Car insurance is serious business, but that doesn’t mean their commercials need to be boring. 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 cannot be stamped with a price tag.
