I realise the painting has become a kind of popular symbol of farm life, but the fact that the original subjects were siblings makes this kind of...disturbing...

Makes me think of the old "New Country Cornflakes" commercial from my youth.

Ever heard of a roll in the hay? The animals must be tired so they are ready for humans? The cabs of a new combine are almost as nice as a caddy.
Tiz, you need more fiber. ie   The grain our farmers produce. Enjoy it while it last before the USA is a desert, coast to coast.

Listening to that commercial for half of its 29 second runtime gave me an instant headache.  No kidding at all.  Dead

I totally thought this commercial was a spoof on something.... until I came to the sad realization that it's real. I get that it could be a valuable resource to folks who live in sparsely settled areas and (like someone else said) work strange hours - but couldn't they at least have made it so that people's first impressions aren't like, "Oh, this is weird and hilarious - can't wait to see what it's a parody of!"?

I thought it had something to do with Farmer's Insurance.
 
Now, if they had said Organic Farmers, I would have given it a look-see.

Their slogan ought to be "We put the Orgy in Organic Farming."
