...Exactly What sort of accent does that Gecko have?...
That's not the Queen's English I hear.
It's difficult to understand why an ad agency might feel that an American might want to purchase insurance from a little green British gecko. There are several reasons why this advertising campaign's Push makes little sense.
1. Geckos are not commonly found in England. Besides, wasn't he Australian last year?
2. Though they're cute, there's no track record here for advancing insurance sales.
3. Geckos are not known to be especially wise on matters of insurance.
4. They're cute. Insurance has never been "cute".
As far as I'm concerned an animation competition between Rhythm and Hue's salamander and Wildbrain's Erin Esurance is no contest.
Sorry, Pink-haired Erin wins. Hands down.
