Someone at the ad agency producing State Farm's ad campaign must be a big time fan of Saturday Night Live.
Last year, it was the Bears' "Superfans" (Robert Smigel & George Wendt). On opening night of the NFL season, we saw Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers take abuse from Hans & Franz (Dana Carvey & Kevin Nealon). Now comes this piece of fluff, in which an agent brings a pair of clients into the office, but who's that guy at the corner desk?
The name plate reads "Richard Lamer", aka the "Richmeister" (Rob Schneider), whom we thought would be a more likely candidate to do one of those Ace Hardware spots. Just what we don't need. The creepy guy from the copy center. And I do mean creepy.
All this proves is that Schneider, whose movie career stalled, can't count on being buds with Adam Sandler forever in order to get steady work.
