Patriots: Watch Bill Belichick’s hilarious new Subway commercial
By Adam Weinrib
New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick needs you to cut those sleeves off for Subway, son.
Ever since some wily production intern released aerial (drone-shot?) photos of Patriots head coach Bill Belichick yukking it up while shooting a Subway commercial, we’ve been eagerly anticipating the spot’s release.
Would Belichick crack a smile? Would he dive chompers-first into a Five-Dollar Footlong? Would there be some classically-executed Tom Brady puns (“Leave the Tom-ato off. We’re doing it without Tom-ato. That’s the way I’ve always wanted it.”)? What about, “We’re onto Teriyaki”?
Well, wonder no more! We’ve officially got the first Belichick spot, and it features him intimidating a businessman into throwing his food into the road.
As always, sound advice from the head man in New England, though we’re not sure the adjustment to this kid’s suit is going to pay off for him, unless he’s looking to become a part of the Belichick coaching tree, something that … also never seems to work out. Never mind.
At last, the day Devin McCourty has been waiting for is finally here! And there’s got to be more in the chamber.
After all, the on-set shots we all saw last month show an entirely different commercial. Belichick’s seated and enjoying a toasty sandwich in these sneak peeks. Based on what we’re looking at here, McCourty’s going to have even more laugh ammo than he anticipated.
What a unique offseason for Belichick. The rumors about his relationship with Tom Brady are swirling, he’s become enamored with Cam Newton, and the expectations have been completely lowered for his latest assault on the AFC.
And here he is, eating big sandwiches and slicing sleeves.
Anyone who’s counting out a relaxed Belichick is being foolish; somehow, with so much apparent disarray in New England, he’s putting himself out in public more than ever.
The Patriots, and Subway, remain in good hands.
