Just when it seemed like 2020 couldn't get any weirder, Bill Belichick is now pushing sandwiches.

Tuesday afternoon, the Patriots head coach was spotted filming a commercial for Subway Sandwiches in Branford, Connecticut. The small town is about five hours away from Nantucket by way of car and ferry.

The eight-time Super Bowl champion was pictured chatting with the film crew (while wearing a mask), and chomping down on what looks like a ham footlong. The shoot appeared to draw quite the crowd of interested locals.

Belichick has 14 days left to get his Hollywood itch out before the Patriots are scheduled to begin Training Camp on July 28.

Other notable NFL Subway spokesmen have included brothers JJ and TJ Watt and former Heisman winner Robert Griffin III.
