12. "Anyone walking through an El Paso-Gridley High School hallway on Saturday might have thought they had accidentally stepped into a scene from the popular television show Glee," the Bloomington Pantagraph reported last month.

"A dozen juniors and seniors filled a hallway Saturday with song and dance as State Farm Insurance Cos. film crews captured their moves for a 30-second public safety commercial aimed at encouraging teens behind the wheel to slow down.

"The students began working with State Farm last month to create the 30-second commercial, Speed: The Musical, set to air in Iowa this spring. Last month, the students recorded the song that will be aired in the video."

13. Letter to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel:

State Farm's "I'll be there" commercials are an insult to Floridians, as the company is abandoning all homeowners policies in a year or two. I suggest they use another of Michael Jackson's hits, Beat It, for future Florida TV market spots.

14. "State Farm" by Ben Folds.
