O Subway chicken, where art thou?

In summer 2005, just about every Alabama newspaper ran a story about a pet chicken in Clanton that successfully auditioned for a Subway TV commercial. Annabel, owned by a teenager named Amber Burns, would appear in the ad dressed as Napoleon to promote the chain's new chicken cordon bleu sandwich. Burns was paid $250 for Annabel's services.

The ads supposedly started running in some markets in 2005, presumably areas where Subway franchises actually had chicken cordon bleu on the menu. But I've never seen the ad, myself. Has it actually aired? Has anyone seen it? I need closure.
