Capital One: Charles Barkley, Samuel L. Jackson, And Spike Lee Return For More Hilarious March Madness Commercials

And now comes the return of a beloved yearly ad campaign: Capital One’s March Madness. For those not familiar, these ads center on Charles Barkley’s clownish personality, with Samuel L. Jackson and Spike Lee either laughing at him, or playing straight men roles to a certain extent. Jim Nantz also appears in some of the spots. We see Charles wear a ridiculous “Chuxedo”, and hold up giant “Chuckmojis” at the game. Elsewhere, Chuck shows up with a parrot his shoulder named “Larry Bird”, when he runs into the real Larry Bird who has a dog named “Charles Barkley.” The gang gets punny with a “Mini Soda” and a “Mini Apple” when they’re in Minnesota for the Final Four. More puns come with Chuck’s Final Fourgasbord, which features “Charles Broccoli”, “Jim Nantz on a log”, “Ham Jackson”, and “Spike Brie.” Chuck also loves alerts with airhorns. Ahaha. I love these!

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!
