Subways 'fresh take' on the NFL labor talks

Posted by Will Brinson

I'm not always a fan of Subway marketing, particularly when they have a guy dress up like a breakfast sandwich and stand on a corner by the shopping center near my house. (I mean, really, nothing's more appetizing than thinking about eating a giant plastic sandwich for breakfast, especially when he's across the street from a Chik-Fil-A, right?)

But the sly move the Subway in Washington, D.C. near the Federal Mediation and Counseling Services pulled (see: above) is pretty freaking awesome.

Apparently, this Subway's picked up plenty of business over the past few weeks thanks to the slew of reporters sitting outside the labor negotiations. And now, they're willing to capitalize on it.

Well played, handlers of sandwich meat.
