Allstate: Being Passive-Aggressive/ Antisocial is funny now!
Pretty much every YouTube commentator/glue-sniffer adores this ad. They all find it LOL OMIGD SO FREAKING FUNNY, thanking Allstate for "finally depicting a smart man in a commercial for a change," and begging the company for more commercials just like this EPIC BTW WHO IS THE MOM SHE IS SO HOT ad.
Personally? I wonder why the hell this guy is ok with the job of carting around his idiot zombie family, or why no adult in any commercial featuring cell phones has any control at all over when they are used and when they are off. (Great modeling there, btw, Mom.) I wonder what would be so horrible about this guy saying "turn your phones off when you're in the car and talk to eachother like human beings. Pretend we're a family or something." But apparently that simply isn't done anymore.
Instead, we get an ad which would only be funny if the husband was saying something like "you idiots have no idea that I've cleaned out the bank account and am going to fake my own death so I can be with my mistress starting Friday night. And maybe you won't even care until the phone bill comes and you realize how addicted you are to electronic stimulus. I'd almost like to see that. But not enough to stick around."
Now that would be a commercial worth gushing over. This? Not so much.
