aw thats so tough.
i’m gonna go with gecko.

Neither frankly. The Geico commercials annoy me. But if I would have to choose, it would be the gecko. The “even a caveman can do it, insert angry caveman” thing is old…and not funny.

I agree with PnL 100%.

I want their marketing team working for me. Both of those ads were brilliant.

willbrawn's avatar

I personally don’t like either. Played out to me. I like insurance with spokes “people”

lefteh's avatar

I think that Liberty Mutual’s ads are the best…the ones based on random acts of kindness.

I like the nature guy studying the gecko

BarbieM's avatar

If I have to choose I’d go with the gecko. I agree with leftrh about Liberty Mutual though. I love those commercials.

If we are gonna talk about other comercials i like the nationwide commercials

jlm11f's avatar

I like the nationwide commercials too. “Life comes at you fast :)”

lefteh's avatar

Oooh the Nationwide commercials. They come out of Columbus! I got to meet the guy in charge of creative advertising for Nationwide. Fun stuff.

Gecko…but, has anyone else noticed that they’ve gotten someone new to do the voice? A poor imitation, in my humble opinion. Love the Liberty Mutual spots, and the first time I see any Nationwide commercial, it definitely gets my attention!

@Bri L: lefteh does get to meet some exciting people…how does he do it?

@lefteh: Well? How do you do it? ;)

Bri_L's avatar

@ lefteh: Yeah how do you do it? hehe

lefteh's avatar

Like I said, get a job in politics!

No one has mentioned that the Geico gecko is supposed to be a representation of the Madagascar Day Gecko, yet it speaks with an Australian accent. Boourns.

lefteh's avatar

The Australian accent is just so cute….

They are both as annoying as the energizer bunny. I’ll take the Aflack duck!

Bri_L's avatar

@scamp – The origional duck. They have been getting desperate lately. Not fond of the racecar one.

lefteh's avatar

I like the Yogi Berra one.
Maybe that’s just because I love Yogi Berra.

MacBean's avatar

Yay for Yogi! He said some awesome stuff.

Bri_L's avatar

Not to threadjack-
I have a book by him “I didn’t say all the stuff I said”. He goes through and talks about all the quotes and the circumstances. The ones he said and ones he didn’t say. I also love the sports illustrated cover where he is facing away and it says “Yogi’s Back”.

tabbycat's avatar

Yes, Yogi is wonderful, and I never get tired of his Aflack commercial.

scamp's avatar

@Bri_L I haven’t seen the race car one. But I got lots of laughs from the early ones.

lefteh's avatar

I have a book of his called When You Come to a Fork in the Road, Take it! I love it.

Bri_L's avatar

I have to find that book

Gecko!!! I’m a sucker for his accent
