Allstate Guy’s Beard Meeting Approval

I posted a couple weeks ago about Dennis Haysbert, The Allstate Guy, appearing with a beard and how great I think that is.  I’ve been scouring the web looking for a clip from the commercial, but have yet to find one.  I did, however find a recent photo of him on the Raleigh Star’s site of his appearance at the Jimmy V Golf Classic, held in Raleigh, NC.

Allstate Beard

That, my friends, is a sweet gray beard.

And I’m not the only one digging it.  I did a quick Twitter search for “Allstate beard” and here are some comments that popped up.

bklynmuzz: wait since when has dennis haysbert been sporting a beard? i might just switch to allstate now.
KikiLu2: The Allstate guy has a beard now? I like. :)
NotQuiteBella: Ooh. I’m loving the Allstate guy’s sweet beard.
kriisco: The Allstate man grew a beard. It’s a good look.

Of course, there were the naysayers as well, but that’s just added evidence that this site and all the other sites out there promoting the beard in a positive light need to work harder. I’m obviously not going to promote their negative bearditudes here.

Several people were disoriented by the Allstate Beard…

ShiningRhino: When did the guy from the allstate commercials grow a beard?!?!
ShileeM: Why did the AllState guy grow a beard?
guitar_freak78: The allstate commercail guy grew a beard!?

However, the most common Twitter reaction to the Allstate Beard was not positive or negative… but simply to shout from the rafters about it.  Consider these:

DrCholes: The allstate insuarance guy grew a beard!!!!!!!
Pazzler: The allstate guy got a beard!
Catiejay: The Allstate man has a beard!! O my!!
happyhalli: the allstate guy grew a beard!
shelbylynn29: OMG THE ALLSTATE GUY HAS A BEARD NOW! ….that comment didnt really merit CAPS…oops

Love it or not, the Allstate guy’s beard is making waves.  Let’s hope he still has it in the next commercial, and the next, and the next…

Lastly, I’ll leave you with the most hilarious tweet about the Allstate Guy’s beard that I ran across.

D_Beautifulone: Lol, the allstate dude has a beard now. He looks like he should be in a just for men commerical.
