Geico: Runway Models On An Airport Runway Are Surprising

Flight delays aren’t surprising at all…the last two times I’ve flown, there have been massive delays. But if you were delayed because of runway models on the runway, yeah, that would be surprising. The ground crew is getting really into the show. And contrary to what that one passenger thinks, I bet the lace looks nice on the model.

Geico: Caesar On A Caesar Salad Is Surprising

Caesar salad was created by restauranteur Caesar Cardini, who was an Italian immigrant. It has nothing to do with Julius Caesar. Still, it’s amusing to see Julius Caesar deliver dramatic platitudes to befuddled diners. And of course, the lady ordered soup, not salad. It’s reminiscent of Geico’s Marco Polo spot, which also puts a historical figure in the modern day. The actor who plays Caesar is fantastic…he’s played by the interestingly named Time Winters.

 

Geico: Ordering A Getaway Car With An App Is Surprising

Ride hailing apps such as Uber and Lyft have proven to be invaluable over the last few years. Just whip out your phone, and you can get picked up in a matter of minutes. Of course, if you just pulled off a heist at an art museum, ordering a getaway car with an app probably isn’t the best idea. Their drivers make wrong turns too, even if they’ve got a four-star rating, and a trustworthy name like Randy. This is one of the funnier ads from the “It’s Not Surprising” campaign, partly because it seems like something that might actually happen nowadays. Also, here’s an article from today’s Wall Street Journal about people who get into random cars mistakenly thinking it’s their Uber or Lyft.

 

 

Geico: You Probably Don’t Want Tiki Barber As Your Barber

Tiki Barber was a good NFL running back, and he’s a charismatic TV and radio personality. But despite his name, Tiki Barber wouldn’t be a good choice if you were going in for a haircut. It’s a bit predictable, but still a chuckler…especially if you’re a football fan.

Geico: A Sumo Wrestler Figure Skating Is Surprising

I like it, but I think it would have been even funnier if they had a fatter sumo wrestler. What say you?

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.
