In association with
Travelers 'delivery' by Fallon Minneapolis

This US-only TV commercial marks the first brand spot for insurance company Travelers to feature its umbrella logo since the company was reacquired from Citigroup.
The symbolic red umbrella logo had previously represented Travelers and insurance protection for decades.
The ad will run throughout the summer around sports and business programming. It shows a dapper man delivering a 35-foot umbrella to its new owner in the city.
The man uses the umbrella to shelter a group of children and others, before finally arriving at his destination where he proudly sits atop a building, from where he discovers the city is filled with red umbrellas.
The spot is designed to communicate the idea that when you need the umbrella, it will be there.

All aboard Marissa Mayer’s Yahoo acquisition train
Marissa Mayer certainly knew what was coming when Yahoo announced its $1.1bn (£723m / 857m euros) purchase of blogging platform Tumblr earlier this week. Rather than waiting for the critics to pounce, she issued a rather succinct, clear and highly quotable message proactively: “we promise not to screw it up”.
