We all know that a Geico commercial goes like this...

blah blah blah blah...save 15% or more on Geico...blah blah blah...dumb-ass humor the end! 

I saw a few like the cuckoo clock, the damn gecko, and storybook Geico commercials...there's sooooo damn many let's just have it all lumped into one!
Thank God for kids who love Obscure Things.

In the Caesar's ad mouseprint:
 
"New customers report saving an average of $whatever."
 
This figure only includes those who "saved".
There is a separate number for those who didn't save (which is of course, most people).
 
In other words, you're on one list of the other.
They are ONLY telling you about one of the lists.
 
But if you "saved", then of course the average amount "saved" is impressive because the only way you "save" is by dropping kids off your insurance, raising your deductible, and/or lowering your policy limits.
 
In short:  ONE BIG FAT JUICY LIE.
But one that is well-crafted to be technically "true", as long as you don't ask about the other list.
 
It's a case of "paid less" does not equal "savings".
But most people are too stupid to realize that, so the tripe continues.....

For the most part...GEICO is just a nothing commercial that only mentions saving 15% or more on insurance for like...5 seconds and 25 seconds of it is humorless sh*t!

Me too.
And here again, we have the neutered, sexually inadequate know-nothing husband who requires rescue by the female. 
(Maybe I should have used a word other than "neutered" around the dachshunds!)
 
Anyway, would have been funnier if she'd had a pet gecko on her lap.  Tongue

I HATE this bitch! I can't stand smartphoners, especially smug ones like her.

I wish Geico as a whole would die a slow, painful, horrifying death. I wouldn't use them as my insurance company if they only charged a $1 a year for full auto coverage, because of their rotten, annoying, undignified, simple minded commercials thought up by drug-laced, alcoholic minds.

Also, your car would NOT crank that much if you had a dead or weak battery. You'd be lucky if you'd get some clicking sounds from all the relays trying to power up your vehicle.

Here's a new Geico commercial I already hate...


Better idea for this commercial...while everyone gets crushed...we see a lot of screaming and...It'd look more horrific!
