Friday funnies: humorous insurance commercials

It’s Friday, it’s the summertime, and we’ve been falling down on the job of our secret mission to bring you some of the most humorous insurance ads on the web. We’ll take care of that right away!
The first is a humorous ad from Travelers, a spoof public service ad that makes the point that it is silly – almost superstitious – to rely on luck for protection. It was a short-lived ad because although most people found it clever, cute or outright hilarious, some animal rights activists were concerned about the message. Note: no animals whatsoever were harmed in this commercial.

The following ad is from a company called “1st for Women” which describes itself as the first insurance brokerage to offer insurance products specifically tailored to meet the short-term insurance needs of South African women. The ad offers a tongue in cheek explanation of why the company decided to focus its services exclusively on women.
