If they gave out Emmys for commercials…these actors are 30-second specialists.
That guy is quite a masticator.
What kind of ad budget does this company have? I agree. This one is funny. The dad has a Chevy Chase quality. Subtle. Perfect. And the daughter’s great, too. Good comic acting, which is mostly about timing. Theirs is impeccable.
I hope they have a bottomless ad budget! I have no idea what the spots have to do with insurance, but I know they’re for GEICO, and that’s all they care about. (And I was thinking a lowkey Will Ferrell.)
A lowkey Will Ferrell is a proxymoron
Yes, this is definitely a Gerry-type of spot.
And it also gives me another reason not to eat sushi.
Love the stuff.
Ger!!! I thought the same thing when I saw this ad. Love his ‘chewing’. …
Gerry, they actually do give out Emmy’s for commercials. The Eminem Chrysler commercial won this year.
I didn’t know that. I thought the Clios were their Emmys. Thanks.
Thanks for posting this – happened to catch the end of it yesterday, saw just enough to know I wanted to see it again from the beginning.
I’m curious to see if this commercial will lose its charm over time, or continue to amuse, as did – in my opinion – AllState’s “Mayhem” commercials.
GEICO’s pretty good at getting new commercials on before you want to throw a shoe at one you’ve seen too many times.
That was sorta sick but did make me LOL. So glad that you are back with your blogs. I don’t Facebook, twitter or tweet…”too old-fashioned” I guess, (I still use my cell phone to make calls) but look forward to reading your blogs.
Thank you RM! Much appreciated.
