There are 3 of these new commercials according to iSpot. They have disabled the videos. I found this one on YouTube.

^^^YES! I saw that about the idiot raising possibly the most dangerous bird on earth - just a little more dangerous than an emu. 
Makes one wonder what Liberty was thinking when they put out this series of commercials.

Liberty Mutual ... These adholes are very rapidly becoming one of my top hated advertisers. You know what, Liberty? Come here... sit down ... now you listen to me. Stop it. OK? Stop it. Cut the crap, put down the hashpipe, and quit putting stupid-ass tripe like this on my television. It's companies like YOU, that have made me have to watch sporting events with the sound off, and to constantly record everything else, just to fast-forward through garbage like this. I can't watch live broadcasts anymore. I just can't. Stop. All right? STOP IT!

I don't like these emu commercials because they're cashing in on an idea I had first.

In 2015 I posted a series of stories about a man and his companion ostrich at www.smashwords.com. In 2016 I took the stories down and published them as a book on Amazon. The book is called INCIDENTAL CONTACT - THE WEIRD MENACE ADVENTURES OF O'RYAN AND HIS OSTRICH. It's available for anyone to see. Three years later Liberty Mutual starts running their commercials about a man and an emu. 

I've contacted them several times about this but they don't reply. I don't understand the reason they're ignoring since I'm not asking anything of them other than a simple polite acknowledgement that I had the idea before they did.

I can see your concern, but in a way I would also have to brush it aside as that would be like the writers of the TV series 'Lassie'  going after the writer of the song 'Me and You and a Dog named Boo'...and I bet that is what's happening to you (with all due respect, I'm not trying to make light of your situation).

Sorry, PaWolf, but your Lassie –Boo analogy doesn't hold water. In the song, Boo is just a sideline character, mentioned only in the chorus, and plays no role in the verses. He could easily be left out and no one would notice. My stories, and later book, are about a quirky human male actively engaging in scenarios with a large flightless bird—which is exactly what the Liberty Mutual commercials are presenting. And as I said, I'm not demanding anything of them. I'm not threatening legal action or seeking compensation. All I'm asking is that they acknowledge the existence of my book coming before their ad campaign.

When Mister Ed first appeared, the creators of the show had no problem with admitting, off-air, that Francis the Talking Mule preceded them. So what harm could there be in Liberty Mutual doing the same thing? How could it hurt them? They even went so far as to delete my post when I commented on their Facebook page. That, it seems to me, is rather shoddy behavior for a company that advertises itself as caring for others.

I saw the Liberty Mutual commercial the other day.  It was followed by a Blue Bunny Ice Cream commercial.  I thought the guy in the LibMu commercial was the same guy as the Blue Bunny guy.  So I looked it up.  Turns out he wasn't, but I then noticed that the LibMu guy actually was the same as the State Farm guy.

LOL

As a general rule, emu meat should be cooked to an internal temperature of between 150 and 160 degrees F (66 - 71 C). This will cook emu steaks and roasts to "rare" or "medium rare." Longer cooking will cause it to become dry. Grilling works well with these meats.

Don't forget Allstate/Esurance. Their little subtle slams at Geico as being a "cut-rate insurance company" is childish, when they themselves are known for bad service.

On the other hand, I just got a cheap 2000s sedan and guess who I insured it with? State Farm. 'Mah-sheshed' aside, their commercials are somewhat tolerable, and my insurance agent is awesome. My payment each month is cheaper than any other place I could have gotten it with. Up your liberty a$$ Liberty Mutual. AngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngry

The point is that they needed a "fun" mascot like every other insurance company advertising out there.  And I guess they thought liberty mutual would be a natural.

There is no real "point".

They simply took the first two letters of each word in the company name LI-berty MU-tual (Limu) then found the only animal whose name rhymes with Limu which is of course, Emu.

Limu Emu.

Companies have used animals as their mascots for decades.

Tony the Tiger, the Charmin bears, Spuds (Budweiser) McKenzie, Chester the (Cheetos) Cheetah, Elsie the (Borden) cow, Joe Camel, the Energizer Bunny, the Kellogg's frog...

Nothing new, complicated or special about it.

Maybe they realized that viewers were hitting "Mute" prior to the jingle-bomb at the end of the advert, so they decided to fire a preemptive strike with the "LEE-moo EE-moo!" at the beginning!

I'm amazed none of you got the joke. The commercial is a riff on 70s cop/buddy shows like Starsky and Hutch. Doug's hair and mustache should be the giveaway along with the music when they run thru the streets.

That doesn't excuse the gross overplay, though. I laughed once. Now I'm sick of it, too.

I think you're assuming nobody got the 70's cop show vibe just because it wasn't brought up.

I got it, but I just didn't feel it merited mentioning in the context of the question posed by NJtoTX.

The 70's cop show thing is more of an incidental point.

And so I can imagine Liberty Mutual licensing a miniature yellow Duster complete with "LiMu Emu & Doug" action figures. Hell, there are ProgFlo dolls (I couldn't bring myself to post a picture of one).

Yesterday I must have seen LIMU EMU at least 10, 12, maybe 15 times. In one f*cking day! My constant hate for this godawful company will never go away. Not to mention the 2 or 3 times I've heard the Limu Emu radio ads, in which I change the channel as soon as that 'Limu Emu!' jingle begins. Fking bulls--t. Enough is enough, I've had it with their stupid ad campaign. And their liberty x4 jingle is just icing on the nails-on-the-chalkboard commercials.

Good god! AngryAngryDeadDead

Some comments from the Liberty Mutual Facebook page.

https://www.facebook.com/frank.lindhorst" rel="nofollow - Frank Lindhorst Why are your commercials so extremely highly annoying?? They are not funny at all and just turn people away. I would never even consider giving you my business knowing that parts of my payments are used for that absolute nonsense.


https://www.facebook.com/libertymutual/" rel="nofollow - Liberty Mutual Insurance Thank you for your concern, Lisa. No animals were harmed in the making of our ads. While all the final images of the Emu were not real, it is based on live emus that were involved with the initial shoot. A representative from the humane society was present for the initial shoot where the live emu was on set.


https://www.facebook.com/joan.huddleston.92" rel="nofollow - Joan Huddleston I am concerned about the unpleasant way that man treats the emu. It is not funny. Not sure why you think this is important. Not compassionate at all.


https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1407007928" rel="nofollow - Suzanne Sargent Whiteaker Please fire your Ad Firm. I can do better than that.

Confused ...think it was yesterday - maybe the day before - when I saw a LM commercial with only 'Doug'. Limu wasn't anywhere in the picture, nor mentioned. And the 'Big Surprise'? The commercial wasn't even funny.

There are several new LiMu Emu commercials out now. What annoys me is, they release all of this information yet they pull down the video! WHY! Angry

We're Sorry
This commercial has been removed at the request of the advertiser

Doug and the LiMu Emu are on the stakeout to inform some new homeowners that Liberty Mutual Home Insurance can be customized to fit their needs. Doug wants to take a quick cat nap and asks the Emu to keep watch and warn him if anything happens. He should've been more specific as the Emu goes into high-alert when a pinecone falls on the car.

There's also one where DB Doug is given the key to the city...Wacko  STFU!!!  Angry

More braindead content from the worst insurance company...tied with Geico and Progressive...on television. They could have kept the 'Human' Human League campaign and I wouldn't mind them. Those were tolerable. Then they started throwing that Brad s--t on us. Now it's Limu Emu and that stinkin horrible jingle at the end. And the Zoltan. Slap in the face to the ordinary television viewer. My mute button is WORN OUT. I vow NEVER to use this company as long as I live. Fk off Liberty Liberty Liberty my a$$. My signature won't change until you get rid of this asinine campaign and the awful jingle. AngryAngryAngryAngry

It's companies like YOU, that have made me have to watch sporting events with the sound off, and to constantly record everything else, just to fast-forward through garbage like this. I can't watch live broadcasts anymore. I just can't. Stop. All right? STOP IT!

Uh... Liberty Mutual? You're not listening to me. Are you? I told you to stop it. Didn't I? Angry

I am SICK TO DEATH of stupid Doug with his stupid sunglasses and his stupid porno 'stache, and the stupid jingle, and... there it is again! THE JINGLE JUST PLAYED AGAIN! I'm not kidding! GAAAHHH! There are no words, OK? There are NO WORDS! ... guhhhh... Confused

Earlier today I saw the newest Limu Emu garbage, where the doofus gets the 'keys to the city'. They should be getting dried up turds, not a freakin' award!!! Why would some marketing whiz (not) try to greenlight something like this, and somehow the company thinks it's a great idea? AngryAngry

I'm not that big of a fan of these Limu Emu ads. I like the 70's vibe, but since day 1 these ads starting aired I'm getting tired of seeing them every day it seems. Time for a new ad campaign, although I can't imagine the next campaign will be any better than most of the commercials they've put out these past 5 years. I wish they'd go back to the "Humans" series.

Such a stupid ad campaign!

I've noticed on two of these ads some weird dubbing.
On one of the "key to the city" ads where doofus is going to each microphone at the press stand, when he supposedly says one in Spanish, you can tell his lips are not actually in sync with the sound, he's saying it in English and is being dubbed in Spanish.
One the "struggling actor" where he struggles to get the line right, at the end you here the director say, "We'll dub it." A voice comes on and says the line, but if you watch the actor's lips, he actually does say the line correctly!

That's all I have to say about that.

I think that was the point of it---to make it look like the dubbing in those 1950s Japanese sci-fi flicks.

That's certainly what they're doing at the end of this one...
