Bill Belichick. Patriots coach. Super Bowl champion. Subway actor?
Belichick is the star of sandwich chain Subway’s latest ad, which premiered Monday that showed the legendary coach portraying himself and easily convinces a stranger to toss his meal in favor of a footlong sub.
“Bill Belichick?” the man says in disbelief, upon encountering the coach on the sidewalk.
“Really?” Belichick replies, gesturing to the man’s choice of food.
“You’re right,” says the man, throwing his unbranded box of chicken wings to the side. “I should get a delicious footlong from Subway. That would be better.”
On Wednesday, the sandwich chain dropped part 2 of that commercial.
“I haven’t ever done anything like that,” Belichick said earlier this summer. “It was a fun commercial to do. And everybody loves sandwiches, so hopefully, they will be OK with it. I know I’m going to get killed in the rookie shows on this. I know that’s going to happen, but I’ll just have to swallow it.”
