    so in this commercial, the wife catches her husband on the phone at some ungodly hour in the morning. She thinks it's some chick. He tells her it's "Jake . . . from State Farm."

    Suspend all doubts about the imperative of the commercial, but wouldn't the guy look twice as bad talking to some random dude late at night while his wife is presumably asleep, than what she suspects, another woman?

    This poses a puzzling dilemma, and it's not to purchase insurance.


    If I was that guy in the bathrobe, I think I'd rather lie and say it is a chick, and "sorry honey, you busted me" before hanging up straightaway. I'd rather have her think I was talking to some chick on the phone than let her think I was talking to some anonymous guy.

    Jake, himself, is alone in his cubicle, with another guy in the office that looks like an Asian cardboard cutout.

    The whole scenario is dubious at best.

    The wife is a shrill who just might drive a guy to homosexuality, so there's that . . .

    The commercial creeps on many levels.

    Your opinion please?

    Thank you.

    Subliminal messaging that pushes gay acceptance.
