Marcus Mariota Talks To His Heisman Trophy For Subway

Marcus Mariota’s relationship with Subway continues to create some disturbing imagery. First, it was Mariota’s nightmare causing likeness created solely of cured meats and lettuce. Now, Mariota is starring in a series of commercials which might have been inspired by an actual nightmare: His Heisman Trophy is talking to him.


Seriously, if you could win a Heisman Trophy with the caveat that it would talk to you non-stop while you’re working out, constantly ask for a bite of your food, and make fun of the ducks that you throw up in the NFL … would you do it? Would you make that trade?

I think these aren’t so much Subway commercials as they are a precursor to a present day Twilight Zone episode. “Meet Marcus Mariota. A man consumed with the kind of gridiron success that is rewarded with a small, inanimate object. A false idol? Not in the mind of the object. But when Mr. Mariota realizes that the object does indeed have a mind of his own, then he will find that all the Hail Marys he throws will land … in the Twilight Zone.”
