Not really a bad commercial but not really valid outside of Wednesday. Don't the TV stations pay attention to this sort of stuff when airing the ads? Was Geico billed for air time? Kind of like playing Thanksgiving or Christmas sale ads after those holidays.

I despise this commercial and was hoping to NEVER see it again.  It's less about the commercial (though it does suck) and more about how for years, I've had to listed to people walking around parroting back that "what day is today" line every friggin Wednesday.  That sh*t wasn't funny six years ago and it hasn't gotten any funnier over time.

Count me in! Geico isn't getting a dime from me, thanks to their awful commercials. I had to mute this one every time it aired in 2013. 'UH OH! GUESS WHAT DAY IT-' CLICK! Now I have to do it all over again. Their ad campaigns (except the Gecko and their oldest ads like the Squirrel) can go to hell. Especially that freakin' Maxwell.

How can it be 'Hump Day'?  They never show the camel (or the people, for that matter) humping... LOL

I just hope Progressive doesn't go this low in their ads, by recycling the 'best of Flo' - shhh, don't tell 'em.

When this ad first came out it was before I retired from Active duty. Considering that my first name is "Mike" I had an endless stream of soldiers coming into my office every Wednesday saying "Mike, Mike, Mike...what day is it?!" By mid-afternoon I was ready to start shooting people. 
"Did somebody say 'HOG-RIDERRRR'?!!"
