Is it just me, or have all of the ads from insurance mega-carrier GEICO Corp finally run their course?
The cute little gecko was a nice twist to get the company's name out there initially. Then came the cavemen and their sophistication and being offended by comments made by a company spokesman. Clever.
However, GEICO's most recent ads featuring our little salamander wannabe have really begun to get stale. Who really cares what a team of geckos (or is it geck-oes?) can do to push insurance? And what is this ridiculousness when the gecko talks about "pie and chips"? Who cares? And what the h-e-double hockey sticks is he talking about? And that pretentious British accent is one of those that make you want to beat the next Brit you see on the street half to death with their pub's pint glass.
Perhaps GEICO has gotten to the point where they don't need any new business and that just putting their name out there, no matter how annoying the ad may be is good enough. I believe if they aren't careful, they may start LOSING business. I for one will never purchase through them.
There aren't enough free pie and chips in this world to bring me to them!
