Sneak peek at State Farm’s new ‘Not the One’ spot

After meeting Jake, a new face of State Farm who appeared during the company’s Super Bowl pregame spot, consumers might be wondering where the brand is headed next.

Now, the wondering is over, and it was hilariously worth the wait.

Launching tomorrow, State Farm’s new multi-year campaign, Like a Good Neighbor, re-envisions how the brand will present itself.

The first completely original spot of the new campaign, titled, Not the One, showcases how consumers will see Jake From State Farm in culturally relevant moments moving forward. Created by Chicago agency The Marketing Arm, the spot was completed with help from a number of Windy City Shops including Whitehouse Post, The Mill, and Another Country.

Extensive consumer research informed the campaign idea, modernizing State Farm’s iconic brand into its storytelling. As a result, the campaign spotlights a new Jake from State Farm and the Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there.® slogan.
