    This was awesome. It says so much without words.

    I don't cave to marketing schemes often, but I'm trading cars in a month and I'll check out Allstate for sure.

    The big hand thing was kinda bizarre but very nice message.

    If they sold bicycle insurance, I'd use them in a heartbeat.

    Oh wow that was very beautiful, and the end gave me shivers.

    Didn't realize that was Eli Lieb either at the end, amazing singer.

    Full song if you want to listen to it:

    I'm embarrassed to say because his single is very Top 40, but I can't help liking it because it's so catchy and he's actually a really good singer (I watched his cover songs on youtube).



    I keep hitting replay ugh.

    NorthwestBoy1980 saidThey just want your money.


    They can have it. I can easily remember a time...not too long ago...during prop 22 in California when not one corporation would openly support us. We did not even have any printed signs to fight against it because there was not enough money to do it. We had to make our own. And at that time, it was not easy to put signs up in front of our homes for those that did not live in heavily 'gay community' areas. That there are corporations that are openly supporting us to this degree is huge change!

    Agreed. It is amazing how much (genuine) cynicism is in the word "just." Does Allstate want my money? Yes. Does it "just" want my money? Well, they wouldn't have made that commercial, right? How do I know that? Because there are plenty of other U.S. corporations who "just" want my money... and haven't made that commercial.

    There's nothing wrong with them wanting my money; they're a business: but they've clearly thought about it and want more than "just" my money. Have you thought about the number of their clients who might call and say they no longer want to do business with the "fag insurance company"???? AllState has thought about that, too; and we've seen their decision.

    Every company wants money, but I remember the days when few companies would dare go after LGBT business, so I still appreciate it when companies PROVE that they want our business.

    He is being mocked because he is different...for HAVING a "big hand", get it?

    They're trying to conflate the idiocy of laughing at someone for having a "big hand" with their "safe hands" policy; big hands are "better" and safer (look how well he throws the baseball).

    Great commercial and nice they "humanized" it in the end. More of a personal touch.

    And to those complaining, show me ONE for profit company, not in it for the money. This is why they call it capitalism.

    NorthwestBoy1980 saidThey just want your money. Period.


    Even though yes, they want your money so does every other insurance company. At least they are speaking out. I think it's great marketing.

    That is the only reason they are "speaking out" as you say. They see an opportunity to make more money and know how to play the gays in order to get it.


    What's the difference between a motive and a reason?
