Quiznos thinks a dirty-talking oven, new phallic sandwich, and overall erotic themed commercial makes me hungry? For a sandwich?


Burger King thinks women dancing suggestively, a rap song about square butts, the "king" grabbing his crotch, and a closing scene that I still can't catch the words to after replaying it 20 times (bootie is oody??), is going to get me there for the Sponge Bob kids meal that is being promoted?

McDonald's tag line for the Big Mac is "There's Only One Big Mac." Four years ago we developed "There's Only One Oklahoma" for University of Oklahoma athletics.
