This isn't on youtube so I don't know how to post it here so here's the link:

I cringed when I first saw this commercial.

How fake can State Farm get?

Using a theme song from the 80's smells of desperation...

Oh well at least quiet and not annoying but it sure does seem like they ran out of ideas.Thumbs Down

Not good.
This will definitely backfire when the masses stop and remember the insurance company does NOT know their name.  We are just numbers to them.

What is with State Farm the last couple of years?  They have so many sh*tty, sh*tty commercials constantly airing.  Their ad men need to tone it down a notch.

Sung to Cheers theme:
 
Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got.
Buying State Farm, sure would help a lot!

Wouldn't you like to pay, pay, pay?

Sometimes you have to go

Where everybody is treated the same,
and we're always glad you suckers came.
You gonna be where you can't see,
our insurance company is so lame
You gonna be where nobody knows
our game.

You gonna go where claims are settled slow, 
State Farm treats you all the same,
You gonna go where nobody knows
your name.

its because all these suits and ties who create these commercials are stuck in the past and think that people of this generation find stuff like "Cheers" and "Rocket man" funny when in reality most people either don't care, don't find it funny or don't understand what they are talking about.  It's about time for some of these suits and ties to hang it up and retire from creating commercials, most of them aren't funny and all of them follow the same template

minorities and/or women: the smart know-it-all geniuses who solve all the problems and are looked up as the great ones

I agree. I used to watch Cheers with my dad. Hearing the theme song in an insurance ad.... a terribly lame insurance ad makes me mad. Leave my nostalgia alone you fu&$ers!!!!! Angry

In 2005, I had a pneumonia that was accompanied by deadened tissue around my larynx, which caused my voice to sound a few octaves below that of Tom Waits.  This lasted months.  As I was getting better, I'd sing the Cheers theme every day in the shower to gauge my voice.  When, one day, I reached the part "Where everybody knows your name", and my voice didn't completely disappear, I knew things were on the mend.

Great theme song.  Horrible commercial.  Horrible company.

Gary Portnoy must have been REALLY hard up for cash...

I really hate when I sing the original song to an ad and they cut out lines.

They'll have less to pay him, since I'm switching my car insurance from State Farm to another company next week.  (2 cars @ $700 for 6 mos. vs 2 cars @ $670 for 12 mos.)  Starve the Beast enough and it will die....  LOL
