4 Hours Left to Support a Troper-Created Project : Personal Space (discuss)


  • Deader Than Disco: Almost nobody takes them seriously as a company anymore. Rival companies have entire ad campaigns dedicated to making fun of them.
  • Ear Worm: Tell me who's watching.....I always feel like somebody's WATCHING MEEEEE....
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Hump Day Camel may have gotten a bit of unfortunate because 9/11 fell on a Wednesday in 2013, making someone making a "Hump Day" joke and somebody saying "9/11". Luckily since this is the internet, where Black Comedy runs rampant, it can still come off as a little funny.
  • Memetic Mutation: Most of their famous commercials have been parodied to no end, particularly the "I've got good news" and Michael Mc Glone rhetorical question ones.
  • Not So Crazy Anymore: One of the "Why haven't you called GEICO?" ads from 2004 featured a fake reality show called Tiny House. The ad was a good take on typical ads for reality shows of the time and probably fooled many people. The concept presented was two newlyweds who have to live together for one year in the titular tiny house. "The drama will be real... but it won't save you any money on car insurance." However, just look at the related videos on YouTube and you'll see a bunch of listings about actual tiny houses. Since the airing of the ad, an actual "tiny house movement" has gained a lot of traction.
