Dan Aykroyd and Jane Curtin Reprise Famous Roles as Couple in the "Jake" Spot
May 12, 2015
SNL alumni Dan Aykroyd and Jane Curtin's reprise their roles as the lovable but thick Coneheads in this hilarious new ad for State Farm, created out of DDB Chicago.
In the new ad, the aliens Beldar and Prymaat step into the roles of the couple in the brand's funny "State of Unrest" ad featuring a husband talking in the middle of the night to someone on the phone. Although to his wife it seems as if he's chatting with a mysterious lover, he's merely talking to Jake from State Farm. Here, however, the Coneheads replay the scenario with the goofy, inquisitive E.T.-speak they've come to be known for -- and Beldar says he's conversing with "Jake from Planet State Farm."
See a behind the scenes video on Youtube, where Mr. Ackroyd and Ms. Curtain pull more Conehead antics and also look really funny speaking as non-aliens while wearing their costumes. The brand will debut another Conehead-themed ad in June.
