View Full Version : Subway Facebook Page pranked with Sandwich-Censored hentai

The page that started it: http://www.facebook.com/HatsuneMikuTroll

The link to the Article:

"Early Wednesday morning, dozens of pseudonymous contributors flooded the restaurant's official Facebook page with obscene photos of anime characters enjoying foot-long sandwiches (link is NSFW). In each pornographic image, male and female genitalia have been replaced with food.

According to one of the submitters who spoke to the Daily Dot, identifying herself only as Ember, the majority of the photos originated on Hatsune Miku Troll, a Facebook fan page dedicated to Miku Hatsune, an animated pop star in Japan.

“Hatsuke Miku Troll started making daily sandwich pics censoring with a subway sandwich and their logo,” Ember told the Daily Dot. “So, the admin of that page asked if they should post the pictures to subway's page. Of course, a bunch of people agreed and joined in. We all went to websites for original pictures, saved them, opened them up in Photoshop or whatever other editing program we had, and placed the sandwich pic and or logo in there. Subway also banned us from the page afterwards, which isn't surprising at all.”

Other photos originate in a FacePunch forums thread (also NSFW) dedicated to Photoshopping Subway sandwiches into hentai (a Japanese term for porn comics). Though the thread began on Dec. 26, 2011, its most recent post is from 36 hours ago.

Based on participants’ submissions and comments, the meme doesn’t originate from any ill will for either porn or Subway sandwiches. It’s just a bizarre juxtaposition.

“Finally a thread for my extremely specific hentai, mayo and Subway-penis fetish!” Thaard wrote.

When a screenshot of Subway’s Facebook predicament made it to Reddit’s r/funny, redditors blamed Subway for the mess.

“This is what happens when a large public entity lets everyone tag them in photos,” emarkd wrote. “They should know better.”

Subway apparently became aware of the incident Wednesday afternoon, and a moderator began removing the images. However, that has only encouraged submitters.

“[S]o subway removed my post and a couple others. brb posting more,” Yichao Ravioli wrote.

Subway has yet to respond to the Daily Dot’s requests for comment.

Facebook has struggled with pornography for years, and clearly has yet to develop a photo recognition software to stop porn before it’s posted. For now, Subway is on its own."

It just doesn't look right. People may lose their appetite..

And now people unfamiliar with anime, Hatsune Miku, or "otaku culture" are going to associate both the media and those who enjoy them with this event and these images.

Great job, nitwits. It's another step back in the "anime isn't just for kids"-and-"anime isn't just porn" arguement and for general public knowledge of anime in the west. Things like this are why I don't like most other anime fans, and why I'm ashamed to say I like it.

That's pretty gross. In Facebook, I've seen "porn" that are censored with drawings of clothes done on MS Paint or whatever. It still disturb me so much.
And that's not cool with censoring a wee-wee with a sandwich. >:U I love Subway. Not cool.

Wow. Warning don't see pics while high. Now I understand the girl on the top of the sandwich but the girl between the sandwich makes it wired. I guess she is in charge of the part of the sandwich that falls out of the cut the workers do to the foot long

I would go to Subway more often if I saw advertisements like what KAITO and Camui Gackpo did in real life, hell, I'd visit any place more if there was VOCALOID in it.

Aha, the girl you saw in the link isn't a girl, that's a boy and so is the one in the blue, the artist just made them more feminine (well at least KAITO, Camui Gackpo is already pretth feminine in his original boxart. Anyways, lucky KAITO and Gackpo, enjoying that footlong that I can't.

It's pretty gross. And it's just going to give anime that much more of a bad reputation.
