Geico Introduces Smartdogs

Now new from Geico: Smartdogs! These adorable pooches are trained to train humans. And what do they want to train humans to do? To avoid distracted driving, for one. I think we’ll be seeing more from the Smartdogs soon. Though Smartdogs will never be available to the public, Geico still reminds you to turn on do not disturb while driving.

The Geico Gecko Is A Fan Of March Madness Basketball

Even though I write about Geico commercials on here all the time, I tend to overlook the Gecko. Probably because he’s been in Geico ads since 2005, long before I started this blog. Here’s one that we’ll be seeing a lot of in the next few weeks. The Gecko (voiced by Jake Wood) is sitting alongside the play-by-play announcer at his first NCAA Tournament. He’s enjoying it, and even gets too into the action to talk much about Geico. He implores the players to set picks and shoot the 3. But alas, it seems Gecko may have gotten too animated in celebrating, as he possibly pulled a hammy. He needs ice…just one cube!

 

 

Geico’s Basketball-Playing Barbershop Quartet

I probably wouldn’t write about Geico commercials as much if they weren’t so widely aired and if people didn’t always view those posts, but they are and they do, so here’s another. In this one, a barbershop quartet plays basketball. Why? Ehh…why not? They perform their barbershop music while passing…but after a Chappelle’s Show-style “Shoot the J!”, an emphatic block and breakaway dunk result.

 

Geico Hits The Mother Lode Of Soft Serve Ice Cream

I could probably write a blog just based off Geico commercials. Anyway, in this one, a hard-working oil crew just hit the mother lode. Except this mother lode is much tastier and less valuable…it’s soft serve ice cream, of course. A guy comes by with a wheelbarrow of cones too. And when a rainbow geyser comes spraying out of a derrick, they’re really in good shape….because sprinkles!

Geico: A Lobster Relaxes In A Hot Tub With This Newlywed Couple

The lobster seems like he’s in such a good mood…ohhh, there’s a jet. The woman from the newlywed couple seems befuddled that they’re sharing a hot tub with a lobster, but the man is ultimately more pleased that they saved hundreds of dollars on their car insurance with Geico. Our lobster buddy quips that he’s afraid of commitment, because he’s been boiled a lot. Then he ducks underwater when the chef comes looking for him. Some astute YouTube commenters notice that the lobster gets redder as the commercial runs, which is a nice touch. The man in the hot tub is played by Tristen J. Winger, and the woman is Tyra Colar.

Geico: Motorcycle Fantasies And “Here I Go Again” Interrupt This Groom’s Wedding

This guy is cruising along in his motorcycle through a beautiful landscape (it looks like the Big Sur stretch of the California coast). He’s singing along to Whitesnake’s “Here I Go Again” . The motorcyclist looks like he’s having an amazing time on the lonely street of dreams. Cut to reality…and he’s still singing. Only now he’s saying his vows on the altar during his wedding. Whoops. Turns out he does know that his vows were a Whitesnake song. Haha. This one has been quite popular on YouTube, raking up more than 9 million views to date. Ted Jonas plays the Whitesnake-loving groom, and Sarati plays his annoyed bride.

Geico: Duncan The Walrus Is An Excellent Hockey Goalie

Of all of Geico’s ads, this might be one of the best. Duncan is a great hockey goalie, well, because he’s as big as the goal. Watching the coach (James McCauley) throw fish to Duncan and his teammates barking is quite the delight. And “no sleepies” is a fabulous commercial catchphrase. Enjoy!
