Geico

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I am soo sick of there commericals,
i was watching some shows i recored over the weekend, and every other commerical seems to be for geico. The cave man thing is getting old and beat to death and the ones on time spent on the internet ones, are so bad that i turn off the tv or put on mute until the commericals are over.

even if i need insurance right now, i would not use them for annoying me now.

I know what you mean Bruce. And if theres a song to go with it sometimes you find yourself singing it in your head all day

This is one of ours that really annoys me because the tune sticks!!!. "Sheilas Wheels Car Insurance"

I like you too. Hey, you just hijacked your own thread!

Luckily, we don't get Geico commercials here. But we have our own annoying ones. There's a local store called "Dodd's Furniture" and because of the commercials, we avoid that place at all costs. The Dodd owner-guy dresses up in the commercials. He's tried to be Captain Jack (Johnny Depp he ain't), the Hulk, Spider Man, and many others I don't even want to try to remember!

Yea I knew when I was considered a student again: I began to receive junk mail for credit card applications.

Anyways, I agree, the caveman thing IS OLD. What happened to the commercial with the bunnies getting their rabbits feet reattached? I liked that commercial...and we need more like that.

That commercial was so funny! The best part about it was when they had the bunny swimming in the tub in slow motion.

I'd forgotten about that one! I thought that was so cute

I like the Geico commercials, but they do play them too much. Especially the caveman one. But, you got to admit, they are memerable.
post #17 of 29
geez i think id smash the tv if that commercial came on more than once susan!
post #18 of 29
The Geico ones are suffering from too many showings. They were fresh at the beginning but now, ho-hum. I can't believe they are talking about making a series with the cavemen.

I actually had once set of commercials repulse me so badly that I stopped using the product. I had been going to Quizno's every once in a while but when they started with the road-kill puppets, I was so turned off that I've been there maybe once in the last 2 years.

You said that! Not us.

I agree with you, Bruce. Those commercials are annoying big time.
post #20 of 29
I'm tired of the ones with the gecko talking but still like the one with the squirrels, though.

Around here it's Crazy Larry (furniture store) and Ra & Ben (a tire store's redneck takeoff of Uni, Roy, & Al).

We have a local business owner that does that, too - Tucson Appliance.

As for Geico, that gecko has been annoying me, for years. I DID like the commercial, where he was sitting in the old lady's living room, surrounded by cats, though.

I agree - they are irritating!

Luckily I don't watch much tv so not much of a problem for me!
post #23 of 29
they are very annoying commericals, but it got my attention last summer to check it out, and i did.

GLAD I DID!!!

I saved over $500 for a 6 month policy over Progressive!!!!

We looked at Geico due to their ads when we first got to the US and they were the only company who would accept our Australian driving history, so charged us half what anybody else was trying to charge us.

What was REALLY funny was that AAA was trying to get us to switch to them, and said how competitive they were, so I called them for a quote, and they were $700 more then Geico because they didn't accept our driving history. The woman tried to tell me that AAA were just really good quality, and maybe in a years time when we've built more of a US driving history we should call them again for another quote. I don't think so lady!!! Geico has been awesome, and saved us a fortune, we'll be sticking with them for a while, even if someone does end up cheaper since they were so good to us and so easy to deal with.

As for the commercials now - we DVR everything we watch and it automatically skips the ads, so we never see any of them!

The gieco commercials aren't that bad, I actually think the ones for motorcycle insurance are funny. But they don't really show those very often.

Now this is an annoying commercial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYEzhpaOdtc
Anyone that lives in or has lived in Oklahoma will know this jingle. In fact we can all sing it and it's sort of one of those signs that it's the Christmas season.
