    Yup. The crooked-toothed sombrero-wearing, guitar-strumming "SpongeMonkeys" singing, "We love dee subs.. dee Quiznos Subs... Bring in any coupon.. and get a dollar off".

    I actually loved those commercials.. thought it was a riot! Unfortunately (for Quiznos) a good part of the American public didn't. And reflected that by NOT eating there.

    Ate at Quiznos only twice.. it's aight. Gotta' admit, the roast beef with Au Jus is tasty. Grew up eating at Subway, so I prefer there.

    What do you folks think of Quiznos "Baby Bob" mascot? Love 'em or lose 'em?
    I really dig it. The raspy adult voice is perfect.

    They just need to work on matching the kid's body language and facial expressions a bit more. It still looks like talking lips plastered on a "still", like they do with celebrity mugs on the Conan OBrien show.

    We LOVED that commercial. My husband downloaded it onto the kids' computer and they'd play it nonstop, and sing it, too. It was ear-blistering! But ya know, I have eaten at Quiznos twice in my life, thanks to a coupon. Who needs that much bread?

    I'm from the Philly area in South Jersey. You DO NOT toast a hoagie. No friggin way. Not even a cheese steak. Whatsamatta with those guyz? And then the other abomination: mayo or mustard on a hoagie? Where is my HIT MAN when I need him?

    Re: Least Favorite National TV Ads

    I know several national ads have already been mentioned here, and I'd probably agree with most of them being "least favorite."

    To me what is most irksome are those ad logos and promos they insert on the bottom of the TV screen promoting the next show or some upcoming event or worst a product when the program, movie, TV series or whatever is running. I especially hate the ones that animate themselves causing a distraction from the content that you thought the regular ads were already paying for!

    It's already bad enough that the networks themselves have to leave reminder bugs of who they are in the corner of the screens, but those animated bugs take the cake.

    Also ruins things if you want to record something to save for later (which I rarely do nowdays because of logo and animation overload).

    depressing thing is; this site stands to make millions.
    That's exactly why they roll the dice with national advertising.

    Okay, I'll bite, Helen!
    Lamisil, where the animated 'fungus' lifts up the toe nail and crawls under it. I turn it off everytime. Gross...gross...gross! Notice, tho', that I remember the name of the product. That's all that matters in advertising!

    BTW...a belated Happy Birffday!

    Hate hate hate any and all of the recent www.vehix.com ads.
    I'm usually multitasking when I watch TV, so no ad has really caught my eye enough to make me stop whatever else I'm doing to watch it.

    Re: Horrible commercial

    Anything’s better that those talking rats ala Beavis and Butt-Head, yuck. I have to grudgingly give them points for originality but after the n-th viewing it's just obnoxious.

    speaking of repititious, watching cheap seats

    on espnc most every nite, and each and every commercial break has the same damned commercials over and over.
    A1 steaksauce where that creepy guy eats at a stranger's table, and the lady doesn't raise hell. teflon car care. the car shakes mud off.
    (don't understand it: "keep your car looking pit crew perfect" hey a pit crew's job isn't to keep the hood spotless or the tires wetblack looking!)
