Travelers Insurance Drifters
Travelers Insurance have launched “Drifters”, a television commercial featuring the music of folk singer Langhorne Slim (Sean Scolnick). The company’s iconic red umbrellas drift through the countryside and cityscapes before coming together to protect the things that people care about most.
Langhorne Slim’s song, “Worries”, provides the musical backing for a cinematographical celebration of everyday concerns, with red umbrellas in the sky floating wherever people are, landing on representations of auto, home and business, protecting “the things you care about”.
If you got worries, then you’re like me.
Don’t worry now, I won’t hurt you.
And, if you got worries, then you’re like me.
Don’t worry now, I won’t desert you.
If you get a chance, you put your dancing shoes on.
The country’s calling, and thats where I’m going.
Don’t know if you’re in my way, but, I’ll take you along.
I’ll take you along.
Maybe blue eyes are more of my style,
I don’t know, but I’m willing to try.
And, maybe I’m dumb for making you smile,
I don’t know, but I will in a while.
We passed a graveyard and held our breath,
We better kiss if we’re getting closer to death.
I don’t wanna miss ya,
I know it’s all in our heads,
She says “It’s all in our heads.”
