Drake continues to be one of the biggest stars in the world and Sunday night during the Super Bowl was another example of that. He appeared in a cameo for a State Farm commercial, which also included NFL stars, Patrick Mahomes, and Aaron Rodgers.
The topic was about stand-ins and how none of theirs looked like them. Jake from State Farm said he didn’t have one and that’s when Drake stepped into the scene. Here, he proceeded to say “That’s right, Drake from State Farm.”
Drake Tries To Use State Farm Slogan In The Commercial
When Drake appeared, he tried to say State Farm’s iconic “Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there” line. In this ad though, Jake from State Farm tried to explain to Drake that stand-ins don’t have lines. This occurred as the two were trying to say this slogan at the same time.
Many found this ad to be very entertaining as Drake remains one of the most popular artists in the world. State Farm bringing him on board for this ad was another symbol of his iconic status for sure.
