Progressive will no longer be filming commercials inside FirstEnergy StadiumPhoto: Progressive Insurance
At Home with Baker Mayfield has been a staple of Progressive commercials for years now. However, after being traded to Carolina on Wednesday, Progressive will no longer have the luxury of being able to use footage at FirstEnergy Stadium for sake of continuity. With every drawback comes the opportunity for genius, especially in the marketing department. Listen up Progressive! Listen up Flo, Jamie, and friends! I have your next campaign planned out. I’ll be expecting payment (You guys got Venmo?). Here’s the script, excuse the formatting:
INT. — Bank of America Stadium, day
Baker and his wife, Emily Wilkinson, unpack a few of the props we’ve seen from previous “At Home” commercials (i.e.: coffee machine, perhaps a framed picture of him with Alice Cooper, etc.) when he gets to the nacho cheese dispenser. Emily snatches it away from Baker
Oh, we don’t need that. We have dispensers here, and these ones have actually been to two Super Bowls.
The hassle of moving was so much already, but Progressive made it easy to bundle our home and auto insurance, even during our move. We saved a boatload of money.
Baker, you said you wouldn’t.
What? We had some extra cash, so I just figured…
Alright, but you’re taking me with you.
Oh, no can do. I already told my friends I’d take them.
EXT. — Beach, day
Baker is driving a boat. Sam Darnold and Matt Corral are sitting in the back.
Man, this is so much better than Lake Erie.
Do you think I could drive for a little bit?
When you’re older, kid. Even I had to wait before I got to drive.
You only had to wait two weeks.
Enjoy it. It sucks getting thrust right into the driving role immediately.
CUT TO WIDE SHOT OF BOAT GOING ACROSS SCREEN
Progressive. Bundle home, auto, and boat insurance all in one place.
(Sounding ill) Could you move to calmer waters? I think I’m gonna be sick.
Not in the boat!
Does he have mono again?
And scene! That’s at most a one-minute…
