Every time I see this weird and annoying Quiznos ad featuring an all-kitten brass band, which they awkwardly call “Singimals,” I’m very tempted to spray the TV.
What’s that on those poor kitties’ heads? Granny wigs?
And the “Three Blind Mice” soundtrack? There isn’t a cat even mentioned in that song. It would have made more sense to use singing rats in sunglasses. They might not have had to look far to find the talent (if you get my drift).
Oops! Too late. They’ve already used some sort of rodent life form, and it makes less sense than kittens, if that’s even possible…
I can just imagine Quiznos’ meeting with their “Mad Men”…
Quiznos: Why cats?
Ad Guy: They’re even cuter than vermin with bad teeth. Everybody knows if you want something to sell, you put cats on it.
Q: But if you say “cats” in our business, people think Chinese restaurant and start to feel nauseous.
AG: We’re going to change all that. Just trust us. This ad is golden.
It wouldn’t surprise me if Quiznos used the same jokers to design their bizarre website that jumps around and makes swoopy noises. Whose attention are they trying to grab with that?
It would seem that Quiznos’ target market is babies. Babies who eat subs.
