So Much New Jersey Advertising, It'll Make You Vomit!
"So, what brings ya to Jersey?" a driver of a car on the New Jersey Turnpike asks his passenger in the back seat. Sitting contently is none other than the Geico gekko, who goes on to brag about how his company Geico is the number one car insurance company in the Tri-state area.
He then pulls out an extremely tiny foam finger to bestow his appreciation on this New Jerseyan for helping to gain this milestone. The driver accepts it and is left dumbfounded. All he can say is "That's great." Although this commercial wasn't the funniest of Geico ads, the gekko always amuses me. I find it surprising at how many people tell me that can't stand this little limey bugger! He's a good dude, cut him some slack.
I hate giving free advertising to giant companies like this, but it's impossible for me not to throw some attention at this crisp eating mascot since he winds up in New Jersey quite frequently. In fact, the Geico Gekko was previously the subject of the first ever installment of our Ad Jerseum column way back in 2010! You can read about the Gekko at the Loews Jersey Theatre in Jersey City, NJ right here!
