Newsflash! The other insurance companies have been doing this for decades!

Oh!  Did they rent the emu from Progressive?



So much f*cking stupidity at one time!

There are 3 of these new commercials according to iSpot. They have disabled the videos. I found this one on YouTube.

^^^YES! I saw that about the idiot raising possibly the most dangerous bird on earth - just a little more dangerous than an emu. 
Makes one wonder what Liberty was thinking when they put out this series of commercials.

^^^A VERY BAD example since some kid is going to fall in love with emus because of this commercial, then go try and touch one. He will probably get killed.

I think the ASPCA, WWF and other animal advocates will black flag this one.

The Emu is eating something in the desk drawer...This is about car insurance, right?
Then has a spastic case of projectile vomit!

Liberty Mutual ... These adholes are very rapidly becoming one of my top hated advertisers. You know what, Liberty? Come here... sit down ... now you listen to me. Stop it. OK? Stop it. Cut the crap, put down the hashpipe, and quit putting stupid-ass tripe like this on my television. It's companies like YOU, that have made me have to watch sporting events with the sound off, and to constantly record everything else, just to fast-forward through garbage like this. I can't watch live broadcasts anymore. I just can't. Stop. All right? STOP IT!

THE F__K DOES AN EMU HAVE TO DO WITH CAR INSURANCE?!!!
Liberty Liberty Liberty my a$$! OK?! Will never use them as long as I live, thanks to their horrible ads and the people who greenlighted them. Who thought 'liberty, liberty, liberty...liberty' was a good jingle? A 5th grader? Send them off to hard labor in Siberia...please!

I don't like these emu commercials because they're cashing in on an idea I had first.

In 2015 I posted a series of stories about a man and his companion ostrich at www.smashwords.com. In 2016 I took the stories down and published them as a book on Amazon. The book is called INCIDENTAL CONTACT - THE WEIRD MENACE ADVENTURES OF O'RYAN AND HIS OSTRICH. It's available for anyone to see. Three years later Liberty Mutual starts running their commercials about a man and an emu. 

I've contacted them several times about this but they don't reply. I don't understand the reason they're ignoring since I'm not asking anything of them other than a simple polite acknowledgement that I had the idea before they did.

I can see your concern, but in a way I would also have to brush it aside as that would be like the writers of the TV series 'Lassie'  going after the writer of the song 'Me and You and a Dog named Boo'...and I bet that is what's happening to you (with all due respect, I'm not trying to make light of your situation).

Sorry, PaWolf, but your Lassie –Boo analogy doesn't hold water. In the song, Boo is just a sideline character, mentioned only in the chorus, and plays no role in the verses. He could easily be left out and no one would notice. My stories, and later book, are about a quirky human male actively engaging in scenarios with a large flightless bird—which is exactly what the Liberty Mutual commercials are presenting. And as I said, I'm not demanding anything of them. I'm not threatening legal action or seeking compensation. All I'm asking is that they acknowledge the existence of my book coming before their ad campaign.

When Mister Ed first appeared, the creators of the show had no problem with admitting, off-air, that Francis the Talking Mule preceded them. So what harm could there be in Liberty Mutual doing the same thing? How could it hurt them? They even went so far as to delete my post when I commented on their Facebook page. That, it seems to me, is rather shoddy behavior for a company that advertises itself as caring for others.

Why do they pronounce it e-moo instead of e-mew? Just to get it to rhyme? Or are they completely unaware how it's pronounced?

What is the point of a forum if you're not allowed to participate in it? My last two posts are still pending approval. Why? I haven't said any thing wrong in them other than to challenge PaWolf's comment. Is PaWolf an administrator and he cannot tolerate being corrected? This is bull****!
