GEICO has not called me but I love those commercials when the man turns a very serious face to the camera and says ” Can GEICO save you money on your car insurance, then he asks an obvious question like “Did Elmer Fudd have problems saying his R’s?” I knows GEICO or their ad agency mean to call me and ask for some ideas for future commercials using this same format. So I have been happy to think some up. And as a fun exercise, when you see a line you like, image what visual would go with it.
