In addition to the 30-second TV commercial, the campaign includes a special, long format commercial hosted on the Esurance Facebook page. Other components include digital out-of-home, print, and streaming radio that will also run nationally. To view the TV commercial, go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5c8qTVq9ZI
