You can bet Subway wishes they had a Men In Black-style Neuralyzer so we can forget a few things, the main one being that Jared Fogle ever existed, but now that they have a fantastic $6 footlong deal, they’re probably hoping we forgot the $5 footlong deals they engraved into our heads.
Subway announced that its $6 classic footlong deal would start Thursday, Feb. 4, and carry through the month of February, but people cannot forget the $5 deal.

It’s your own fault, Subway. Thanks to your outstanding marketing, I’ll never forget the little $5 footlong jingle:
Oh, you thought we forgot that cute little song that would play during every single commercial break of NFL games?
Yeah, I noticed when you tried to sneak in that extra dollar back in 2013, but I thought it was a phase. There’s no way you were going to train us so well, get us used to a certain standard, then jack up the price, right?
Well, at least you guys offered an explanation:
@ArsonByLarson We launched the $5 footlong in 2007. Since then our costs have gone up greatly, but we try to balance that with promotions.

I guess you had to jack up the price a bit, but the new deal’s still a bit upsetting. On the bright side, it’s still not as upsetting as this guy:
We knew $5 footlongs couldn’t last forever, but just don’t make the same mistake and have catchy commercials for the $6 footlong, because I promise you it’s going to take more than two years to get that song out of our heads.
