Texas AG demands 'improper' Travelers Insurance TV ad be taken off air

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has ordered Traveler's Insurance to stop airing what it considers to be a deceptive ad or face legal action.

The AG says the ad is misleading because it gives viewers the impression they should purchase additional car insurance or risk losing their home because they didn't carry adequate automobile liability insurance.

The ad, "Drive Your House," features a man driving his home through the desert when he's distracted trying to answer his home phone. The man loses control of his car, sending him, the vehicle and the contents of his home – including his cat and prized souvenir baseball – flying through the air.

A man is then heard saying, "Without the right auto insurance, a crash might impact more than your car. Make sure you're properly covered, so when you're driving your car, you're not risking your house. Travelers, take the scary out of life."
