance.

Jack Sparrow: It's remarkable how often those two traits coincide.

That said, I had to go with just plain strange!

They definitely look like mutant rodents -- some biological experiment gone horribly wrong. However, I have called people in from the other room to see the commercials and have talked about them to people, so if it's all about buzz, it's working.

Personally I think those commercials are pure genius. They crack me up everytime I see them.

THEY HAVE A PEPPER BAR!!!

A local TV station did a "news" story on the commercials about a week ago. (It must have been a really slow news day!) But the creature (rodent) is actually a Spin Monkey (I think that is what they called it).

apparently these Spin Monkey's are all the rage in the UK and the Quizno's ad dudes decided to give a whirl here in the US.

The are disgusting looking to me - but you gotta admit, you do remember them. My musically challenged (read that can't carry a tune in a bucket) husband loves them and is always ?singing? "Bring in your coupons" or "They got a a Pepper Bar"

You know, I used to like Quiznos's. It's back to Subway and Charlie's for me now. It's simply disgusting and an obvious unrelated gimic.

The Quiznos Commercial is one of the worst I've seen - It's an automatic turn-off! I wouldn't dare eat a sub for a business who has rodents bouncing all over that you can't understand and distastefull!

We don't have a Quiznos around here (that I know of), but the commercials come on TV here. The first time I saw it, I thought "What the h*** are those things". They look like rabid hamsters. I find them rather humorous, actually.

I think we are wrongly insulting rodents. I've heard that these loathsome creatures are, in fact, sponge monkeys.

Anyone remember a short lived commercial Quiznos had a while back where the guy was raised by wolves or something. The only thing I remember about it was the disturbing image of a man nursing off a mother wolf alongside her pups. I am not sure if they are trying to gross people out or create publicity.

Considering that there is a thread entirely dedicated to discussion of a Quizno's commercial, I would say their Marketing department is doing something *very* right.
