State Farm is a company that provides property and casualty insurance that fits into any budget. Though what’s more fun to watch are their commercials that uniquely display their agendas. And NFL players steal the show by starring in their commercials.

This time it was Rodgers and his guitar. The ad begins with Rodgers asking Jake if he was giving the “Rodgers Rate” to “regular folks.” To which Jake’s reply was, “State Farm has rates that fit anyone’s budget.”

Although this time Aaron Rodgers and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback, Patrick Mahomes both had their independent State Farm commercials to act on. Unlike the one, we saw seven months earlier where the commercial had both the quarterbacks, along with Paul Rudd and even Drake.

However, this time the individual performances by Rodgers and Mahomes showcased them performing based on their own likes. Rodgers rocking a guitar which he loves to play, and the geeky side of Mahomes who likes to wear sneakers.

Although Aaron Rodgers felt excited to see himself as a budding musician on screen after the commercial dropped. Yet he feels even more excited for the new NFL 2021 season to start. As this season is going to be his last dance with the Green Bay Packers, and so he wants to make it count.
