What are the top 10 car insurance company commercials?
Car insurance is not a funny industry but tell that to Madison Avenue. Some of the most popular videos online are from car insurance companies and include Geckos, Caveman, some girl named Flo and even a little Piggy.
Almost all major car insurance companies are trying to attract the online generation but nobody does it better than GEICO car insurance. In fact, when we compared the YouTube impressions of commercials from some of the major car insurance companies no one came close to the popularity of GEICO.
In a letter to shareholders on February 26, 2010 Warren Buffet disclosed GEICO’s massive advertising budget of $800 million, almost double the $453 million spent in 2005 and twice the size of the nearest competitor!
What does $800 million buy you? Well, a brand that is more well known than any neighbor who might always be there and a level of coolness that simply can not be stamped with a price tag.
What are the top 10 Car Insurance Company Commercials?
Well, they ALL belong to GEICO but we did throw a couple others in this list so the other companies wouldn’t feel so bad.
According to impressions from a sample of US car insurance companies channels on YouTube we studied the top car insurance company ads and came up with this list:
#10 State Farm – “Magic Jingle Hot Tub”
State farm commercial of a baseball flying through a living room window and emphasizing State Farm is always there. Almost 200,000 views for this is most likely way too much as nothing original or unique in terms of advertising but then again – how do you ever catch the Gecko?
# 9 Allstate TV Ad: Mayhem is Coming Teen Driver
Dean Winters drives a Pink SUV and well – yes, its about as funny as Dean Winters driving a Pink SUV. Short but great.

Can legendary soccer announcer Andres Cantor make ANY sport exciting? He certainly can and with almost 600,000 viewers Mr. Cantor also made car insurance company commercials fun to watch.

The title says it all. Just perfect.
