The commercial begins with a couple in bed. The wife wakes up from a dream saying " I just had a dream the house caught fire and we were on the street" the husband reassures her that it was just a dream and that the house was covered. Then, a home expert pops up from the bed and says they're covered. The husband then says "Am I still dreaming?" Then Dennis Haysbert sitting in a chair clicks on a light and says "No, you're in an Allstate commercial" That got a chuckle out of me. Plus the phrase "there's so many people in our bed" also tickles the funny bone.

I can't stand all the whispering. It's just so maddening, it's like every time it's on I'm like... UGH! Stop it! MUTE! Pinch

I beginning to hate this commercial too. Overplaying an ad can do that to you!

I'm actually beginning to question that this was a good ad in he first place!

I hate whispering in commercials, and this ad isn't funny. Man, I hate it.

I'm sick of it too, this was never a funny commercial in the first place! My first emotions were an illusion. I hate whispering!

Confused...I've never said a thing about this commercial because I think it was Mike Holmes' break into the U.S. commercial market - at least one of the first I've seen. For a man we like & respect (and actually lives within shouting distance), I was shocked he needed money that badly. If his fam was in that kind of money trouble, he could have simply called, rather than whore himself out on a cheap date with Allstate.
Daaaaaaaamn!

He was so much better back in his playing days with the Indians.
