Geico: A Triangle Solo Is Surprising

Ahh…the triangle. It’s an oft-forgotten and maligned instrument. But this particular triangle player (played by Jonathan Brooks) takes a chance and goes for a surprising solo in his orchestra’s concert. The audience and his fellow musicians are understandably dumbfounded. Geico’s newest spot from their “It’s Not Surprising” campaign has racked up more than 3.7 million views in less than two days, proving that there are some triangle fanatics out there.

    What is the name of the classical song in this commercial?

  2. Has anyone identified all the guitar legends he’s impersonating? I saw Jimi Hendrix, Chuck Berry, Pete Townshend and Angus Young šŸ˜Š

    Brilliant, love it, literally laughed ’til I cried and had to rewind over and over. Now I play it on youtube whenever I need a good laugh. I even think he’s cute…yep, I’m disturbed! Best commercial in a long time, should have saved it for the Super bowl. Bravo to the advertising team and Mr. Johnathon Brooks!!!

    This is a blatant ripoff of the scene in Back to the Future where Marty McFly does the guitar solo.

    Awesome commercial! Yep, I can’t stop laughing at this triangle solo idiot (in a good way) . when Jonathan makes those grunts, it cracks me up, especially when he points at the audience with his triangle stick. Just plain hilarious.
