Slightly Sick. Very Funny.

If they gave out Emmys for commercials…these actors are 30-second specialists.

    That guy is quite a masticator.

  2. 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.)

  3. 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.

    Gerry, they actually do give out Emmy’s for commercials. The Eminem Chrysler commercial won this year.

    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.

    Gerry,
    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.
