- Dean Winters – Mr. Mayhem
Dean Winters (also known as Mayhem) has become wildly popular since his first Allstate commercial aired earlier this year.Â Â How could he not?Â The witty and sometimes painful series of commercials has created a huge buzz.Â Â Dean Winters portrays â€œMayhemâ€, and you never know in what form he will come or what kind of damage he will do.Â Your only guarantee is that it is going to be funny.
Background on Dean Winters
Dean Winters has been acting for quite a while.Â He is best known for the characters he played in the shows â€œOzâ€ (1997-2003) as Ryan O’Reily,Â â€œ30 Rockâ€ as Dennis Duffy, and the reoccurring former love of Sarah Connor in â€œTerminator:Â The Sarah Connor Chroniclesâ€.
On June 20, 2010, Winters was introduced to us as “Mayhem.”
Amazingly, a year before Dean suffered an aggressive bacterial infection that stopped his heart for 2Â½ minutes. Â He was revived and treated for the infection, but developed gangrene.Â Dean was forced to have two toes and half a thumb amputated. Â He has had several surgeries and procedures since to repair the damage.
Fast forward to the first teaser where Puppy Mayhem warned us that more mayhem was on the way -Â he wasn’t kidding.Â Since then we have been treated to a barrage of hilarious commercials.Â Here are 10 of the best.
