Jared “The Subway Guy” Death Hoax

Jared S. Fogel, best known as the spokesman for Subway sandwich shop “The Subway Guy” Born December 1st, 1977 – Died yesterday at 4:43pm EST.

This is the first paragraph of Mr. Fogle’s fake online obituary on JaredRemembered.com. Just who is Jared Fogle? Jared Fogle is the popular spokesman for Subway sandwiches. You’ve seen him in many a commercial for the sandwich chain as the guy who was fat and then ate only Subway and got skinny. It’s a true story and a marketer’s dream come true.

Perhaps his popularity was to blame for the internet prank. False celebrity death notices are nothing new in the age of the internet. Just ask the Blues Clues guy, Steve Burns, whose reported death became an urban legend, online and off. So Jared Fogle is not dead.

    What a rotten thing for anyone to do. He is a marvelous spokesperson for SubWay & most viewers have become attached to him. It is unfair for anyone to play with our collective psyche. We get enough crappy hits by the mass murderers & child abusers & internet thieves & whatnot. I wish Jared only the best of times & a great long life- same to anyone he knows & loves, and any he does not.(P.S. -that means everyone alive & fundamentally good.)

    That is a really mean rumor to start. He just ran and finished a marathon in New York I think. He is living a productive life and lost all that weight and managed to keep it off. Leave Jared alone. He seems to be a really nice guy. He is a great spokesmen and has a lovely wife too.

    ya by the way he finished like 36,968th place out of 44,829 people. wooowwwwww. subway is bull its just as bad as any other fast food place I used to work there, anyone thats a spokesperson for a fast food industry is an idiot. Go organic, whole foods, no preservatives or additives. I’ve been skinny my whole life because I eat good food, not fast food.

    BOYCOTT SUBWAY, THEIR FOOD sucks anyway….but ever since they sponsored the BET “award” for Michael Vick, it has become a personal mission of mine to spread the word about their association with a degenerate animal torturer whose only claim to fame is running down a field wearing tight pants carrying a football. Vick is a sick S.O.B., please BOYCOTT subway AND BET and support animal rights! Thank you
