GEICO makes me happier than …

Here at GEICO, we hear stories every day about people who have switched to GEICO; they love to share how much they saved via Facebook and Twitter. That got us thinking: sure, switching to GEICO could make people pretty happy, but how happy?

That’s the question we’re hoping to answer with a new set of commercials that have already started showing up on your TV. We’re calling it “Happier Than …” It’s a way to bring some happiness to your TV screen and let you know just how happy you could be by switching to GEICO.

Our first commercial here stars the famous Gallagher – you know, the one who hits watermelons with a huge mallet. In answering the question, “How happy are people who switch to GEICO,” we hear the first of many responses: happier than Gallagher at a farmers market. What other source of happiness will appear? You’ll see many more soon, but one involves a famous explorer of the new world.

So, what does GEICO make you happier than? Let us know on Facebook, Twitter, or right here in the comments.

    The banjo guys kill the humor and are insulting to the intelligence of the audience. Just show the bit and then have the logo say ‘Get Happy’. The audience will enjoy figuring it out and the joke will play much better.

    Auto insurance is an Accident Lottery ticket. Pursuit-of-happiness management–a low-cost entry fee ramps up the dream payoff–you survive an accident, and snag a handsome settlement, all the while servicing your debt to the collective malaise. Kudos, Mad-Ave. magicians! The “Electric Horseman” theme gone bananas! How happy are we Ronnie? Not quite as happy as Alex with his residual checks, enh?

    Fade in: An actor dressed as author Jules Verne is running through a modern city.  He sees someone surfing the net at an Internet Cafe and says with a big smile on his face “Woo Hoo! I predicted that!”.  Then a succession of cuts with Verne seeing: Somone watching television in their living room (“Woo Hoo! I predicted that!”), someone using a cell phone (“I predicted that!”), seeing the space shuttle take off (“I predicted that!”), Verne on the shuttle, seeing an orbiting satellite (“Woo Hoo! I predicted that!”)
