Farmers Insurance Covers A Three-Ring Fender Bender

If you suffer from coulrophobia, I’d suggest turning away from this one. Anyway, a man gets rear-ended by a literal clown car. And then the apologetic clowns surround him. Is this Farmers ad more or less unsettling than the Progressive cornfield commercial? As always, J.K. Simmons is the Farmers spokesman, while Kevin Fabian plays the first clown. Elizabeth Schmidt is the female Farmers client walking with J.K. Simmons. Anyone know who plays the rear-ended driver?

Tuesday Throwback: Ronald McDonald Believes In Magic

So I heard the original “Do You Believe in Magic” by The Lovin’ Spoonful a few days ago, and my mind immediately went to this 1992 McDonald’s ad. Ronald McDonald lets us know that you’ll always have a friend with big red shoes (that line has always been memorable for me). It’s catchy as hell and cheesy as hell, like a whole lot of stuff from the ’80s and ’90s. Also, clowns are creepy. I’ve put up a slightly altered version of this commercial to demonstrate. Look out for the last 10 seconds.
