Thank you for including this load of sh*t to the forum! The way that the different voices interrupt and "talk over" each other is annoying to the nth degree.
This ad is just another for me to ignore Geico, instead of investing into it with a policy.

Awful and annoying. I mute it every time. One of the Gecko's worst commercials - up there with the 'flat tireeeee!' and 'Virginisee'.

GEICO hasn't been funny since the Happy Hipster Douchebag Duo and that was like 2013...5 years ago!

I miss simple ads like this. Not a single word is spoken yet it still manages to make me laugh.

Working for a company that does quite a bit of conference calling, I can tell you that this happens a lot. People are constantly talking over each other & stopping not to interrupt, only to end up talking over each other anyway. I imagine this is supposed to be a parody of that.

What's far more vexing to me is why we're supposed to believe a freaking gecko is running a meeting for a major insurance company. And why none of the humans in the commercial seem to find it odd that this is happening.

I don't see what's odd about it. ?
 
It's common knowledge the pig was sent to prison for insider trading in pork belly futures.
The camel had way too many fleas, hogged the water cooler, and couldn't fit in the boardroom anyway,
and the caveman was well... just too stupid to conduct the meeting on his own!  Tongue

LOL

The marketing management must encourage the use of mind altering substances...how else could they come up with stupid sh!t like this?  God, I hate them!

This commercial is actually uncomfortable to watch.  I've been in many conference calls like this, on both ends of the line.  It is way too realistic and I HATE when everyone talks over one another.  This one can't die soon enough for my liking.

The perfect commercial match! Gayfair meets IKEA and Geico.

I did some renting, are young people really smart enough, do they have the funds, to buy renters insurance?
