The Women From Those Buick Commercials

A blog reader wrote to me wondering the identities of the women in a Buick commercial. They have numerous ads running, so I’ll cover a few of them. The first one isn’t even new…it came out at least a year ago, but has been getting aired again. Two friends are going to their friend’s baby shower. One picked up a cake that says “girl.” Only problem is that the baby, who’s going to be named Taylor, will be a boy. So they run back to the bakery for a “boy” cake. The brunette is Caitlin McHugh, and the blonde is Arielle Vandenberg, who also played the wife in State Farm’s popular “Never” ad.

In the second commercial, a woman parks her Buick Enclave and a bunch of kids pop out. Another woman passing by comments about how much room it has for “those little maniacs”, and suggests to her husband that they should have a ton more kids. Only they have three active ones already. Vanessa Rubio plays the Buick Enclave mom.. The husband of the stroller mom is Robert Belushi, who’s the son of Jim and the nephew of John. The song playing in both commercials is “It’s Alright” by Matt & Kim.

State Farm’s “Never” Commercial

It’s a pretty cute commercial made by DDB Chicago. The man keeps saying he’ll never do different things…like get married, have kids, move to the suburbs, buy a minivan, and have another kid. Of course, he ends up doing all those things. Finally, he’s with his wife and kids and says “I’ll never let go.” If you’re a cynical type, you might say that he will let go, since he did all the “never” events. That would really put a dark twist on it, although I don’t see the commercial that way. It’s a nice message that life doesn’t always turn out according to plan, because people develop and plans change. I’m not sure who the actor playing the man is, but the wife is Arielle Vandenberg.
