Jack in the Box - "Philly" intern commercial

Please help!
I am trying to find the latest Jack in the Box commercial, featuring the intern who goes to Philly for 6 months to research their new cheesesteak sammich.
My boss is from Philly - "yo" is a regular part of his vocabulary. We keep telling him about this commercial, and he still has yet to see it.
I tried looking out there - including their website, and came up empty. (The closest I got was at AdCritic.com, but you have to be a paid member)

I hope this is the right place for this - thought about going to the otters, but thought I'd start here first.
(Mods - feel free to move where appropriate!)

Sorry, I can't help you find it, but I do love that commercial. (I live in PA, so I run into Philly people all the time, and well, you can always tell when someone is from Philly)

I know the ad agency that does Jack In The Box's ads is Secret Weapon Marketing in Santa Monica. You could always call them, ask to speak to a broadcast production assistant and they might send you a copy.

Yeah - but I'm just hoping that it's online somewhere out there.....

(If only my boss would sit in front of the TV for one minute to watch it. It's not a 'rare' commerical or anything - geez! They show it all the time!)

Odd, here in So. Cal (where JIB HQ is), there is no philly cheesteak sandwich. Obviously, then, there's no commerical for it either.

What they are advertising now are the new "Ultimate Salads", but I've never heard of JIB selling philly cheesteaks. Huh.

Are you sure? I'm here in So Cal and I saw the "Philly ad" on a local channel a few weeks ago.

Well, we consider folks in San Diego to be in SoCal much the same way as northern California folks consider “us” to be part of the state. But that’s a different discussion.

In SoCal Proper ( ) the ads have been running for at least a coupla months. I’ve tried the Philly cheesesteak and, if you like it dry (with practically no sauce, secret or otherwise), then “yo!”

I say “no!”

Im in SoCal, I know what commercial your talking about and I see it like 4-5 times a day. Plus the all the local jack in boxes ive been to serve the philly cheese steak sandwich. Its pretty funny. I agree that the sandwich that good at all, since I eat at Philly's Best whenever I want to eat a philly cheese steck.

"I soaked up Philly like a sponge..."

The commercial's hilarious; the sandwich is terrible sober (but not bad drunk).

Yeah, I watch an insane amount of TV, and I've never seen that commerical. I've passed JIB HQ thousands of times, though, and I'm still suprised that it's not offered here.

i've always wondered why we dont have jack in the philly area anymore.

i remeber them when i was a kid. i guess in the 70's.

the square jack buildings are still sprinckled around the area.
there is still one in delaware county near me that recently was a used cd store and now is coincidently enough a cheesesteak shop.

here's alittle fyi:

if a cheese steak is ever advertised as a philly cheese steak... avoid it at all costs, even if the place happens to be in philly.

don't listen to venom. he has an opinion that does not apply to everyone.

cheesestaeks are good.
when they are done the right way.
