“Put it in me, Scott”

When I saw the commercial on TV I LOL’d:

Kudos to Quizno’s.

I think it has now been edited down to be safer for young viewers.

  1. Saw it just last night and made the remark that I bet the oven origianlly had a woman’s voice. Now instead of overly erotic, it’s just homo-erotic.

  2. I though it was funny – not to subtle, but very unexpected. I like the hint of 2001 too.

  3. The version of the commercial where the oven says “put it in me Scott” has been pulled- in the new version the oven says “I’m waiting for it Scott”…..

  4. The shock value has worn off.

  5. Before, it was funny. Edited, it’s just weird. The lighting, the tone… it was making fun of 70s/80s porn. Kids shouldn’t even understand it. That’s why it was funny; even the guy in the commercial didn’t understand until he was about to stick it in the oven. I remember growing up seeing stuff on TV that I didn’t understand, but the folks were laughing. I just assumed it’s because adults were weirdos. Trust me, it wasn’t a commercial that suddenly shed light on things like this.

    Kids shouldn’t understand the humor because they haven’t seen 70s/80s porn. More confusing is the fact that it’s a male voice for the oven, and a male sticking it in.

    If you’re saying commercials, indeed our media, shouldn’t be posting anything viewable by children that is even remotely sexual (like this commercial), I suggest you take a look at the children’s role-models. When I see 14 year old girls on the street wearing low jeans and thongs hanging out, it’s not because of a slightly homo-erotic Quiznos commercial. It’s because we cram Brittany Spears and other garbage down their throats, and tell them it’s OK. How can you tell a kid not to dress and act like that when we idolize them and make them millionaires???

    That made it more funny. The confused/shamed look on the employee made me LOL.

    “If you’re saying commercials, indeed our media, shouldn’t be posting anything viewable by children that is even remotely sexual (like this commercial),…”.

    I didn’t say anything like that in my post.

    I do think though that forcing kid to to grow up and bombarding them with sexual imagery is a bad thing. Most parents and adults drop the ball on this.
