Geico’s “Manatees in Novelty Tees”

This Geico commercial must rank pretty high on the silliness scale.  As a family visits a aquarium and pauses before the manatee (“sea cow”) exhibit, they are rewarded by a view of a quartet of the creatures, each wearing a different colored tee shirt, complete with slogan.  There are many surprising things in this world, you see…what’s not surprising is how much money the father, Matt, saved when he switched his insurance to Geico.  

“What does ‘come at me bro,’ mean?,” questions the son.  Dad replies that it’s something you say to a friend.  It’s good to know that manatees, sluggish though they may be, have a sense of fashion.  I do hope that their tee-shirts have color-safe dyes…

    I hear the alpha male manatee was named “Hugh.”

      I rather liked it as a dark episode, although it was a bit muddled with a lot going on. They kept you guessing, and the creepy kid’s show character was a nice nightmarish touch. Mulder’s instincts seldom fail him, and he’s a walking encyclopedia of paranormal information…
