Farmers Insurance continues its Hall of Claims ad campaign with a new spot, revealing another unbelievable but true claim that Farmers has covered.
The 15-second spot, titled “Fly-By Ballooning,” recreates a situation that took place on October 27, 2017, when a man in a hot air balloon lost control of the transportation means, damaged a car parked near a grocery store and then flew on his way, not before leaving, though, his phone number on a piece of paper to the car owner and asking him to call him.
The commercial ends with Prof. Burke – played by Academy Award-winning actor J.K Simmons – telling a customer, while looking at a small version of a hot air balloon, in the Hall of Claims, “A Fly-By Ballooning. Seen it, covered it. We know a thing or two because we’ve seen a thing or two”.
Launched in 2016, the “Hall of Claims” campaign has featured, so far, many other “real-life bizarre insurance claims,” from household accidents to unexpected run-ins with animals to car crashes, that the insurance company dealt with. The insurance company has even created an interactive website called “Hall of Claims,” based on real insurance claims compiled by Farmers’ network of agents and its claims professionals.
