NEW! Geico Launches Pirate, Beachy Campaigns
By Amy Corr
Geico launched a pair of TV under different brand taglines. The first ad falls under the "It's What You Do" message and stars a pirate about to make an enemy walk the plank. Whatever the pirate says, his faithful parrot mimics. The parrot then went off-script, reciting things his master has said before, about hiding gold from his unintelligent crew. The crew soon turns on the pirate and some lucky soul avoided the plank walk. The next ad falls under "More, More, More" and features two dads building sandcastles with their kids. One dad switched to Geico to receive more benefits and his sandcastle becomes a work of art. The other dad must have regular insurance because his sandcastles look like mine, humps of sand from an overturned bucket. The Martin Agency created the campaign.
