Allstate has quite a few memorable ads lately. I have written about a few of them, one catching on because of the beautiful island featured in the ad titled “Island,” which you can read about here. Or another about a controversial hood ornament, more on that here.
Now, though, Allstate shows a woman driving into Allstate town, and she gets a wave of endorphins after learning she has saved a bunch of money by switching to Allstate. Here’s the ad…
The Location. It’s not really Allstatetown. Going by the bridge (Pont de la Baells) in the last shot, this ad takes place in Spain… a bit north of Barcelona. Notice the green railing and the wall of rock as you approach the end of this bridge in the screen shot below from Google maps, then compare it with the last shot in the ad. Kudos to YouTube user Dani Marin for figuring this out!
The Music… playing in the background is “Private Gondola” by Jung Youth. Here is the full track.
The Dog. The pup in this ad looks like a vizsla. Gosh are they beautiful or what?
The crabs. The crabs in this ad look like dinner. My guess is they wouldn’t be dancing if they knew their fate.
Thanks for stopping by!
