2011 State Farm commercial

In the 2011 State Farm commercial, when Mater crashes into a pole, the pole crashes into Hans' Pet Boutique's window and causes the pets to flee. Sara Safestreet shows up and honks the State Farm jingle, then almost a dozen State Farm Insurance Pitties show up and clean up the mess Mater made, repair the window and catch all the pets for Hans.

Cars 2

In Cars 2, he is seen sleeping by his flower shop in Tokyo. Mater spots his shop, and asks Holley Shiftwell if she would like some flowers, which she says to just keep moving. After Mater leaves, Finn McMissile uses one of his grappling hooks to knock down a vending machine of flowers and smash it, to trick Hans and two other shopkeepers into thinking that Tyler Gremlin did it and move him away, as to prevent him from capturing Mater.
