Bob wehadababyitsaboy Geico commercial: social engineering in the 90s
Back in the late 90s/early 2000’s I used to watch a lot of wrestling, and I mean a lot. I was basically glued to all their programming on the USA network and with that came repetitive commercials. There were plenty of clever commercials but no matter how funny it may have been if you watch it hundreds of times you’re bound to get sick of it.
This is one such commercial that is so simple and yet it works, now more because of nostalgia not to mention it feels fresh again. Are long distance calls even a thing anymore? Likely not but anyone who wants to watch this commercial is probably another person who watched too many WWF shows on the USA network.
