Listen for Charlie Daniels in new GEICO commercial

From Post staff reports

GEICO launched four TV spots Monday as part of a new campaign, called Rhetorical Questions.

The new commercial joins their on-air rotation as the fifth current storyline, in addition to the Gecko, Cavemen, “Talking Accidents” and googly-eyed “Kash.”

During the past 15 years, everyone’s heard GEICO’s famous tagline: “15 minutes could save you 15 percent or more on car insurance.”

With that in mind, GEICO’s savings message has a refreshed twist. The idea: people know this tagline so well, we could phrase it as a rhetorical question.

Each spot begins with an investigative reporter-type host, played by Mike McGlone (from “The Brothers McMullen“) asking the question: “Could switching to GEICO really save you 15 percent or more on car insurance?”

Well . . .

“Is Ed “Too Tall” Jones too tall?”

“Does Charlie Daniels play a mean fiddle?”

“Does Elmer Fudd have trouble with the letter R?”

“Did The Waltons take way too long to say goodnight?”

Obviously, GEICO’s answer is a resounding “yes.”
