Chuck vs. The Finale Footlong

April 27, 2009 by  

Hope you’re hungry for some Subway.  To thank Subway for their product placement during this season of CHUCK, fans of the show are heading out today to buy a Subway $5 footlong. Have a delicious sandwich and support CHUCK at the same time.

  • Fill out a comment card and let Subway know you support them because they support CHUCK.
  • Take a picture of yourself buying a footlong and send it in to GMMR so we can post it here.

  • Way to go, Subway!
    From Joe Adalian’s: ‘Subway: Good Night and Good ‘Chuck

    According to two people familiar with the situation, Subway’s internal tracking of the “Chuck” promotion was off the charts. One source labeled it the best such product placement the restaurant chain has done “in several years.”

    And here’s the kicker: Pace was so impressed with “Chuck’s” impact on sandwich sales, he actually called a top NBC ad sales executive to let him know just how much Subway loved the Chuckster. What’s more, Pace told NBC the company hoped the network decided to renew “Chuck” for another season.

    An NBC source confirmed to TVWeek’s Jon Lafayette that the call took place. Just what impact the conversation may have on NBC’s decision remains to be seen. As big as Subway is, it’s only one advertiser. read the whole article here: ‘Subway: Good Night and Good ‘Chuck

Chuck vs. the Finale Footlong Goes International with Zachary Levi

It’s only fitting that the lovely lady that created the Finale Footlong campaign, Wendy, was on hand yesterday in Birmingham, England when CHUCK star Zachary Levi took over 300 people from the Starfury Convention to a nearby Subway to buy their footlongs.  Zac even got behind the counter and made a few sandwiches himself. (More pics at

Here’s some video footage from the day.

Thomas, from the tech crew at Starfury also sent along some video of the Sunway excursion for you to enjoy. Check out the Starfury YouTube channel for more of their great videos.

Zac mentions coverage on CNN.  Well, here’s to hoping they see this.  I was contacted by CNN last week to discuss the Save Chuck campaign but I’m not sure the campaign will be featured today. I hope so. We need all the help we can get.

Now go out and buy those Subway footlongs and send in your pic to us!

    Awesome start to the day!

    Aw, I love it. I think I might have even got a little teary eyed at the outpouring of love and support. Even up in Canada we’ll be buying our footlongs tonight.

    I’ll be buying my footlong on the way home from work, eating half. Going for a run, then going home to eat the other half while watching the finale. Not even marathon training could keep me from my beloved Chuck Bartowski, Buy Morians, and agents.

  4. Michele on April 27th, 2009 9:03 am

    Just sent my email to Subway, and I think I’ll take the family for a footlong after little league tonight!

  5. Elena on April 27th, 2009 9:14 am

    […] the very least to get a third and final season.  One of the more interesting campaigns is “Chuck Vs The Footlong“. While the standard letter writing is asked of by the fans, there are a couple of other […]

    Neato! I love that Zac took part in making footlongs. What a great guy! I’ll be going to my local Subway after work today, grabbing my footlong, taking a photo op, and heading home to take part in the chat, whilst watching the (hopefully) season finale!

  9. Denise (ddker) on April 27th, 2009 11:36 am

    I’m gonna grab a footlong on the way to work, eat half for my lunch on the way to work, then have the other half for my lunch break tonight at work. It sucks I’m gonna miss it when it airs since I’ll be at work, but I’ll watch it as soon as I get home!

  10. Kristi on April 27th, 2009 11:48 am

    Awesome! Now I know what I’m having for dinner while we watch NBC’s finale night! So excited 🙂

  11. browncoat24 on April 27th, 2009 12:44 pm

    Buying a total of 4 footlongs today. Only 2 for me but figured the total was what’s important.

  12. Samantha on April 27th, 2009 2:24 pm

    My co-workers and I bought our Subway lunch, and I spoke with the manager and told him about Chuck. He’s going to watch the show on Hulu tonight after the store closes! I also sent my comments to Subway (thanks for the cs link), and I am looking forward to the show tonight!

  13. Nicole on April 27th, 2009 2:48 pm

    Hey everyone….this was linked on Twitter. It gives me hope that we actually be making NBC take note:

    Also, this fan is amazing:

    I’m picking mine up on the way home from work tonight!

    I reached out to my facebook friends reminding them to watch Chuck tonight…I’ll but a $5 footlong for dinner….and I emailed Subway customer service from your link. LETS HOPE THIS WORKS ITS MAGIC!!! (And, can’t wait for the amazing SEASON finale tonight!)

  16. vnz on April 27th, 2009 3:30 pm

  17. Alison on April 27th, 2009 3:40 pm

  18. Kerry on April 27th, 2009 3:55 pm

    My Subway kind of fails with not having comment cards, but I just bought my footlong and sent them my comments online.

  19. Jackie on April 27th, 2009 5:38 pm

    I’m going out with my friends to get Subway for dinner..who hoo!!

  20. JT on April 27th, 2009 6:55 pm

    I’m eating my subway sandwich right now for lunch. No comment cards, so thanks for the link. I will send my comment asap. I’m jealous that you only have about an hour until the finale. I still have about 6 hours to go 🙁

  21. shannon on April 27th, 2009 6:59 pm

    Hey that’s me! I’m not going to lie, I am a little excited that you put my picture up next to one of Zach. That may be the closest I ever get to him. Damn. Thanks for posting it Kath. I love the video you posted too, that is so awesome that Zach would do that. I hope this campaign made a difference!
    Oh and Kerry mine didn’t have comment cards, I am leaving them a comment on line ASAP as well. Maybe more that one!! haha

    So, I’ve also been mildly interested in Chuck, but never watched it since I’m normally preoccupied with another Chuck on Monday nights, namely one Chuck Bass.

    But, when my friend and I couldn’t decide on a movie this weekend at Blockbuster, I immediately suggested that we rent the first season of Chuck (mainly due to the “Give Me My Chuck” campaign).

    We both loved it! I know I’m late in joining the game, but wanted to offer up my support for the show!

  24. Toast with JAM on April 28th, 2009 4:32 am

    We bought our footlong Subways today! Even though we had a yummy-smelling dinner in the oven! We can have that dinner as leftovers tomorrow, but the Subway and Chuck finale is TONIGHT! Too bad the Subway workers were total gomers and I won’t be going back there (general fast-food service which is BAD, dry bread which total ruins a sandwich, etc.), but I took one for the Chuck Team and the sacrifice was worth the support of Chuck. Nice to see the grassroots efforts got back to the Chuck cast! GO CHUCK! UP CHUCK!

  25. Phyllis Vance on April 28th, 2009 10:09 am

    Yay, my picture is up! We had a really nice experience, the girl making our sandwiches was a Chuck fan and she gave my friend extra meatballs! I’m crossing my fingers that this works!

  26. SB on April 28th, 2009 7:23 pm

    Yay, Mandi! I love hearing those stories!
