EDMESTON, N.Y., Jan. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- To spread the message on receiving the J.D. Power Award for #1 in Customer Satisfaction Among Auto Insurers in New York 2 years in a row, NYCM Insurance recently launched a series of live-action television commercials titled "Thank you, New York." The series is named after the campaign's tagline and features three separate 30-second spots.

The commercials were produced by Annie Delano in conjunction with NYCM Insurance's advertising agency, Overit Media and directed by Overit's own, Solomon Nero. In addition, Overit's Richard Skiermont acted as Creative Director.

All of the spots feature a representative of NYCM Insurance (New York-based actor, Nico Piccardo) appearing in peoples' daily lives to hand-deliver a J.D. Power trophy, sharing the win with them as a pleasant surprise. A handful of different scenarios are featured throughout the series including: a woman ordering a meal at a drive-through restaurant, a librarian shelving books and a couple taking a leisurely jog through the suburbs.

The commercials communicate a clear message ("This is for you!"), reiterating that while NYCM Insurance may be the one receiving the physical J.D. Power award, the honor of the award is a win for everyone in the NYCM Insurance ecosystem.

"When we found out that we had earned the J.D. Power award for the second year in a row, we knew we had to do something special to celebrate the accomplishment and share the news with the people who made the award possible," said NYCM Insurance Vice President of Brand Management, Robert Snyder.

"We're really proud of the message this series conveys, and that's why it's the largest campaign we've ever pursued at NYCM Insurance. We believe it's a story worth telling."

The series was shot over the course of two days at various locations in Albany, NY. To watch the spots, click here.
