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.
Check out a sneak peek below.
NOT THE ONE
State Farm & the NBA
State Farm is also continuing its creative work in the NBA and basketball space.
Upcoming ads will feature NBA All-Star Chris Paul, Jake from State Farm and new to the State Farm roster, renowned actor Alfonso Ribeiro. This series of humorous NBA spots will debut during NBA All-Star Weekend.
State Farm is coming up on its 100-year anniversary, and the brand aims to preserve and honor the equity it has created.
What you’ll see moving forward is State Farm understanding the strongest components of its branding, and using them to stay top-of-mind for an audience that is bombarded with tons of new messages every day.
