David Frankham of Smuggler directed two shorts in the newest phase of American Family Insurance’s “Insure Carefully, Dream Fearlessly” campaign, including this piece titled “School on Wheels.” The advertising features American Family Insurance’s brand ambassadors Derek Jeter, the great, now retired NY Yankees MLB All-Star shortstop, Golden State Warriors NBA All-Star Kevin Durant, and Houston Texans NFL All-Pro J.J. Watt.

The campaign is built around the theme that every dream deserves a champion. Jeter, Durant and Watt pay an unexpected visit and assistance to hardworking Americans whose dreams are to help others by giving back to their communities. School on Wheels offers educational assistance to children living on the streets. In the “School on Wheels” spot/short, Jeter, Durant and Watt surprise the regional director and work with kids on their math, reading and drawing.

The campaign also features “I Know Better” from Grammy- and Oscar-winning musician John Legend, the newest American Family brand ambassador.
