Geico: Raccoons Raid The Garbage, But Aren’t Impressed With The Taste

Honestly, I could probably write a blog just about funny Geico ads. In the latest of the “It’s What You Do” campaign, we see raccoons being raccoons and scavenging through garbage. The one raccoon eats something really awful, and wants his friends and/or family to try it. Because when you taste something bad, you want someone else to try it…it’s what you do. But as AdFreak notes, the companion videos might be even better. “Raccookin'” shows one of the raccoons whipping together a recipe. Except that they’re fake recipes with names like “pepperoni garbage bread” made with stuff out of the trash. His narration is low-key great.

 

Geico: Sleeping Beauty Wasn’t Sleeping After All

Turns out that she’s just pretending to be asleep so she can be left alone and watch trashy TV. Poor Prince Charming. I’m a big fan of Geico’s “It’s What You Do” campaign, but I find this one to just be meh. (Not so) Sleeping Beauty is played by Annika Noelle, and Prince Charming is James Trevena-Brown.

Geico Has Ice-T At A Lemonade Stand

These kids are selling lemonade in Geico’s new “It’s Not Surprising” ad, but all the adults think they have iced tea. Of course, we find out that they’re right in a way, as Ice-T is chillin behind them. Hah! There’s some pretty women in this commercial…Amy Rutberg plays the blonde and Anne Troup is the brunette. The man with the dog is played by David Levin.

This Geico Ad Has Marco Polo In A Pool

In Geico’s new “It’s Not Surprising” campaign, we see a group of kids playing Marco Polo in an above-ground pool. Also in the pool is Marco Polo, fully dressed in period clothing and confusedly wondering in Italian why these whippersnappers are calling his name. Alas, the children are too busy with their game to notice (or care) that a 13th century Venetian explorer and his llama are right there. Marco Polo is played by Michael Mazzeo.

Geico: If You’re A Parrot, You Repeat Things

Parrots are probably best known for their ability to imitate human speech. They of course don’t understand what they’re saying, but if you utter an unfortunate statement, you might be hearing it for a while. I remember parrots repeating a murder confession being used as a cliche in TV shows I saw as a kid, but apparently similar things have happened. So needless to say, you should watch your mouth around a parrot. That’s a lesson this pirate learns all too well in Geico’s newest “It’s What You Do” spot.

Geico Shows A Marriage Proposal Interrupted By A Butt Dial

Butt dials…they happen occasionally. It seems like they’re much rarer now that most people have smartphones as opposed to phones with keys, but they still occur. Now what would be the worst situation for a butt dial to interfere? A marriage proposal would be high on the list, as happens in the newest of Geico’s “It’s What You Do” campaign, created by The Martin Agency. And as we see, not only does Todd interrupt a proposal with his butt dial, but he also has his own seemingly ill-advised proposal up his sleeve. At a baseball game, of course. Nicholas Daly Clark plays Sarah’s proposing beau, and Jozef Fahey is Todd the Butt Dialer. Stevie Nelson plays Sarah, and Lyndsey Doolen is Todd’s the Butt Dialer’s new fiancee.

Geico: If You Have Alligator Arms, You Avoid Picking Up The Check

Yeah, I see how that could be a problem. Poor guy. Though I guess he’s a little less poor than he could be, since he’s not picking up that check. I’m glad Mr. Alligator enjoyed that duck, even if his dining mates seem less enchanted by his manners.
