State Farm Supplies LeBron with World’s Smallest Violin

How did Miami Heat forward LeBron James and his buddy smash an SUV into a mail box and sever the head of a marble lion statue in the middle of the day? We may never know, but thankfully his State Farm agent arrived to the scene well before the cops showed up and started asking these difficult questions.

Though this spot from Translation NY refuses to respond directly to the anti-LeBron smear campaign competitor Allstate has been running in the Chicago area, it still uses the familiar magical jingle State Farm insurance is pushing in all of their commercials. Sadly, this spot doesn’t have an appearance from “The Girl From 4E” or Weezer. If a “binky for Baby Bron-Bron” doesn’t sound appropriate, maybe State Farm could add Boston Celtics center Glen “Big Baby” Davis to its ever-growing roster of celebrity endorsers. Credits after the jump.

Verizon’s FiOS Will Occupy Children Anywhere

Kids: is there anything more annoying? Always asking their stupid questions and making those terrible shrieking sounds, isn’t it about time that they can just watch SpongeBob SquarePants 24/7 and never bother you for anything again? Enter Verizon’s FiOS network and this spot from McCann NY. With one network, your kids can shut up for hours whether they’re watching TV, your laptop, or you cell phone.

Okay, so you might not leave your kids alone with your laptop or your cellphone all of time time for fear that they might break or lick your electronic devices. But, Verizon’s FiOS does run on a fiber-optic network, making it the first integrated network geared towards home use to do so. More importantly, when has Comcast’s ads featured something as cool as a house that transforms into a doctor’s office that transforms into a car in seemingly one take?

While it’s not available everywhere, FiOS has steadily climbed to over three-million television and internet subscribers nationwide. This sleek campaign tells us that Verizon wants to make a big push with its network this holiday season, continuing to expand its coverage and targeting new demographics. We should also note that this ad is much more entertaining than having to sit through an entire Transformers movie, Megan Fox‘s presence notwithstanding.

Credits and another spot after the jump.
