Showdown At Subway: Jive Turkey Dance Club vs Funky Fresh Chicken Dance Club
I eat lunch at Subway every weekday. This week, I tried the (limited time) Autumn Carved Turkey sandwich. I really like it! It inspired me to create a new character. It inspired two, actually. I was thinking of "Rival Mascot" characters that are used for promotions, like Count Chocula, Frankenberry and Boo Berry cereals from General Mills. I want Subway to have characters, too. The first is Jive Turkey Dance Club. He is heavily influenced by Robert Crumb's Keep on Truckin'. Just imagine the Bee Gees song Jive Talkin' playing in Jive Turkey's commercial.
When I order the Autumn Carved Turkey at my Subway, I now ask for the Jive Turkey.
My regular sandwich at Subway is the Rotisserie-Style Chicken.
So of course, the rival sandwich of the Jive Turkey Dance Club is the Funky Fresh Chicken Dance Club.
Funky Fresh Chicken Dance Club is clearly inspired by Saturday Night Fever.
Run Forrest Ham is based on Subway's Black Forest Ham Sub and the 1994 Tom Hanks movie, Forrest Gump.
Attention, Jive Turkey! You just got served! On fresh-baked six inch Italian bread, with chips and a drink.
