Turns out, he was actually having an affair with that guy, as his wife suspected.

@stanleybmanly Yeah, that’s true. Apparently every State Farm male agent is named Jake.

So many commercials now are “kinder and gentler,” I think to go with these trying times we’re in.

I kind of like it.

The original Jake was a real agent. When the advertising company wanted to expand the role, they got an actual actor.

The rumors that the original Jake was murdered are false.

State Farm claimed that Jake was to be an ongoing promotion with new Jakes being brought forth ever so often. After the original Jake was declared dead by internet folklore, I guess they decided that it was time. It seems like I remember some form of uproar over the original commercial with customer being accused by his wife of having an affair with Jake. I don’t remember the exact problem. It seems that it was so far off base that I didn’t pay close attention. I hadn’t seen the new Jake yet, so I headed to youtube. Some people seem outraged that they changed him, others didn’t care. Personally, I don’t care. State farm is probably trying to keep their commercials fresh & switching up the spokesperson usually does the trick.

Jake eloped with the GEICO gecko.

So we would be talking about State Farm Insurance.
