Jami Bernard at WalletPop just posted, “Quiznos kittens are giving me nightmares,” and it includes this line…
“One blogger speculated that the ads were aimed at ‘babies.’”
I have no doubt the blogger in question is yours truly. The same feline blogger whose post in April brought Cats Working to the attention of the BBC and almost roped Karen into being my spokesperson on a radio show about Afghanistan.
Bernard believes the Quiznos ads may be aimed at pot smokers, but I wonder if the typical Quiznos’ hours of operation support that. Around here, they seem to be more of a daytime, sub-eating-baby-friendly environment.
Anyway, WalletPop also revealed the perp, uh, I mean, creator of this abominable ad campaign. It’s WangDoody, a Seattle-based ad agency Quiznos hired early this year.
Any company that would give itself a name like WangDoody probably does think cornering the market on nosh-craving pot smokers is a sound business strategy.
Anyway, I just wanted to let you know. Out of the mouths of cats…
