While I think it's cute too, and don't think our lawmakers really need to be concerning themselves with ad campaigns abroad, I'm saddened to see this considering that Subway is a CT based American company.
Could we be getting just a wee bit too "sensitive"? Or is it just because it was in Germany? I thought this ad was kinda funny! Actually, I think it's hilarious. Too bad they bowed to pressure. Lighten up a bit Tom!
The Fat Lady Liberty Statue
Sandwich chain Subway Restaurants Monday said it was ending a promotion at its German franchises that showed an image of a fat Statue of Liberty.
The promotion sparked outrage from a leader in the U.S. Congress.
At issue was a tray liner at Subway's German franchises promoting the documentary "Super Size Me," which links the U.S. fast-food industry, particularly Subway rival McDonald's Corp. to America's obesity epidemic.
