The internet’s been riding poor old Russell Wilson again.

Anyone who follows the NFL will know that Wilson’s been the butt of many a Twitter joke after his former teammate Marshawn Lynch said he’s notoriously hard to get in contact with, alleging he’d been told to forward questions for Wilson ‘to his manager’.

And if that wasn’t bad enough, the internet’s now got its hands on a Subway ad Wilson took part in, and people now believe his personalised sandwich has since been removed because of backlash.


For anyone who has no idea what we’re talking about; back in February, Subway launched a digital-only menu called The Vault.

Sandwiches in The Vault were created by prominent sports stars like Wilson and Lynch and by buying the limited edition subs, customers were automatically entered into a draw that could see them get their hands on a sub signed by one of the sports stars.

Wilson’s ‘dangerwich’ sub came with pepperoni, salami, black forest ham, provolone cheese and bacon.

In the ad, which has been recirculating online this week, Wilson was promoting his ‘dangerwich’ sub by attempting to eat it in ‘dangerous’ ways.

For example, Wilson tries to eat the sandwich blindfolded, and at one point in the ad, even attempts to bite through the wrapping.

Anyway, Twitter has since ridiculed Wilson, and many social media users are claiming they can no longer order his ‘dangerwich’ online.

Taking to Twitter on Thursday (20 October), one person wrote: “BREAKING NEWS: Russell Wilson's ‘Dangerwich’ has been removed from the Subway Vault after weeks of viral memes and backlash.”

Another person added: “I'm crying in my backroom right now because I ordered Subway and the Dangerwich wasn't on the Vault menu at all…”

Others had no problem getting their mitts on the sandwich, with one social media user tweeting: “I’ve gotten the russell wilson dangerwich sub at subway for lunch 16 days in a row. My stomach is in shambles.”

Others just took to opportunity to poke fun at the NFL star, writing comments like: “I’m never eating Subway again after that,” “Who at Subway watches these Russell Wilson commercials and says, ‘Ya that’s a winner?’” and “Everyone is dunking on Russell Wilson, and rightfully so. But Subway and the creative agency that designed and signed off on these ads need to be charged with a crime.”

UNILAD has approached Wilson and Subway for comment.
