Key takeaways...

  • Some of the funniest commercials are made by car insurance companies
  • The GEICO gecko is world-renowned
  • Progressive uses the fictional saleswoman, Flo as their trademark

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, a 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  popular car insurance commercials from some major car insurance companies, no one came close to the popularity of GEICO.

In a letter to shareholders on February 26, 2010, Warren Buffett disclosed GEICO’s massive auto insurance ads 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 well known than any neighbor who might always be there and a level of coolness that simply cannot be stamped with a price tag.

– #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, it’s about as funny as Dean Winters driving a Pink SUV. Short but great.
