Michael Phelps Likes $5 Footlongs
Apparently, the Beijing Golden Boy can’t get enough of that incredible Subway jingle, and so, he’s decided to endorse their product. Phelps will be joining other professional athletes — But wait, isn’t he still an amateur? I don’t understand Olympic rules. — like Reggie Bush, Ryan “MVP” Howard and Michael Strahan pitching the product that made Jared famous and commercial jingles fun again; at least for me.
Mr. Phelps and SUBWAY(R) are a natural fit because they are both advocates of active and healthy lifestyles. Through his Michael Phelps Foundation, Mr. Phelps promotes a healthy, active lifestyle and advocates swimming for children. During his travel for training, meets and races, he takes advantage of the 30,000 SUBWAY(R) locations.
“SUBWAY(R) restaurants have always given me the options that I am looking for – whether that’s healthy sandwiches before a big meet or the tasty meatball sub that I treat myself with,” stated Michael Phelps. “I was ready to take my SUBWAY(R) fan-dom to the next level – I really think of SUBWAY(R) as a champion food option.”
I hope that “champion food option” doesn’t become their catchphrase. The $5 footlong song is hotter than “Crank Dat” and I don’t want Subway screwing around with something so golden. Not even for something equally golden (Phelps, not the phrase).
