Want to kick off your Labor Day weekend with a heaping plate of irony, topped off with a layer of schadenfreude? Why don’t you have a seat right over there, and watch this video.
In a newly unearthed clip, disgraced former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle — who’s currently facing at least five years in prison for possession of child pornography and having sex with minors — mocks the unlucky saps of “To Catch a Predator” for their naivete.
For those unfamiliar with the NBC series, “Predator” documented a sting operation that lured men to a location with the promise of sex with a minor, only to confront them on camera.
Fogle weighed in on the VH1 miniseries “I Love the New Millennium,” which aired in 2008 — interestingly, the same year that a former Subway franchisee claims to have brought Fogle’s unseemly sex life to the attention of the then-CEO of the Subway Franchisee Advertising Fund Trust.
The former sandwich shiller’s verdict on the “Predator” sting victims?
“These guys continue to fall for it every single time,” Fogle scoffed. “There must be, like, a hundred million episodes of this show, and these guys still come out.”
Luckily, Fogle will have plenty of time to contemplate the irony of the situation during his stay in the pokey.
Watch Fogle offer his thoughts on “To Catch a Predator” in the video. (The former pitchman pops up at about the 6:10 mark.)
