* One early advertising campaign for GEICO featured something like this; each animated short had a curious man doing something ''really'' dumb (like walking up to a cannon and then pressing a button next to it, causing the cannon to fire in his face), at which point the voiceover announcer would say, "We all do dumb things. Paying too much for car insurance doesn't have to be one of them."
