Why Toys and Heaters Can Never Be Friends

Farmers Insurance Teaches You Insurance Tips Through 15-Second Videos

Editor's Pick

Farmers Insurance and RPA present, "The Smart Hub," a series of online films that feature little nuggets of insurance wisdom, told via humor. Directed by Tony Liu and PJ Richardson, the spots each offer up some advice for keeping yourself and your home safe. In "Space Heater Safety," a sage toy reminds his stuffed friends what happened the last time they made friends with a space heater, while Dribbles Johnson educates you on dripping faucets in "Frozen Pipes,", and a lady's spirit animal advises her on anger management in "Road Rage."

The campaign is part of "15 Seconds of Smart," a microsite that will live at, and feature videos in different formats that give you insurance related tips. The brand has also been sending out tips via Vine, a tactic we saw previously done by home improvement retailer Lowe's.
