  • 1:39 the subway near me actually has minni Pizzas on The menu its a small pizza meant for one person comes in a little pizza box

  • subway shouldn't feel too bad honestly about the length, sometimes it's more about the girth and the angle you take the picture at.

  • why is a video about something NOBODY cares about at all so thorough and well made and just altogether good XD

  • I swear last night there was not 2 million subs lol nice job!

  • I had to explain in to my girlfriend that the phrase “foot long” is just a trademarked name and is not indicative of actual length.

  • Who tf sues over 1 inch?! Oh yea, that's right, Brenda did when she filed for divorce.

  • the universes bread name is ead comfirmed

  • Me, an Irish person: OMG he mentioned my country our laws are so interesting I’m so glad to hear us talked about in a non-stigmatised wa- The entire comments section: *FIDDLE DEE DEE YE LEPRECHAUNS N YER S U G A R*

  • I always thought whole grain meant the food was only mad of grain

  • Next: pizza hut is not actually in the hut

  • Subways bread is rubber.

  • 14 mins to say subway bread has sugar in it

  • I see you misspelling dessert

  • .....WTF Welp I've Always Knew People Were Hungry For Drama But Didnt Think They Were this Hungry...

  • People in Ireland have no teebth djdbdh


  • Make a theory about theories

  • Next theory Doritos are not chips they are candy and no one should eat it

  • Honey Oat is superior. I have been consuming it for all my childhood and it’s delicious. Change my mind.

  • So the bread is actually bread. That's a relief.

  • Subway cakery

  • In Ireland if you want to be a politician you have to have a fetish of taxing people, it's how they get off

  • Now what is a unit of subways bread

  • I have an idea... let's just eat the f###king sandwich and not look at it from a molecular structure to disprove that its bread, I mean its a goddamn sandwich

  • Next theory Food isn't food

  • As an ex subway employee I love the puns

  • 9:54 Dessert matpat dessert!

  • Tbh I don’t eat the bread that’s not Actually bread soooooo

  • Just a note from a Baker. The bread I make doesn't have sugar in it. I view anything with extra sugar or fats as enriched dough and and is sorta a sweet bread. I do make things with olive oil in it. And no sugar but I don't really see that as enrichment to a degree. Its all kinda subjective

  • I knew it

  • I just wanna say that you got the shape of Ireland wrong the north/UK part of Ireland is still part of the country their just still loyal to the Crown, I know this maybe confusing for you but take it from someone who actually lives their also your saying it wrong your supposed to say it like areland not ierlind

  • the odd ones out is that actually you im a big fan i watch almost every single vid if thats you im just saying im a big fan

  • The bread was a lie.

  • Ah, "healthy bread". Tale as old as thyme.

  • Pretty sure matpat was hired by Subway to use this video in court

  • 3:19 genuinely terrified me

  • ahem: "milk bread" in my old cookbooks is NOT a highly sugary confection like JAPANESE milk bread is it just means a bread with milk as one of the ingredients. that is, dairy, not pareve the milk bread in my recipe book for, say, my bread machine has no more sugar in it than the regular bread, it just uses milk instead of some of the water

  • Do a theory about bone apple tea! Or about localization. My friend who lives in China went to a restaurant that advertised paella, but it was really just the same ingredients as paella served as something more similar to egg foo young and he found that really offensive. I disagree with him on that because it's not like 90% of the stuff sold as Chinese or Indian food in European descendant dominated areas would be recognizable as Chinese or Indian food to natives of those countries. The fortune cookie was invented in California and tikka masala is from Glasgow. If the same thing is happening in reverse, then who are we to judge?

  • Can't Subway pay different taxes in different countries? Aren't they doing that already?

  • plot twist: subway pulled a Arby’s and made it MEAT

  • Who else is eating left over Thanksgiving buns while watching this

  • 11:04 So you could start selling cupcakes and cookies and having them 'usually known as' bread cookies and bread cupcakes (only in name), and they would qualify for tax exemption regardless of sugar content? (as well as a cake designed to look similar to a loaf of bread, like with fondant art) fantastic system.

  • I like how he puts seàn in when he says ireland or irish In the start

  • And they call chips crisps and call fries chips and call cookies biscuits .they're nuts

  • I thought the bread was yoga mats

  • I love your intro it has so many Easter eggs XD

  • I’ve learned more from matpat than my teachers could ever teach me 😂

  • What the heck is going on with auto English subtitles???

  • Me: Is eating bread Video: Is talking about subway bread being fake Me again: Well the bread being fake just makes it tasty

  • best part about living in europ is that we don't have to callcualte som stupid tax on the end of our groccery store bill our taxes is allredy callculated in the price of the items.

  • Wait... It's gonna be taxed like a "desert?" Oh, boy. That's gonna be expensive 9:48

  • 13:05 This just hurt

  • Taxes. The most ridiculously convoluted and nonsesical laws desined to get as much money from citizens as possible without causing anarchy.

  • Imagine spending hours researching Irish bread laws, and still not knowing how to spell "dessert". Spellcheck is not your friend, but that's just a theory.

  • 1:17 horrible pun you fricc

  • grain doesn't sound like a word

  • He got a little worked up about the classification of bread...

  • When you see what you can get on a Subway sandwich, the grain/sugar ratio in the bread really does not mean much...

  • ToOrU 🤪oIkAwAs🥰 fAvOrITe 😋 fOoD 🍱 iS 🤭MiLk BrEaD 🥛🍞

  • I'm so brain dead from life that he said milk bread, and I just went "Tooru Oikawa's favorite food is milk bread, his personal motto is if you're going to hit it, hit it till it breaks!" And I don't know how to feel-

  • Matpat says "for you American viewers out there" like he's not American

  • subway bread

  • I just noticed bobs burgers was in your intro

  • but hey thats just a theory a foooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood theory

  • I work at a subway lol

  • Woah. Why aren't you a lawyer?

  • The opposite of unleavened bread is raisin bread

  • They add sugar to mask the weird after taste from the bread, and it didn't work. I don't know what kind of preservatives they use, but Subway probably has the worst bread ever.

  • Why is the whole grain stamp Aprooving this as 100% whole grain in the first place.

  • Watching this knowing you reacted to gamer from mars content vid like a lame

  • We thneed answers

  • Well.......I'm going to Subway for my hibernation this year with all of that sugar!!
