GEICOween is coming!


In a series of Halloween-themed commercials, Geico insurance introduces us to Griselda the witch, a witchy but wonderfully hip witch who builds on traditional stereotypes to in one commercial host a karaoke cooking show, complete with bubbling cauldron in which angel sneezes and a thumb drive are added to the brew!

But I digress…in one wonderful, furry-themed commercial, two female college students have taken in Griselda as a compromise roommate, one seeking someone who can help with the cooking, and the other wanting someone who likes cats.  Griselda fits the bill nicely, spoon-feeding one of the students soup that transforms her into an anthropomorphic cat complete with cat ears, facial features, and furry forearms… I’d drink of that brew anytime! While her cooking may be questionable, Geico can really help these students with renters insurance, we’re told.

Anyways, Griselda is a real hoot as is her furry creation, and deserves to be a breakout  character.  We Halloween lovers thank you, Geico…watch for yourself, and meow!

    Thanks, Vulp! 🙂

    I have to confess, though, the main reason I instantly liked the commercial is because the name “Grizelda” reminds me of the late, great Peter Tork. During his time with the Monkees, back in the 1960’s, he contributed that wonderfully memorable song, of his own composition… “Auntie Grizelda.”

      On a route I travel to the beach, I pass an exit for a town called “Clarksville.” It takes considerable time thereafter before I can get that Monkees song out of my head, and I always wonder if I could catch the last train there…

        Btw: I just saw the next commercial in this series. It subtly riffs the plot-gimmick used by Joss Whedon in “CABIN IN THE WOODS.”

        With the creeped-out home owner beating a somewhat dignified retreat…while simultaneously leaving the Gecko behind. 😆

    Reminds me of the old lady that Reed and Sue Richards employed to mind their kid, Franklin; her name was Agatha Harkness…
