This is taking the term "sandwich artist" a little too seriously.
Robert Griffin III tweeted a picture Tuesday morning of a bust of his likeness made almost entirely out of Subway Smokehouse BBQ Chicken.
"All you can do is laugh at this... Thank you @SUBWAY for my Smokehouse BBQ Chicken Sculpture," Griffin wrote.
Sure, it's incredibly unappetizing, but this isn't the first fast food replica of an athlete created for the sandwich chain. Jim Victor is a sculptor whose medium is all things edible. For the past several years, he's carved the restaurant's latest endorsers out of the ingredients under the sneeze guard.
Last April, Mark Ingram (below) was the "lucky" muse for a 40-pound monstrosity. His head and uniform were crafted out of bread and celery sticks, but the body portion was a mayonnaise-y mass of chicken salad held up by a wire frame. No surprise that Ingram declined to take a bite after the unveiling.
Two years ago, busts of Ndamukong Suh and C.J. Spiller were built and are part of his online gallery.
Victor doesn't just use sandwich ingredients for his sports-related food art and other works. Most of his gallery is filled with images carved from butter. He's also used cheese and chocolate, including this bust of Emmitt Smith
It was nice of RGIII to laugh off the strange tribute, but let's hope no one else gets any wild ideas for similar sculptures.
No one wants to see Andrew Luck's head fashioned out of Wendy's Baconators.
