Actually, the family name of the singer in question is Iwasaki.

Well this is certainly very topical and relevant.

And also kinda weird. Plenty of Adachi series have used love triangles... but Touch? Not so much.

Yeah, it's weird. Feels kinda like a bait and switch. I get that Touch was really influential for its time. But in the end, the love triangle really wasn't what it was about.

Tatsuta(-age. a kind of fried food) is written in katakana as タツタ. Touch is transliterated in katakana as タッチ. タツタ is similar to タッチ.
Perhaps, in the brain of the staffer for the advertising agency, this wordplay conclusion was made first (and other elements were added/taken into account afterwards).

Wracked by loss, guilt, and indecision, I will hesitate, delay, and avoid making a decision about this sandwich until the very last day of the campaign.

マジレスすると、You can eat each of them on different days. If you are a gourmand like Komatsu Sakyō, you can eat both of them on the same day.

Is there a Katsu-sando on this menu?

Mc (Kansai-jin may say, 'McD') has Shōga-yaki Pork Burger on its menu, but probably McDonald's doesn't have katsu-sarnies.
When you visit Akibahara, I would like to recommend Mansei's Katsu Sandwiches.
I have heard the theory that katsu-sandwiches were originally invented as a small soft easy-to-eat food for women working in 花柳界. But now Inogashira Gorō, too, enjoys katsu-sandwiches.
