State Farm: Josh Turns Down A Street Race

In its newest ad promoting the Drive Safe & Save discount, State Farm shows a guy named Josh (nice name, by the way) who’s at a stoplight when a broey bro in a Challenger challenges his to a race. Josh isn’t interested in messing up his discount, so he kindly declines. The brah still wants to go, and he races off by himself. Is that bro the Sherminator from the American Pie movies?

State Farm: Don’t Mess With Kim’s Drive Safe & Save Discount

Kim is very vigilant about her Drive Safe & Save discount from State Farm. It doesn’t matter if it’s Sharon from the office telling them they’re late for a meeting or if Kim’s son needs to go to the bathroom. It doesn’t even matter when Kim is going into labor. Don’t mess with her discount! Haha. The State Farm agent is real-life agent Katie Kelly….anyone know who plays Kim or her frantic husband? And as an aside, I guess State Farm likes commercials with protagonists named Kim.

State Farm: Terry Crews Is Also A Talented Flautist

State Farm wants you to know that it does more than home and auto insurance, and that it’s also won awards for life insurance. So to prove that point, its newest ads show us some lesser-known talents of celebrities. Terry Crews is more than a critically acclaimed actor with rhythmic pecs…he’s also a talented flautist. Nice flauting Terry, but let those pecs speak too! And did you know that comedian Ken Jeong used to be a doctor (I actually did know that). So in the words of Biggie, if you don’t know, now you know. Like most of State Farm’s spots, these commercials use real-life agents, Kenya Knight and Tyler McCall, respectively.

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: Beige Betty Gets Passed Down

A woman named Kim just got her own car with her own insurance. No more driving that old hand-me-down for Kim! Her parents handed it down to Kim’s younger brother. We then cut to little brother’s birthday surprise…it’s an old Buick Roadmaster station wagon, nicknamed “Beige Betty.” He’s not thrilled. Pertinent question: is the little brother an entitled brat? The “Roadmonster”, unfashionable as it is, is also kinda a classic. Austin Zajur plays little bro, and Stephanie Fetzer is a real State Farm agent in Minnesota. Kim is played by Anna Lore,  the dad is Kevin Garbee, and mom is Jana Wimer.

 

 

State Farm’s Helium And Fender Bender Commercial

When a helium truck overturns, both a fender bender and hilarity ensue. Luckily, State Farm is there to help life go right. Will high-pitched helium voices ever not be funny? The answer is no, they will never not be funny. And as the ad alludes to, “fender bender” is also an amusing term, and I expect it to become a pop culture catchphrase shortly. Aflamu Johnson plays Mike, Danny Gonzalez is the passenger, and Marcus Brown is the bullhorn cop. Also, Robyn Holtz is a real State Farm agent in Texas.
