Subject: Those Liberty Mutual commercials

Written By: violet_shy on 11/23/20 at 10:13 pm

I like them, and wish they would come up with more of them! My favorite one is the one with the kids..."this game's boring".

I kind of like the Progressive commercials more, like the 2 Progressive On Ice ones and the Progressive Theme Park. They take me back to the beginning of the pandemic time when I first started working from home and binge watching on Hulu (not that I feel nostalgic about it or anything).

Eh, they're all right. They're less cringy than the Progressive ones at least.

I certainly hope not. I hope we haven't reached the point in the out of control "nostalgia" craze where people are feeling "nostalgic" about the "early pandemic period".  :o

In 10 years, people will look fondly upon 2020.

The nostalgia for a year usually kicks in about 10 years later.

So people will look back fondly upon the virus and be "nostalgic" about it (nostalgia, of course, being a yearning for something experienced in the past)? I don't recall people looking back fondly at 9/11 ten years after and yearning for it. REMEMBERING it yes. HONORING those that were lost, yes. But nostalgic?

Some people had very bad outcomes of the early pandemic days, job loss or sickness.

But there were some good memories for me about the early pandemic period. It was too cold to do anything outside anyway, so I played music and stuff inside. I had an excuse to relax for awhile. Anybody who could was working from home and we had cutting edge stuff like SNL and Jimmy Fallon, etc, in their pajamas. We had commercials and things saying things like we can get through this together. Also my phone was silent from spam calls for a change.

My drive to work was so nice with almost nobody on the road. I bought a months worth of food so I didn’t have to go anywhere. We were getting perks like virus pay for essential workers, vouchers to support local take out businesses. Split shifts and set your own hours so I chose to sleep in every day and work a later shift. We had salutes for essential workers too.

Now we have 10x the daily cases as we did at that early pandemic peak, yet it seems like nobody gives a rats behind anymore.

I was always baffled by 80s nostalgia.  We had a deadly pandemic, racial tensions, tremendous wealth inequality.  Some people have very selective memories, I guess.  It's entirely possible we could have 2020 nostalgia at some point in the future.

Don't forget the drastic and immediate pendulum swing to conservatism too. Reagan. The "Star Wars" missile program, etc. And the music was just plain awful compared to the ground breaking brilliance that had come just before in the 60s and 70s. I just don't get the 80s-cultists-who-weren't-born-yet that tend to populate this site. I don't know, maybe they just like that kind of stuff. A lot of people liked it in the actual 80s too, that's why it was popular. Much to my bafflement even then. I guess some things never change.  ;D

Back on topic, I much prefer the Farmers Insurance ads.  especially the "dog pool" and the flying truck - Covered it

I like this GEICO one. It's also from the pandemic time. I used to always say "that's a waste of toilet paper!" at around 0:22.

Nostalgic for 2020. Just like people were nostalgic for 1967 even though the Vietnam war was raging back then.

The nostalgia glass is always half full.

The only Liberty commercial I like was the out of work actor. I'm sure that actor had fun making that commercial. And I hate the emu ones.

That actually reminded me of Mike Tyson's Punch-Out for the NES. There's one part of the game when you're training along the waterfront with the NYC skyline in the background.

What about the GEICO commercials like the renters having a "clogging" problem (the traditional Dutch dance with the wooden shoes) and one with the RATT problem (the metal rock band)?
