“At Home With Baker Mayfield” Is Back With New Episodes In 2021
This will be the third season Baker Mayfield films commercials for Progressive Insurance.
The humorous series of ads centers around Baker and Emily Mayfield dealing with typical homeowner issues in FirstEnergy Stadium.
In the press release announcing the Mayfields’ partnership with Progressive in 2019, Mayfield said:
“I was drawn to Progressive because it’s a high-energy, winning team. They thrive on accomplishing what’s never been done before and what others say can’t be done. My life story and process have been different from others, so I felt right at home with Progressive because their journey has been a little different, as well. Emily and I both feel like it’s okay to be unique, prove doubters wrong, and be proud of it. We think it’ll be fun for people to tune in throughout the season to see how the whole story unfolds.”
Ironically, Mayfield had to go through a “combine” process with Progressive’s head of marketing, Jeff Charney, before landing the deal.
This involved Mayfield being asked rapid fire questions like “How much money is in your pocket? Where did you meet your wife? What was your first kiss?”
In the end, Charney said:
“We were trying to test him to see if he could be improvisational. We wanted to make sure he fit our brand and had the right improv skills and would be himself…But you could see the guy was a natural at it. We said, ‘We have something very special with this guy.’ … We went with the guy we really believed in.”
