I guess you could say I respect companies like Geico and Progressive for coming up with some creative insurance campaigns.Â I must admit I kind of like the “caveman can do it” stuff but overall I’m not a huge fan of anything else.Â The Progressive girl who says “discount!” couldn’t be any more annoying if she tried. Â Also, the new “is Ed Too Tall Jones tall?” stuff from Geico really irritates me.
Insurance is and should be funny.Â We should embrace the fact that unforeseen things happen in our lives.Â After all, that’s what insurance is for.Â So why not exploit these occurrences in commercials?Â We as Americans don’t tend to so.
But our European and Asian friends definitely do.Â Check out these funny foreign insurance commercials.
