Like everyone, we are deeply offended by the fake story and ad created by The Onion.
1. The Onion published a story about a fake September 11 promotion at Subway last week.
2. Subway was not amused.
3. Youtube user Travis Northup uploaded a video Thursday where employees at one Subway location accepted the fake coupon.
4. From the video’s description:
I played a prank on my friend and convinced him that The Onion’s satirical 9/11 deal was a real promotion, and when he and my other co-worker (who was in on it) went to grab the food Subway actually honored the promotion. I gave my co-worker a blown up version of the picture that The Onion made for their article and they accepted it. I have a receipt showing a subtotal of $9.11 before taxes. My mind was blown.
