Quizno's gets my vote. Had no idea they were "sponge monkeys" until now. Burger King gets the life-time achievement award for Creepy. They had a failed campaign with a human mascot that was even creepier.

Paris Hilton inhaling the monster burger gets a dishonorable mention.

OMG -- you are right to include both Burger King and Quizno's in the creepy category!

I mean, if I looked around and that silent, masked King was tapping me on the shoulder, I would scream and run for the hills!

And, I don't even want to THINK about that Quizno's gerbil in a car accident!
