New meat(balls), please.

by Andrew MacGregor


Subway: “Meatless Meatball Marinara Sub” - 90s

Subway’s disruptive streak continues with this 90” plug for the brand’s vegan Meatball Marinara sub. Keen to attract more health-conscious punters through their doors, the brand introduce said sandwich at a tasting session brimming with open-minded diners. Alas, not everything goes according to plan.

Yes, the execution is over the top and sure to cause many a furrowed brow, but Above+Beyond’s latest simply adds fuel to a fascinating discussion about meat consumption. The likes of Subway, Greggs, and Burger King are at the vanguard of plant-based fast food, and who could have predicted that a few years ago? Other brands risk being left behind at this rate.
