State Farm: Chris Paul, James Harden, And Oscar Nunez “Jump Around”…While Ducking

This State Farm campaign with Chris Paul, James Harden, and Oscar Nunez is a fun one. In the latest spot, they’re hanging out and the Houston Rockets’ bear mascot Clutch is in the kitchen making guacamole. Suddenly, House of Pain’s “Jump Around” starts playing on the basketball game they’re watching, and Clutch…gets a bit out of hand. At least the windows still look good. Haha.

State Farm: James Harden Has A Microwave Mishap In Chris Paul’s Kitchen

James Harden decides to heat up some Chinese take-out in the microwave. This is a poor choice, since the metal handle causes the microwave to explode and a kitchen fire ensues. We cut to State Farm “agent” Oscar Nunez commenting to Chris Paul that it was a good thing he kept his fire extinguisher up to date. Turns out that it was Chris Paul’s kitchen. Whoops. James tries to deny that he was the one that caused the fire, but beard evidence suggests otherwise.

State Farm: This Suede Couch Is Admired Both By Its Owner And By Burglars

It’s a nice couch, and who doesn’t love suede? It’s a chuckler how the woman and her friend have the exact same conversation about the piece as the burglars who steal it. The owner of the couch is played by Meryl Hathaway, and when I found of the identities of the others, I’ll add that too.

State Farm Is Now Here To Help Life Go Right

State Farm is introducing a new campaign, maybe to differentiate itself from the jokey advertising that is common with competitors like Geico and Progressive. The campaign comes with the tagline “Here to Help Life Go Right.” An introductory anthem ad debuted yesterday, and has already racked up more than 2 million views. It’s visually nice and the music that comes in halfway through sounds good, but I just find it to be a bit boring. State Farm and DDB Chicago have done some excellent work though, so I’m willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. Interested to see where this campaign is going.
