Jake From State Farm

So, in case you're not on Facebook, I thought I'd entertain you today with this photo of Oliver dressed for Halloween as Jake from State Farm Insurance Company.  I personally had no idea who Jake actually was until the boys showed me the commercial, but apparently, this costume idea and photo was tweeted by someone at Oliver's school (he takes a Science class at a small independent school) and Jake himself answered the tweet. Or re-tweeted. Or twittered. I evidently have a Twitter account, but I have no idea how to use it.

And, yes, the irony of having a child of mine masquerade as an insurance salesman is not lost on me. It's a beautiful thing.


  1. That picture literally made me laugh out loud. All by myself. Just me and Jake and for one second, the world was a merry and lovely place.

  2. Well, Halloween asks that we dress as ghouls and monsters to scare away evil spirits so....

    and can i just say, i love that kid!

  3. I laughed out loud too. Jake...I mean Oliver is such a great kid!

  4. He's adorable. Very cool about the tweet.

  5. This makes me stupidly happy. I will vote for Oliver for president when his time comes.

  6. Best costume of the year! We love Jake from State Farm in this house.

  7. I'm not sure who or what Jake is, but I'll take your word for it that he's a cultural force -- and I'm sure Oliver makes a great Jake!

  8. Great costume - thanks for sharing - I love how creative our kids get - I never would have thought of that.

  9. too funny! he's wearing the "kakkies" haha, who woulda thunk?
    "Hello JAKE FROM STATE FARM. what are you wearing!?!"
    "um, kakkies?"
    "she sounds hideous"
    "well, she's a he"
    it's a new classic i guess. i gotta smile at this one.
    I'm actually gonna get dressed up in regular fancy going-out clothes. like i was goin out to hit all the hot spots, dressed to the T. that, for me lately, it's the same as a costume:)

  10. I don't know about Jake, but Oliver is awesome. I love me some good old irony. ;)
