Christmas inferno: State Farm sets fire to stuff (Video)

By Melissa Bell

To warn people about how quickly a holiday can turn into a horrific fire, State Farm Insurance offers up a heartening holiday tale wherein a Christmas tree becomes engulfed in flames. And it turns out this video is only the latest in State Farm's series of Setting Stuff on Fire. Obviously, the videos serve to advertise the great need for insurance, but seriously, did they hire a pyromaniac on the advertising staff or what?

This is of the "The Fly" school of advertising. You know, "Be afraid. Be very afraid."
