In the :30 "Monuments," icons such as the leaning tower of Pisa, Venus de Milo, the Liberty Bell, and a Vincent van Gogh self-portrait are shown as they currently appear. Each item is then "restored" (i.e., the tower is straightened, Venus has arms, no crack in the Liberty Bell, and Vincent has two ears.) The spot ends with the tag, "Farmers Insurance. Gets you back where you belong."
Spot broke in July.
