In its latest TV ad, Subway heads to Naples, the home of the pizza, to test out its subversive new Pizza Sub on the city’s pizza traditionalists.

Above+Beyond’s new TV ad, made in documentary style, purports to capture the reactions of Neapolitan pizza purists – some furious, some bemused, some in total disbelief – as they are faced with Subway’s unconventional approach to pizza.

The Subway team flouts the pizza establishment in the beautiful Italian city by introducing a new way to eat “pizza”, with options that reflect the UK and Ireland’s true pizza preferences including BBQ chicken and Sriracha.
