Michael Phelps plows ahead in Subway spot

This MMB spot for Subway, which rolled out a few weeks ago (and has upset official Olympic sponsor McDonald's), shows Michael Phelps en route to the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. (Does he know swimming is a Summer Olympics sport?) He crashes through the wall of a pool and "land-swims" through a field of wheat, though of course some have joked about it being a field of "weed." There's also a bag of baked chips at the end, and some have joked about "baked" being code for "toasted." No Phelps spot can have fewer than three drug references, intentional or not, so I'm counting the cameo by Jared Fogle, who gained a little weight recently. Case of the munchies, Jared?
