Girl has milkshake. Boy is filling up the car. Girl looks at boy. Boy decides to bet it all on goofy dance moves set to George Harrison’s "Got My Mind Set On You". When I say goofy, I mean goofy.
GEICO Dough Boy Commercial - Happier than the Pillsbury Doughboy on His Way to a Baking Convention - (2013)
The Pillsbury doughboy sneaks a deadly baking pin through security and a TSA agent tries to frisk him without tickling him. Suddenly the cobranded tag is useful again, because Geico has done this sort of thing before. Isn't hilarious that advertising mascots are celebrities too? The Pillsbury Doughboy is in his own league, he starred in a Milk ad already back in 2004. That was epic.
Mrs. Buttersworth, the talking bottle of syrup, makes it to celebrity status in this new spot for Geico. Definitely a bizarre cross promotional feel...although I guess it makes sense when you get into a sticky situation and you need insurance. ;)
I suppose it makes some targeted marketing-type sense to lump these two products together, but now thanks to this damn commercial, I think and smell poopy diapers when I see Cheerios. Thanks a lot, guys!
This calls for a better 2-fer slogan than their instantly forgettable "Bright Mornings." How about something like... "For Mouth and Down South" or "From Chew to Loo" ... Help'em out, gang! I'm sure they'll appreciate it.
