MJZ's Hoffman/Metoyer Directs "Wrong/Right" For State Farm, DDB Chicago
This State Farm spot from DDB Chicago starts with footage of disastrous situations and a voiceover (by Lorenzo Persons) asking the question, “What if one day we woke up and everything just stopped going wrong?” As a dark tornado transitions to a peaceful sky, an accident is averted, and a blazing fire is extinguished, the voiceover continues, “No more accidents, no more fires, no more emergencies.” Suddenly everything that can go wrong, goes right. The spot goes on to emphasize how in a world where things stop going wrong, State Farm will still be here to help with college, a first car and new beginnings.
Hoffman/Metoyer of MJZ directed this commercial, which is titled “Wrong/Right.”
