One final State Farm nod to #SNL40: The Coneheads reunion

This week, State Farm insurance unveiled its final tribute in partnership with Saturday Night Live‘s 40th anniversary, just in time for tonight’s season finale of SNL.

The Coneheads — Beldar (Dan Aykroyd), Prymaat (Jane Curtin) and daughter Connie (Laraine Newman) — re-enact a currently running State Farm commercial featuring the mythical “Jake from State Farm,” only in outer space. Sort of. You get it.

The Coneheads debuted on the Jan. 15, 1977, episode of SNL, and became a popular recurring sketch during the initial cast’s run, and eventually reunited for a 1993 feature film.

Roll the 30-second spot and the two-minute behind-the-scenes featurette!
