Here we thought last week’s BBDO Throwback Thursday campaign for Twix would fill our 90s nostalgia quotient for the month.
But a coming campaign created by DDB Chicago to promote State Farm promises to pack in more former Saturday Night Live stars than an Adam Sandler movie.
Here’s the first spot:
Nice to see Rob Schneider get work when he’s not busy blaming Big Pharma for Robin Williams’ suicide.
Unfortunately, the promised Hans and Franz spot is not yet available; only the spot above hit trade pubs today as a teaser for the four-part campaign set to air during the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday.

Will the kids remember these skits, or will they be inspired to scroll through old seasons of SNL on Netflix?
(We were hoping for a Stuart Smalley appearance, but Al Franken apparently has more important things to do.)
