Let’s face it – there’s nothing fun about car insurance. It costs a lot of money, and it always seems like insurance companies go to extremes to low ball you when you do have a claim. “We won’t pay for a body shop to fix your car unless you take it to Tijuana, Mexico, but we’ll send you $20 for Bondo and a can of Duplicolor. Oh, and we’re raising your rates by 50% because you had an accident.” We’ve all had conversations like this, and I’ll bet every one of us has said “insurance companies suck” at one time or another.
Maybe it’s not that bad, but sometimes it seems that way. If an insurance company can actually make me laugh with a commercial, that’s worth passing along. Allstate’s got a new series of TV ads featuring Mayhem, and they’re worth a chuckle or two. Here are the three best, and Allstate actually delivers a relevant message: sometimes saving a dollar or two on insurance will cost you money down the line. Before you buy a policy on price alone, make sure you know what it does and doesn’t cover. I’ve met Mayhem up close and personal on several occasions, and I was always thankful for good insurance afterwards. Anyway, enjoy the vids, because laughing at other people’s (fictional) misery is a great way to start the week.
