Weezer’s State Farm Jingle Is Surprisingly Good
To anyone who feels Weezer hasn’t done anything of merit since Pinkerton, I offer you the following video of a jingle the band recorded for a State Farm Insurance ad. It is, admittedly, no “Sweater Song” or “Say it Ain’t So,” nor will it win the band any awards in the integrity department. But this track does bring to mind the Blue Album’s playful catchiness, and is certainly a stronger showing than most of what the band’s produced over the last ten years. Plus, it could be that, deep in their punk hearts, they’re only endorsing the insurance company ironically.” We’re almost willing to believe. You decide after the jump.
