Since we began posting the latest Esurance commercials, they’ve generated quite a bit of buzz, plus a question or two. And since we don’t want to leave anyone in the dark, we thought we’d take a minute to answer the questions we’re hearing most.

Q: What’s the song from the Esurance commercials?

A: The commercials (except Mix Tape) feature the Grammy Award–winning song “Jam Man,” from Country Music Hall of Fame guitarist Chet Atkins. Mix Tape features the 80’s classic “Situation” by Yaz.

Q: Who is the voice in the Esurance commercials?

A: This is the most frequently asked question (by a long shot!). If that Esurance commercial voice sounds familiar to you — almost like someone you know from your office — that’s because it’s John Krasinski of The Office. Though most famous for his role on the hit show, he’s currently starring in Promised Land, which he co-wrote with Matt Damon.

Q: Are the Facebook comments featured in the commercial real?

A: In the Trust commercial, we mention that Esurance customers are saying stuff like “awesome” and “rockin’.” And they are! We took the quotes in the commercial directly from happy customers. So, thanks, happy customers.

Q: Is that the famous talking dog from YouTube?

A: Yes. Yes it is. The talking dog who makes a cameo in the Trust commercial rose to fame in “Ultimate Dog Tease” on YouTube.
