Okay, I think it's a unanimous decision that Liberty Mutual has the MOST annoying and repulsive commercials on the TV these days. But this one.....
The "mother's" face at the end makes my sphincter snap shut like a shark jaw, and my stomach do an Olympic acrobat routine.

I had the same reaction to this commercial last year (or maybe the year before that, I can't remember exactly). 

I don't even understand the mom smiling at the end. It's not funny, its just stupid. It's like they're saying "Hahaha! Laugh, damn you!" to the viewer. 

I was hoping someone would make a Christmas commercial I like this year, but I think that might have been hoping for too much...they seem to just rehash the same ones over and over again.

My take is her look at the camera means: "That's my boy!" because she's proud to love insurance or something...

I have a former coworker / facebook friend who looks just like her, and also hates her own bone structure. I had considered telling her this woman reminds me of her, maybe to make her feel like she wouldn't be cast if they didn't like her look. 

Nah, better not.

Are you sure the gal at the end is supposed to be the mom, or maybe she's the big sister?

She doesn't look anywhere near old enough to be those kids' mother.

My take on her expression at the end is "Haha!!! Wasn't it clever the way we represented a product as dull and boring as homeowners insurance as something a kid would be ecstatic to get for Christmas??" Hyuk hyuk!!!

That commercial was recycled from 2020. Liberty Mutual is lazy to come up with a new ad it seems.

Nah, the Dad is shooting the video and asks the first brat what he got, and Mom asks the second brat what he got.

My thought exactly. These buffoons come up with new annoying ads all year long, then come Xmas time recycle old garbage.

That fact that this is a stale, recycled commercial that sucked when it first aired and sucks even more now just proves Liberty doesn't care about originality anymore and just wants to get their name and that annoying jingle out there as we don't have enough ear pollution in our lives as it is.

I think they're trying to capitalize on the old classic "Nintendo Sixty FOOOOOOOURRRR" type viral videos of kids going apesh*t when they got a Super Nintendo or a Nintendo or (duh) a Nintendo 64.

Unfortunately they do a f**king HORRIBLE job of it and the girl at the end mugging with the fake smile just makes me want to punch her through the TV.
