He beats the Geiko Gecko from the get-go?

September 17, 2009

Okay, creative staff. Here’s another chance to prove we’re the best damn advertising agency around! Our client is an insurance company that is tired of competing with that  Geiko Gecko.

Amid great secrecy, they’ve groomed a genuine reptile of their own. No animation, no computer generation, just the real thing. Look at him in his lounge chair!

This guy is big and kind of nasty, so be careful. Herb, don’t get too close, or…. Ow! That’s unfortunate!

How many fingers did you have on that hand, Herb? Well, if people ask, just tell ’em it’s a reptile dysfunction. Get it?

Anyway, instead of all that cuteness of the Geiko Gecko, our guy will be more threatening. He’ll have a deep, bellowing voice and just say, “Iguana insure you!!!!!”

I’m telling you, nobody’s going to want to irritate this guy. Especially when they see Herb’s fingers dangling out of his mouth!

Hmmm… New ground for Larry Flynt?

Normally, this blog makes me smile.

Today, “Iguana insure you!” made me laugh a little too loudly at my desk.

Thanks a lot.
