Quiznos Brings Back Its Deranged Spongmonkey Mascots for a New Commercial

Back in the early 2000s, Quiznos had one of the quirkiest and most bizarre mascots ever with the Spongmonkey rodents. These peculiar creatures graced all of Quiznos’ commercials until 2005, singing about their love for Quiznos’ various products in their own distinctive and somewhat deranged style. However, despite the memorable marketing campaign, Quiznos faced financial struggles and ultimately filed for bankruptcy in 2014, resulting in the closure of over 4,000 locations.

Fast forward to the present day, and there’s surprising news in the world of fast food. Among the few remaining Quiznos shops scattered across the globe, the Spongmonkey has made a dramatic comeback! Yes, that’s right—out of nowhere, the beloved and dreaded Spongmonkey is back in action, featuring in a hilarious new commercial announcing Quiznos’ return.

In a statement released by CEO Tim Casey, he expressed the significance of the Spongmonkeys’ return, saying, “The Spongmonkeys were last seen in 2005, when they were loved and hated in roughly equal measure. The return of the brand’s most famous mascots, the Spongmonkeys, marks the resurgence of Quiznos.”

The origins of these quirky creatures can be traced back to U.K. animator Joel Veitch, who originally created the Spongmonkey. In a recent interview with Eater, Veitch shared his surprise and delight when Quiznos reached out to revive the iconic characters. He expressed how making the original commercials was an experience of unbridled joy, filled with mayhem and heaps of fun. He couldn’t have been happier to see the Spongmonkeys continue to live on even after their initial run with Quiznos.

For those who don’t recall, the Spongmonkeys had a unique way of expressing their affection for Quiznos’ delectable sandwiches and other tasty treats through catchy jingles that some found endearing while others found annoyingly memorable.

Now, with the Spongmonkeys’ return, Quiznos hopes to reignite the nostalgia and fond memories associated with their quirky mascots, while also appealing to a new generation of customers. The new commercial promises to deliver a hearty dose of laughter and perhaps even a craving for those classic Quizno sandwiches.

Speaking of which, our nostalgia takes us back to the time we enjoyed Quizno sandwiches, relishing in their toasty goodness and flavorful fillings. However, like many, it’s been a while since we last indulged in one of their delectable creations. But with the Spongmonkeys back in the picture, our curiosity is piqued, and perhaps it’s time to revisit the world of Quiznos once more.

So, keep your eyes peeled for the entertaining and eccentric new commercial featuring the iconic Spongmonkeys, as Quiznos gears up to charm their way back into the hearts—and stomachs—of sandwich lovers everywhere. Get ready to sing along with these peculiar critters as they once again spread the word about the delightful offerings of Quiznos, a brand that has found its way back from the brink of obscurity to reclaim its place in the fast-food landscape.
