Why did LM pull this ad for months, only to bring it back? And what is their pitch? You can be a sh*tty driver, "smash your car into a tree" "total" poor Brad, etc., and that's okay? It's permissible to be a bad driver?

Sometimes it seems like these companies run out of fresh 'meat' for their ads and run some of our 'favorites', like this stellar example of huffy cuteness. At least shes not threatening 'there will be PAIN' like Orange Afro does on one of these winners..

Saw it last night night, why the f did they bring her back??!

If freggin multi billion dollar RX corporations can spew out new commercials every few months (ex. these new over dramatic, borderline silly ads from Stelara, Humira, Costenyx, etc. etc) Why can't multi-billion dollar Liberty Mutual ditch this damn campaign, especially retire this whiny little twit! 

Not just her, others spokes-idiots mentioning "your insurance company will only pay for  1/2, do they want you driving on 3 wheels?" or the redhead business woman "You should have done more research" (I'm paraphrasing, amazing though I see them so much I don't know the script by heart

By golly, bring back 'I'm Only Human'! Those were half-watchable compared to 'BRADDDDDD...you LOVEDDDD BRADDDDD...' STFU!

I will bet you three-quarters of a car that Liberty Mutual has "Brad" on the books for "Goodwill" or "fair market value of Intangible assets".  They've sunk so much money into "him", they simply can't write it off.  (Goodwill is a great place for companies to help hide otherwise poor financial data.  Write it off when things improve - which they will never do with commercials like this.  It's a vicious circle.)
 
By way of contrast, Chevy should have discounted their "Real People" campaigns as negative goodwill a long time ago!

Yep, saw it the other day and was like why on earth did they bring this back? Was there like a serious demand for more...Brad, or is their ad budget getting lower so rather than spend money on a new one they just brought back the "classic"?

I love this 80's band. They were from the region where I grew up and I can hear it in their accents when they sing.

Back in the day I was soooo HOT for those two girl singers, especially the dark haired one, and especially after seeing her in this video, which was my favorite one of the only two songs of theirs that I liked...
