The Onion published a story about a fake September 11 promotion at Subway last week.
Subway was not amused.
Youtube user Travis Northup uploaded a video Thursday where employees at one Subway location accepted the fake coupon.
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.
This was an image of the coupon the guy says he used.
And this was the receipt.
