This is a fairly popular ad campaign, we seem to have agreed on this a while back- you know, the one with "Mayhem" and all his adventures! How terrible that I'm not 100% sure which company, it IS Allstate isn't it?! Geek Regardless.......
 
The one where he falls backward down the stairs has me somewhat fascinated. Doesn't seem to be a stunt double; probably has a padded suit underneath the costume suit; still, how he could even DO this without cringing is beyond me. Guess he rehearsed a whole bunch on cushions.

Hate the guy. My family agreed this would be better if he didn't survive...

Yeah, I mentioned this in one of the other Allstate Mayhem threads.  If they used a stunt man, it looks pretty seamless.  Also, someone else pointed out how screwed-up his right hand is after he lands.  It looks like it's on the wrong arm!

I think his head is super-imposed, and the suit was put on backwards on the body.

^  You might be right about the head, but there's no way that that guy is falling forward down the stairs.

True, although technically, it would do a lot less physical damage to fall forwards than backwards. Could be blended with CGI...
