Quiznos returns to horrible tuneless critters

The psychedelic moose from Fallon's Maynards campaign looks like a Cannes Grand Prix winner compared to Quiznos's new singing kittens from WongDoody. It's like the fast-food chain's old Spongmonkeys spots, but with cats. A press release points out that the tabbies are intended as "fun and humorous," which is helpful, because there's no way of telling that by actually watching. The campaign is dubbed "Singimals," and even that sounds tone-deaf and off-key. There's a reference to this being the "first" ad, which implies more are forthcoming. Oh man, that's a reality I just can't face. I'll have whatever the Maynards moose is having.
