car insurance gimmicks

Postby blinker » Wed Oct 11, 2006 11:23 pm

What’s your favorite car insurance gimmick? The talking gecko? The gruff cowboy? What makes you feel the most automotive safety?

I like the new one from Mercury (http://www.mercurytheory.com). If you haven’t seen it they are making the claim that the owners of Mercury are from Mercury and they’ve got all the corroborative evidence including a 10X magnification of burnt toast (check out the slides) that proves everything. Makes me chuckle.

I like the one where the happy family are all enjoying their Sunday drive in their big new car, with each of them having a different bottle of whisky in their hand, clearly drinking from the bottle, even the dog!

Drunk dogs suck. They barf everywhere. Whisky is wonderful til it's mixed with puke.

Is this still here? Damn, thought they'd catch it by now. Anyway, guess we should keep posting it

I like the Geico ad with the cavemen, too, but I think my favorite is the Mercury one where the "UFO expert" is convinced that he's found evidence in the backwoods of some hick state, and he meets said hick and the guy shows him the "alien" and the ufo expert is like "That's an armadillo".
