This commercial is just STRANGE!

It has been playing over and over for years!

It has people.. mainly children.. happily proclaiming when they "got" their life insurance.

To me this sounds kinda sick.

"Mine was earned in Jabouti Africa in 2004"

"Vietnam in 1972"

"Fort Benning Georgia in 1999"

Am I missing something.. or are these HAPPILY people proclaiming when their loved ones died and they were able to get their life insurance???

They are talking about any insurance USAA sells. Military dependents are eligible for USAA. I have tried USAA and was not pleased. I think they would actually sell their insurance to anyone who has a pulse and a buck. The old GIECO was only available to military and federal employees. They're not so picky now!

It is insurance companies they are lying to us. We have to have it. Pay up and move on. I went with USAA for renter's insurance. $14.95 per month for $25,000 coverage. Two months later I was charged $30 per month. I cancelled and went to my primary insurance company (State Farm). $12 per month for $37,000 coverage. Two years later I am still paying $12 per month.

When you do the jingle does your agent show up with a sandwich and a dollar?

God, I hate that commercial.  Seems like we should have a thread on it here, but I don't know if we do.  I'd start one, but that would require me to view the commercial.

No. I get the usual ugly purse. After I buy ugly matching shoes I have spent all my beer money. There are no good deals concerning insurance.

I never join forums --they never seem user friendly so pardon me --since I am a 1st time user.   I had to search for a place to express how much I hate the UsAA insurance commercial. I usually turn it off. There is not one redeeming factor in it even from their point of view. It makes you feel like you got lucky by the fact of your birth so why might I try to get this insurance---I was not lucky by my birth.---I never heard of this insurance until now so it must have been like a closed club before and now they are opening it up to others. I do not want to be a member of such a group. And these kids yes, so unreal, like they are really caring about their insurance. It is riding the coat tails of our support of our military. So if you care about our military you will buy tis insurance. I hate this so much because of the frequency that I am bombarded with it.

The "Fort Banning Georgia 1999" is like nails on a chalkboard or a rake on the sidewalk. I mute it if I have the chance.

I think there are other threads about this, but I hate it so much, I'll respond again.

  • Who was it that decided that kids who can't pronounce words is cute?
  • Do they really think that I'm buying it that they are doing this out of the goodness of their heart, and not for $$$?
  • I earned mine in Pensacola, FL in 1985, but their rates were worse that State Farm so I told them to pound sand.

Actually it was their Navy. When I joined the American Legion The person signing me up told me about an embarrassing situation. He asked a new member the usual question if they had any relative that was eligible to join? They replied "my father is a WW2 veteran". He asked what branch of service? The reply: Wehrmacht (German Army).

I absolutely hate this commercial. I still can't make out what the little boy is garbling out at the beginning, "Slobbergarbledlisping Djibouti Africa" WTF?? How do you start a commercial with incomprehensible words from a kid who is too young, clearly, to even know what he's saying? I still don't really get the point of what all of these NOT CUTE or ADORABLE kids is trying to say. If I can't understand them and I don't even know what they're selling, why do they run this frickin ad every 10 minutes? Enough already!

Yeah the commercial makes no sense.

I can't tell if they are saying "Mine was earned" or "I was earned"

And how is it earned??   Does someone have to die before they
get their insurance?

Are they proudly proclaiming the day that their loved one died
so they were able to inherit the insurance?

Seems awful!   And stack on top of that making KIDS make the declaration!

YES!!!!! YES!!!! Someone else finally sees this stupid thing the way I do. I've been saying all along, are these kids announcing when their father (or other relative) died so they could have insurance "handed down" to them? Talk about morbid!!
And aside from that, I am really getting sick and tired of our members of the armed services being elevated to "saint" status simply because they signed up for military service. Join the Army and automatically become a hero just for signing up. What about the policeman, fireman, or ambulance driver? Aren't they heroes too?  Where's the special insurance company for them? What about the rest of us? Don't we work hard and spend money to keep our economy growing and keep this nation strong? Where's our insurance break?
In addition to being an annoying POS, this ad highlights another major problem we have here in the "greatest country in the world". 
Don't get me wrong, I'm not as anti-military as this may sound. But think about it. The last time our troops actually defended this country was world war two. And now we have a commercial to rub it in.

The radio ads are just as bad, especially Major Osborne's daughter going on and on with a drawn-out story (when most people would just say "He got drafted during Vietnam") she thought was funny.  I'm sure she got a few snarglefarts from laughing at her own lame jokes....

It's not as if the government or military is insuring the members.  The members are insuring each other.  This isn't run by the US.
 
Nor is it a corporation like a Progressive or an Allstate.  In fact, because there are no shareholders, profits go back to the members.  It's just a different sort of business model. 
 
And it was originally set up precisely because the Progressives and Allstates of the era considered the military to be high-risk, and wouldn't insure them.
 
As far as "where's the special insurance company for policemen and firemen"...I'd imagine that any group could start this sort of business and offer services to only its preferred group.  In fact, I think Fireman's Fund started out for only firemen and their families.

Is that the point they're trying to make?

I've never paid close enough attention to it or thought about it enough to have figured out WTF it's supposed to mean.

To me it is just more yammering nirwit background noise that gets tuned out & ignored.

I'm pretty sure that's what it means.   They are either saying "I was earned" or "Mine was earned"

How do you "earn" this insurance for your relatives??
