Marcus Mariota is ready to take the NFL by storm. He’s about to be a top draft pick … perhaps Top 2 … and he’s got top shelf endorsements lined up. To please his corporate sponsors, he has to take part in certain promotional activities. One of those activities he took part in was for the Subway food chain a few days ago, which honored him in a way that only Subway can: with a food statue.

I realize there’s only so much you could to with lettuce, tomatoes, and ham. But did they run out of cheese for his front teeth? At least the statue is very healthy for you to eat … if you care to slice off Mariota’s nose and chow down. As if you didn’t guarantee enough nightmares, imagine taking a hatchet to his head so you can eat fresh. With Jared in the background laughing maniacally. I’m not so sure this thing hasn’t given Mariota nightmares already.
That food statue looks familiar:
Hmmmm. Maybe. Medusa doesn’t have enough tomatoes. And she looks like she wants to take over all mankind while Subway Marcus just looks scared to death. And that’s how you know a statue is scary looking … the statue is scared of itself. But good use of those unidentified vegetables on his head to simulate the snakes.
Or maybe …
Wow. That might be more on the nose.
