This Is Getting Ridiculous: 'X-Men: First Class' Insurance Ad Starring Beast & J.K. Simmons

Are you not yet feeling absolutely pulverized by the endless onslaught of “X-Men: First Class” marketing? Has the breathless praise thrown at the film by the early non-review reviews by the target audience for the movie already made you wary? Well, too bad because you’re going to keep hearing about ‘First Class’ until you’re found lying curled in a fetal position begging for mercy.

An absolutely terrible tie-in television advertisement for Farmers Insurance that for some reason has J.K. Simmons in it has surfaced. Surely you don’t need the money that badly J.K. do you? Anyway, there’s Beast shoehorned into a commercial that flails about making a connection between mutants and insurance in a terrible attempt at comedy. Lordy, what next? A Tide commercial with Emma Frost telling us how she keeps her whites so clean?

“X-Men: First Class” opens on June 3rd but the endless marketing has told you that already. Watch the spot below. [SuperHeroHype]
