There is a commercial for State Farm insurance with a black guy and a white girl standing on a city street discussing things that they can say on the internet.  Her boyfriend approaches who she says is a French model.  He clearly isn't French or a model, but is instead an unkempt, portly, older guy with a scruffy beard.
 
It looks like Gary Bussey to me.  Does anyone else agree?  Could it be him ?

I doubt it's him. I saw that commercial too. Gary Busey is 68 years old. The guy looks too young to be Busey.

But, the commercial is downright stupid.

State Farm will never see a dime from me.

Is this the commercial?
 
 
If so, no way.  Goofy-looking, but not Busey.

Can't see the video here at work, but Busey has a son that acts.

Insurance is the biggest rip off. My dad had car insurance for the longest time without getting into an accident.

He probably spent 10 thousand dollars over the years to his insurance company and when he finally got into an accident last year, the damage was 2,000 dollars and his insurance company only paid 1,000. Isn't that sick? He paid them over 10 grand over the years, and they couldn't pay the whole damage for him. Talk about cheap money hogs.

He clearly inherited Pop's teeth.

But yeah, regarding the commercial, it's neither Gary nor Jake.  I do see where there might be a slight resemblance if either one were wearing a dark wig, but it's not either one.

In Massachusetts the claim would wipe out safe driver points and trigger a surcharge for six years.  The insurance company would charge him back about $3,000 over the course of the surcharge perioid, thereby profiting from his accident.  And guess what, there's nothing you can do about it.

Oh I know. It is stupid, you pay them all that money for all those years and when you do get into an accident, they hardly want to pay anything

Can you imagine an insurance company that gives your money back every month if you aren't in an accident? I would switch to them in a heartbeat!

You pay for January, you don't get into an accident in January and that money rolls over to February. If you don't get into an accident in February, the money rolls over into March.

That would REALLY be an honest claim of "saving you money on car insurance."

because seriously, if I don't get into an accident, then WTF do they need to hold onto my money for?

How stupid do we all have to be to believe them when they say they're saving us money, when they spend tens of millions of dollars on commercials? How many different Allstate ads along do you think you saw in 2012? 10? 15? More? Add the Geico commercials, Progressive, Esurance... They're like half of all commercials on TV. And they're saving us money? What they're doing is raping us so they can make these crappy commercials that nobody seems to like. HHHHAAAAATTTTTEEEEE!!!

Holy crap, I think I just sh*t my pants! I hope that guy never breeds - 2 Busey's are way, WAY too much!
