Wrath of the Turkey…

 In another Farmers Insurance commercial, we are shown the revenge of the “proud bird with the golden tail,” the long-suffering and oft disrespected turkey.  A “Meaty’s Butcher Shop” truck manned by a single hapless guy is making its way down the road when a turkey appears in its path, causing the driver to veer off the road and into a tree. The middle-aged gent then regards his passenger seat, where he be holds…a turkey!  The driver screams at the turkey, who gobbles loudly at him…

…payback, they say, is hell.  We then cut to an exterior shot of the disabled truck, with a mob of turkeys descending on it.  There is strength in numbers, and the delivery truck rocks from side to side as the turkeys administer their own brand of justice to one of their oppressors.  It’s reminiscent of a scene in the first Jurassic Park  movie where a throng of diminutive dinosaurs overwhelm and dispense with an especially obnoxious character in his vehicle.

We then cut to a scene with the unflappable J.K. Simmons escorting a client through their extensive Hall of Claims, where we gaze with them upon a much-mangled apron, last worn by the ill-fated delivery driver.  Farmers Insurance has seen just about everything, we are reminded, so they can insure against anything, including “Turkey Jerks…”

    Actually, that happened in the book. In the movie, ex-Newman (from
    JERRY SEINFELD) was killed by a half-grown Dilophosaurus. It wasn’t until THE LOST WORLD: JP that Spielberg used the CGI chicken-dinos.(technically known as “compsognathii”).

      I knew that I had remembered that scene from some point in the series, but confess it’s been many moons since I read the book.

        Personally, though, I still think this would’ve made a better Chick-Fil-A commercial. Imagine a skydiving turkey bearing a placard that reads: “EAT MORE CHICKEN FOR THANKSGIVING & XMAS.”

        😉

    P.S.—Sorry for the duplicate post. Some kind of uploading glitch.

      2nd P.S.—I still think this would’ve been funnier as a Chick-Fil-A commercial. Picture a skydiving turkey bearing a placard that reads: “EAT MORE CHICKEN FOR THANKSGIVING & XMAS.”
