Adfreak, AgencySpy and Paste have all pointed to this new full length jingle, recorded by Weezer.
The song was actually written by a young Barry Manilow. He also wrote “I am stuck on Band-Aid, ’cause Band-Aids stick on me!” back in the day. To State Farm’s knowledge, the full song had never been recorded. After taking a look at the it, Weezer agreed to give it a go.
What do the band’s fans think? Surely, they’re ready to lynch them for being so overtly commercial. No, not exactly. Here’s one fan’s take:
It’s funny cuz you’d expect a positive and uplifting “like a good neighbor state farm is there” but it’s dark and ominous. It made me think of Devotion or Velouria. I really hope the new record has the same kind of tone.
State Farm is offering the MP3 of its newly rockin’ jingle on its Facebook page.
