Geico's version of a song I have heard on the radio, I'll call it 'Crap Cake'.  AngryAngry
 
 
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

The commercial I was forced to hear and watch was more for a marathon in Vegas (?) than it was about insurance... a woman running. Did it having anything to do with my life? No, because i wasn't going to travel across country for a marathon they were sponsoring.
I am part of the target audience....and I hate it.

Holy sh*t, I thought Geico's version was bad, but damn, that original is even worse.

Sad, ain't it? You could tell they worked really hard on the lyrics!

About as hard as that assclown worked on his attire, I'm guessing.

This song was awful 20 years ago..not much better now.

Few really bad 90's tunes that made it to recent ads, lot of them car ads, Target comes to mind also. This pile of crap was in car ad few years ago. No idea what "Peaches" has to do with cars

Hey I LIKE Cake..they are pretty solidly groovy. That said, if they have sold out to "Its what you do' folks that is a pretty bad sign..although I am sure Geico $ is like Disney $
I have yet to see this besmirch my shows..I am sure its coming though
Baggin the tiki since the 90s
