Directed by Martin Granger of Moxie Pictures for Publicis Seattle--with VFX from The Mill NY--this Aflac spot for the Super Bowl opens on a man on the operating table as a doctor prepares to perform surgery on him. The patient is startled when the surgeon tells him that she plans on “going in and removing his ‘67 Corvette.”

The man counters by saying that he’s there only for a simple gall bladder procedure. But the doctor reminds him that without Aflac insurance, he still has to pay for his living expenses such as rent, etc., while he's recuperating and out of work. His unexpected surgery might mean he will have to sell his beloved car.

The lesson to this story--while your health can change, the life you love doesn’t have to if you have Aflac coverage.
