"This Is Us" Integration Begins January 15
The second year of the State Farm multi-platform, custom-content integration with “This Is Us” kicks off January 15, 2019. The content highlights the special relationship between State Farm agents and their customers through real-life, non-claim moments. Each of the three custom pieces is inspired by stories from the real State Farm agents featured in the segments. They will air during the broadcast of three different episodes of “This Is Us”. Complementary content will also be available through NBC.com, Buzzfeed and via social media (Instagram/Twitter/Facebook).
In a time when it’s more important than ever for brands to reach audiences during contextually relevant scenes, the spots are rooted in the sentimental tone of the show.
“We are so proud to partner with NBCU again on this truly powerful program,” said Ed Gold, Advertising Director, State Farm. “The story architecture of This is Us allows us to demonstrate how our State Farm agents are there to help - even above and beyond their customer’s insurance and financial services needs.”
