Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills.
Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett, whose company owns GEICO, has said he enjoys his job so much that he tap-dances to work every day. That’s a feeling apparently shared by this group of GEICO employees.
Judging from the bell-bottoms, I’d be willing to bet that this photo was shot in the early 1970s, during a period of great growth and prosperity for the company. But if you put current styles in clothing and hair on these women, you’d have a picture that could have been shot last week. GEICO has been the fastest-growing auto insurer in the nation for most of this century, and we’re “cautiously optimistic,” as they say, about the future.
Heck, I’ve even seen some joyful dancing around here from time to time. But except for the odd Halloween costume, I’ve never seen outfits like some of these ladies are wearing.
What do you think they’d say today?
