I realize some of you might find this entertaining and I accept that.
What bothers me is that this "It's What You Do" thing isn't going away fast enough to suit me.
Geico really thinks it is telling people "What to do".  I'm not getting that message at all. AngryAngry

Imagine how much money they could save people if they stopped making all these ridiculously stupid advertisements.

All insurance is a scam. If I don't get into an accident for a year, can I get my yearly payment back since they didn't need my money? The answer is of course no.

Tell ya what, though, a Kraken snatches me up on the 10th hole and the last thing I'm going to be thinking of is insurance. I guess what we're going for here is "golf announcers whisper no matter what".

HA HA HA HA HA HA 

SO effin funny, Geico.

You just know the pinheads on Youtube are eating this crap up though, so Geico will add the kraken to their list of mascots.

I'd wish the big kraken would take the whispering idiots as victims just to shut the dips*!ts up. Hell I would LOVE it if The GEICO Kraken attacked GEICO HQ! Actually I would it if GEICO was forced outta business or simply DIDN'T ADVERTISE!

LOLLOL
Geico should consider taking on Life Insurance too.
That might leave a mark!  Some other company has a T'Rex crashing through their home.
Oh Yeah! You're covered.  How many f**king lies do we have to accept.

I gotta say though, that I did enjoy seeing those golfers getting grabbed by a giant monster.

I don't think much of golf or those who play it.



Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

100% agreed. I would love to see Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson in this ad. Maybe get chewed up at the end.

These commercials remind me of Family Guy cutaways. Just like Family Guy, they've run this into the ground, they just switched the presentation. First it was that guy in front of the curtain, then the banjo playing hipsters, now this.

Enough already, Geico.

Don't you know they are saving us $449.37. Just like every other insurance company? Oh! That is not possible. Could they all be lying?

I'd pay a dollar to see Tiger "washed up" Woods and Phil "goat eyes" Mickelson be consumed.

There's almost enough crapola by Geico to warrant giving it its own forum! Ouch

Speaking of golf, ever heard of the Red Green Show? In short, the main character made all sorts of redneck projects with duct tape. But, after the show ended, the actor who played the main character wrote a book entitled How to Do Everything. Regarding golf, one of the things he said was,

"The longer you play golf, the more swear words you need."

Kinda like we need more remotes because eventually the mute button will wear out due to the annoying Geico ads. But, I do like the scapegoat.

I loved The Red Green show. I wish PBS would start playing it again.

Pretty F pathetic how these idiots use the same "it's what you do" BS and apply it to every single one of their new BS commercials. Uh, no one F thinks you idiots are clever. If their job is to annoy the hell out of you so you'll immediately run to them with 15 minutes to supposedly save 15%, it ain't gonna fly with me. To hell with that company.

Comcrap and geico are the worst. I'm glad I don't do any business with either of these POS outfits.

It can be made much better:
Just show a few frames with the Kraken tentacles holding either a camel or a caveman!
