Liberty Mutual Emu Wedding Commercial – The Bride, the Costumes, and More!

Not too long ago Doug and Emu were chatting it up with a woman on a park bench. That was when Emu scurried away and Doug’s bird calls brought in all sorts of crazy birds. More on that ad here. Now the duo is back, but in fact it’s a trio because Emu is getting married! Take a look at the ceremony with Emu and his fiancé Linda…


The officiant (Doug, played by actor David Hoffman), the bride, and groom are all wearing sunglasses. No one else at the wedding is, although some have on regular reading glasses.

I particularly like some of the wardrobe choices for the cast of this commercial. Kevin, who self-assuredly objects to the wedding, is wearing a Kenny Chesney style puka shell necklace.

Towards the end of the ad, there’s an emu with flowing blond hair. Hilarious! And another in what appears to be a military suit of some sort.

My favorite part, though, happens after Kevin objects to the nuptuals. Doug rebukes Kevin and while he’s doing that, Emu lets out a tiny chirp and it just makes me laugh every time.


Is Linda, the bride, the same emu seen in the Liberty Mutual cookout commercial from a few years back? Or did Limu Emu find another girlfriend since then? Based on the hairstyle and sunglasses, I’d say it’s the same female emu, and their relationship developed into a marriage.


Do you like the random ad from Liberty Mutual? Did they tie in their messaging well, or not?

Thanks for dropping in…

  1. The main advice I have for someone that has a point of view like yours is – don’t watch TV or listen to commercials. Be aware of yourself being a consumer, as well as what you are purchasing.
    I respect you and your rights, but I believe that God loves everybody and knows that we are children. Mistakes are forgiven. For instance, the cruel and inumane treatment of baby animals, and all animals that are raised FOR their meat for us to eat. We know we’re actually hurting them, but we don’t stop. We are very immature, and God is loving and forgiving.
    But I also think that God probably loves humor. We don’t want to hurt anyone, and I hope that the Emus were treated well.
    Marriage started over 4,000 yrs ago. Unfortunately, marriage wasn’t based on love (Romans, Hebrews, Greeks). Its purpose was for a man to ‘own’ a woman and to guarantee that children were the husbands biological heirs. It was common for the men to have a lot of different sexual partners outside of their “marriage”. LATER, well after that, RELIGION got involved. And much later than that, romantic love finally got involved.
    It’s all so interesting!
    But I know that God wants us to LOVE each other. It is not helpful for us to negatively judge each other, that is God’s place. Maybe it’s disrespectful of God for you to judge? Let God do that. You will be helping God by being more like Jesus- – – Love, don’t hate. Take actions that are out of Love.
