Geico’s Raccoons Steal A Garbage Truck And Run A Food Truck

Geico is now running a campaign where they’ve created sequels to some of their more popular commercials, and you can vote for your favorite. So far, they have spots featuring Pinocchio and woodchucks (more on those later), but my early favorite stars the raccoons. In one, the raccoons live out a (presumed) raccoon dream, and jack a garbage truck. Except they don’t really know how to drive it, and they drop some precious cargo, like half a cheesesteak. Luckily, the cheesesteak is recovered. The raccoons also jump on the hipster foodie trend and start a food truck called “Chez Dumpster.” Trashy back ribs and melon rind stew…yum!

 

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.
