Boycott State Farm Insurance!

Bikers stand proud! I am calling for a boycott of State Farm Insurance by all of us who are trying to slow our driving habits and ride our bikes more often. The advertisement they are currently running has a man complaining that due to gas prices he has had to switch from driving to riding his bike and how embarrasing that is. Of course, State Farm claims at the end of the advert that by purchasing your car insurance through them you will save hundreds and will be able to spend those hundreds on gas afterall. Don’t worry about the fact that their is a war for oil going on, or that the planet is warming at an alarming rate. Just try to find some cheap insurance and keep driving your car, you fat ass. (Oh yeah, not to mention the obesity problem this country faces.) So those of us who ride bicycles need to band together, spread the word and do our best to boycott those creeps. Let’s all try to use our bikes more often, now that the weather is getting nicer you have less of an excuse. For more info on bikes and bike culture check out Time’s Up. So, are ya with me?

  3. I haven’t been able to find the ad online yet, so I am still looking and may have to record it with my video recorder and upload it.
    Thanks for your interest.

  4. I’m sorry this commercial offended anyone. State Farm has been a supporter of bicycle safety through the thousands of bicycle rodeos we’ve held for children throughout the US and Canada, and we are open to discussion about how State Farm may be able to work with the bicycling community in the future.
    This advertisement is part of an overall campaign where we attempt to capture consumers talking about points in their lives. Our intention is to recognize and empathize with these everyday challenges, and provide ways State Farm can help. 
    State Farm is also very concerned about doing what we can to improve health, safety and the environment in our communities. If you’d like more information on what we’re doing, go to statefarm.com (http://www.statefarm.com/about/csr/csr.asp)
