New holiday ‘Mayhem’ from Allstate

UPDATE 6-5-2012: Allstate is updating its YouTube channel, and this video was not among those that were reposted. I found a clip on another channel, but the quality isn’t as good as the original.


UPDATE 5-31-2012: Allstate is updating its YouTube channel, and some videos are working and some are not. I’m trying to update the links as soon as Allstate reposts them. Thank you for your patience.

Behold!  Twelve days of “Mayhem” from Allstate — a montage of the year’s ads featuring Dean Winters in the role of “Mayhem.”

At the time of this writing, the clip on YouTube, posted just hours ago, had 307 views, 74 likes, 1 dislikes.

It was not posted on Facebook yet as of 8:59 p.m.

Agency: Leo Burnett, the folks who brought us product characters such as the Marlboro Man, Jolly Green Giant, Tony the Tiger, and Toucan Sam.
