SNL characters land in State Farm ad
Dan Aykroyd and Jane Curtain have taken their "coneheads" out of the closet for a reunion of the Saturday Night Live skit in an ad for State Farm by DDB Chicago.
The skit, which debuted in 1977, features an unusual family with, ahem, unusually large heads. The extraterrestrial family has an awkward relationship with most humans.
One human willing to deal with their antics is Jake, a character from State Farm ads. The agent listens to E.T. patriarch Beldar on the phone. Beldar's wife Prymaat enters and suspects something is amiss.
DDB Chicago will debut a follow-up TV spot in June with the out of this world family.
