Buy Geico Insurance, Don’t Get Eaten by Rescue Panther

New ads show less dangerous ways to save

These three new Geico ads from The Martin Agency are cute, but all of them have their glaring logical flaws. The couple who save money by getting the rescue panther instead of the pricey home security system surely spent more on exotic pet licenses and shots, and plus they're now at risk of being eaten in their sleep (if they ever fall asleep). Ronald the karaoke-dating guy, intimidated by costly matchmaking sites, could sign up for OkCupid, which is free. And let's not even talk about the bevy of problems that come with a grown man hiring middle-school girls to follow him around. Insurance won't be much good when the cops show up. Geico also has a new Maxwell the Pig spot out. Says the YouTube description: "In his quest for the most extreme thrill, Maxwell tries out the street luge and cries wee wee wee all the way home. Well, or until he gets to a really big hill. Or crashes." Three more spots, including that one, after the jump. David Kiefaber is a frequent contributor to Adweek's creativity blog, AdFreak.
