Allstate’s Mayhem Is A Cat

Allstate’s Mayhem (Dean Winters) takes a new form in this spot…he’s a playful, but scheming and destructive cat. See, he’s been plotting to destroy you ever since you took him home. He’ll drink from the sink and cause your bathroom to flood (which will also collapse the ceiling), he’ll eat your bird, and he’ll randomly knock stuff off tables. It’s a billion years of tiger DNA just getting ready to pounce. Of course, he’ll also be real cute when doing all of this. Allstate makes a funny commercial here, and I’m pretty surprised that it took so long for Mayhem to be a cat. Meow!

    Actually, cats are not as destructive as, say, a puppy. Puppies destroy all sorts of things like furniture and door jambs articles of clothing, etc. This commercial perpetuates the myth that cats are not lovable and do not make good pets. It’s a dangerous ad because a great number of cats and kittens are euthanized every day, and these types of myths cause people to think twice about adopting cats and kittens. This ad is not funny at all.

    I can’t believe you would promote this video. Millions of cats need to be adopted out there and if this would prevent even one of them from being adopted it’s nothing that should be shown on TV. People are gullible and if they think a cat would do anything negative some people would not adopt a cat. It’s not that I don’t have a sense of humor, many mayhem commercials are hilarious period, but this one makes me really angry. And it should you, too.
