Old times song playing sounds like Elvis. Chicken going on a road trip. Chicken hitches a ride on a train. Chicken takes picture of itself. Farmer looks at picture on a phone says "he keeps taking pictures!" Then the smartass announcer says "If you're a free range chicken you roam free its what you do" First you see a birdseye view of a smart phone on a wooden table while a hand opens up a GEICO App then you see the GEICO logo on a background that's when you realize its a stinking GEICO ad! That when it gooooooeeessss doooooooowwwwwnnnnnhhhhhiiiillll.

Actually, when you take into account how outright obnoxious and insulting all the other insurance ads are, this one is almost enjoyable.

On second thought compared to the crap like esurance, State Farm, Farmers, Progressive, and such. This isn't half bad. I actually hope I see it again!

Okay, pay attention Adn.

I just change the channel when any of these come on. It's what I do..
To be honest, if I'm being open and talkative, I'm probably drunk. However, if you meet me during business hours, I'm sober as a stone.

I sometimes am able to get to the address bar but most of the times I am not able to get access to the address bar when I am on YouTube. I need the address bar to do the [tube] tags. Its just how my phone operates. Sorry.

Adn, would it be easier for you to go to the Share link underneath the red Subscribe button (which is underneath the channel's name) and copy and paste it from there?  then you can delete everything up to and including the equal sign for the code to put in between the [tube] tags.

I know a lotta people whose main computer stuff is done on their cellphones.  I don't know how they can do that.  The screen's too small, the keyboard's too small, and it's an all-round pain-in-the-ass to me.

I recently upgraded my old, cheap GoPhone to a newer, cheap GoPhone.  It has internet capability.  I used it once just to check it out.  No thanks.

I enjoy the desktop experience and have no intentions of getting a teeny tiny phone to serve as my computer.  I also have a laptop with large monitor.  My cellphone is a TracPhone and the browser sucks.  I downloaded Opera Mini and still it's only for emergencies to check something, not to use it for my Internet surfing and business needs. I have killer speakers for my desktop and audio enhancing software which makes my PC my stereo system and TV screen if I can't get it on my regular TV.

I mainly use an 8.4 in tablet. Once in a while I'll use the laptop, but very seldom. Sometimes I'll have issues with android not wanting to fully cooperate with posting pictures or videos and also changing font colors, etc. If you are running android I will suggest UC Browser. Fast, stable and runs almost all flash content. Runs better for me than Chrome, Firefox, Opera and several others that I've tried. Works good for this site, too.

This commercial's only come on once since it apparently started airing. I was in the kitchen when it came on and recognized Orbison's song, hear the random cackling, and by the time I got to the living room to see what the hell it was, all I heard was the spokesman's voice saying "It's what you do" and the rooster/chicken on the train.  Needless to say I had no idea what the hell the point was they were trying to make LOL  I figured maybe it'd be something to do with crossing the road.

My speakers and sound are pretty good too, the neighbors are lucky I don't turn on the main stereo.

That's the first time I believe I've watched the whole double helping of an ad on here!  I just like the ad, especially for the music, and the cool chicken.  I don't even care that it's for GEICO!

This commercial just makes me feel bad about the trillions of poor little innocent chickens that are kept in cages and murdered by people and not buying car insurance

It's bad that Geico has jammed their way into the media. Lead, follow or get out of the way.
 
They believe that they are such a powerful force, via the media, they can even make people really think it's just such simple common sense. 
"It's what you do"???
If you are brain washed by the constant sh*t on the air maybe, they have achieved their goal.
Not me though, there is a new one of the lizard in the airport I should try to find.  Angry
