Quiznos Needs A New Ad Agency

Talking babies are freaking creepy. Easily amongst the worst commercials I've ever seen, in a new ad campaign premiering last night, Quiznos resurrected Baby Bob, a disturbing, yammering baby, to hawk their toasty sandwiches.

Where should I start? Baby Bob isn't funny. He's not cute, endearing, or easy to look at. The attempt to make Bob look like he's speaking fails miserably- even the Late Night With Conan O'Brien "Clutch Cargo" sketches do a better job. And, actually, the crux of the issue: Baby Bob is downright creepy. Why would his presence entice me to eat a Honey Bourbon Chicken on Wheat?

There's only one way to make my displeasure clear: In protest, I'm hitting Blimpie for lunch today.

3 other geekspeak:

  • My husband and I recoiled from the set each time this commercial was broadcast. He has actually said he'll never eat Quizno's again because this commercial was so fucking creepy. No anthropomorphic babies, please.

  • I think that the Quizno's "Baby Bob" is so cute. I acutally have baby-sat for the parents of the baby and can't get enough of the baby. TOO CUTE! For those of you who can't stand the commercials-know this-the baby is richer than all you and it's a 9 month old! So, go back to your cubicle/couch and have cry.
