Internet bloggers are calling Quiznos'
new gay oven ad “disturbing” and even pornographic.
Said one blogger at TVSquad.com:
“The new Quiznos commercial is probably the closest we'll get to a
gay porn flick in a mainstream sub shop ad.”
The new ad features a sexy male oven
asking a male sandwich maker to “put it in me, Scott.” The oven
is begging for a second go around with Quiznos' foot-long torpedo
And when the Quiznos worker initially
rejects the oven's proposition, he looks down at his crotch,
ostensibly saying the box was too hot for him.
“It's either a tasteless exercise in
homophobic humor or it's camp genius,” wrote Jim Edwards at
Bnet.com, a blog
dedicated to the ad biz.
“[Y]ou'd be hard-pressed to forget
the point: That Quiznos has foot-long meat tubes just waiting to be
jammed in the hotbox for you,” wrote David Griner at AdFreak,
an Ad Week blog.
The spot was created by Quiznos' new ad
