The Greendale sellout

Did anybody see "Community" tonight?  The plotline was essentially that the entire college was sold to the Subway Corporation, who then proceeded to rename dorms and plaster their logo everywhere.  Senor Chang was singing the "$5 footlong" jingle.

What was interesting (to me) about the episode is that Subway must have agreed to this spoof.  Subway wasn't exactly portrayed as a rapacious corporation, but there was a patina of exploitation.  It was cool though: they were obviously comfortable enough to poke fun at themselves.
