Allstate Insurance Refuses to Remove Offensive Gravel Truck Ad

October 26, 2017 at 10:53 AM

Allstate Insurance is currently running a “Mayhem” ad campaign.  Popular in the U.S., the ads are now running in Canada.  One of the radio ads disappointingly singles out Gravel Trucks as the cause of “Mayhem”.  Click here to listen to the ad.

OSSGA wrote to Allstate to ask them to remove the ad from the rotation, they have declined to do so.  Given their response, the OSSGA Board has decided to inform the membership of the ads as well as the correspondence back and forth, and allow member companies to make their own decision as to how they wish to respond and/or whether they wish to continue doing business with Allstate.
