Danny DeVito comes up short in new Jersey Mike’s commercials

Danny DeVito is the star power in a series of Jersey Mike’s commercials. You’ve probably seen a few of them but in case you haven’t, here’s my least favorite.

Why is he stealing a sub from another customer? A rich, well-known actor can afford a sub, right? It’s just weird. Maybe I just don’t get his humor, but I haven’t laughed at any of the DeVito commercials yet. There are a couple more of the ads below, all aiming at a laugh from the viewer. This isn’t the first time Jersey Mike’s has produced a commercial that misses the mark for me. Last year they had one titled, “Resume,” in which a turkey was proud to be sliced up for a sandwich. I wrote more about it in my review here, but in a nutshell it would be a cold day in Hades before a wild animal would be happy to die and get eaten.

Below are more commercials starring DeVito. If you’re interested in why Jersey Mike’s brought on DeVito as their celebrity endorsement, check out this article where it’s all explained.

Am I missing something? Are these ads funny and I just need to lighten up? Chime in below! Thanks for dropping in…

  1. I love Jersey mike’s #17, but DeVito is such a eunuch I lose my apetite when these commercials come on! Why would they choose a 3′ tall gnome? Creepy. They need to take a hint from Subway and pick an athelete, not a 77 y/o has been. Twins was it for me. Terrible choice.
