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.
