DisapproveGeico really has taken 'over-advertise' to an all-new level with their current run of overly silly and intelligence-insulting commercials with the china cabinet, Virginisee, and then this new one...

I'm so sick of Geico and the relentless bullsh*t!
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

Huh! That's odd I could've sworn "Closer Look" would become a series. I guess I was wrong!

Breath-taking.  Literally.
 
I am wondering how many Japanese customers this commercial will alienate?
What's next?  We gonna hire a young Native American Indian girl to shuck corn?

Not many, because they'll be laughing their asses off at how anorexic that "sumo wrestler" is...  LOL

I actually like that one. And, I hate Geico like Apple and that's bad. BTW, I've played Sumo Wrestlers on TV and I may get a crack at it. Better than those retard cavemen or that British Cockney Lizard/Gecco amphibian.

^ I noticed that as well, but couldn't tell if it was intentional - a good sign (generally!).  Tongue
 
It occurs to me that Geico should mash-up this Sumo campaign with the Tena Twist girl.
Ack!!

I'm shall we say considered a bit zaftig. My ex brother in law who looks like the two legged version of "Bullseye" the Target doggy or Spuds McKenzie always told me I looked like a Sumo wrestler. Some others look at me when Sumo Wrestlers on TV. And no thank you to Sumo Wrestler Crack checking. I like my scantily clad hotties of all races. Like that hottie Asian chick showing plenty of toned leg on that otherwise boring Chevy Cruze commercial.

I kinda like that one too.

At least it's not obnoxious or full of obnoxious people like a lot of commercials are these days.

This is the least irritating commercial out there, and that saying a lot!

I find it different and somewhat amusing. Unlike most GEICO ads which are stupid and annoying.

GEICO ads tend to be either kinda stupid or kinda funny.
