Commercial Wars: The Insurance Battle


The internet is about choice and what could be a better way to show freedom and choice then by voting on which video is the best or worst? This week we have two auto insurance companies from Chicago Illinois fighting for worst and/or funniest video.

Eagle Insurance

This is a car insurance company that is based in my home town of Chicago. In 1993 this commercial was created by RDR productions and since it aired has become part of internet fame even showing up on E! channels, The Soup, the BBC and Late Night with David Letterman.

Linoln Insurance

These guys have been in business for over 50 years and you can see that they know making a weird commercial will get them traffic. The company even added a category to their website called Funny TV Commercials to profile what they have done.
