1. Current Commercials: Allstate “Mayhem” FTW

    I have to hand out some kudos to Allstate for their “Mayhem” series of commercials. I have become a big, big fan.

    Allstate gets Bonus Points from me because insurance is very much relevant to successful personal finance. Heck, you could pretty much take these commercials and turn them into “This is why you need an Emergency Fund” spots with just some simple dialogue mods.

    More Bonus Points for that guy’s deadpan, “I’m all, OMG, Becky’s not even hot.”

    Pure, unadulterated viewing goodness. (As commercials go.)
