State Farm Picks TikTok Over TV in Super Bowl Ad Shuffle

The insurance provider's video challenge targets the next generation of customers

State Farm aired its first-ever Super Bowl ad in 2021. This year, it would rather spend game day hanging out with you online.

Instead of splurging on guest appearances by Drake and Paul Rudd as it did a year ago, the insurance provider is forgoing a traditional Super Bowl ad in favor of the #TeamStateFarm TikTok challenge. Launching today, the campaign uses the Jake From State Farm character as a talent scout evaluating video submissions on the platform.
