Subway not dropping Michael Phelps

Megan Driscoll, rep for Subway, responded to allegations that the company was dropping its endorsement deal with Michael Phelps. Despite removing his name from their website, Megan said, “Like most Americans, and like Michael Phelps himself, we were disappointed in his behavior. Also like most Americans, we accept his apology. Moving forward, he remains in our plans.” Visa, Speedo, Omega and PureSports are also sticking by Phelps. The only company to drop him so far is Kellogg’s.

Kellogg’s should think this through. Rolling papers as cereal box prizes. Weed shaped cereal. A list of the health benefits of marijuana printed on the back of their boxes. They’re missing the perfect opportunity to jump on the stoner bandwagon.

Of course Subway is sticking with him. Subway and Taco Bell are primed for late nite munchie runs!

For them, his picture smoking a bowl is an advertizment opportunity. They are thinking of getting that dolphin to use a Subway bowl next time. OR him and Ex-Fatty Jerrod in a room getting high together. That would be sweet.
