Need help remembering insurance TV commercial!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I am trying to remember the Insurance Co. that did the corny commercial in the 80s and 90s in which an older couple gets a call from their son and the wife exclaims "It's Patrick! He got Life Insurance!"

Does anyone remember the ins. company. Also does anyone have any ideas (websites, etc.) about where I could track down this commercial on the web?

I know. I have an ongoing joke with someone at work about it and I want to send him a link to say a Youtube clip of it, or something of that manner.

Here's some of my thoughts: Allstate, Liberty Mutual, State farm, Prudential.... Or maybe something more obscure.

Now I'm not so sure. Norwich Union seems to be Birtish. I'll keep trying.

I remember that commercial, but I can't remember the insurance company.

For some reason "Freedom 55" rings a bell. But I can't remember the company that had it... London Life maybe?

Insurance companies don't tend to go out of business. Here is a list of Canadian insurance companies.

The only other one that I can think that it might be is "Sun Life", but I found out that London Life is the one with "Freedom 55" which is what is really ringing a bell for me.

do you think it is a Canadian commercial? Maybe that's why I'm having so much trouble finding it!

I did some more searching.

It is "Norwich Union" which merged with AIG Assurance.

Here is more information on it including talk about the "It's Patrick!" commercials, towards the bottom.

Thanks so much you guys. Now I know the ins. company. But, you wouldn't believe how hard it is to find this commercial on YouTube, etc. i guess because it's Canadian, it's harder to find.

I actually found this thread a few times in my web searchs!
