Geico has released a new commercial featuring a sumo wrestler figure skating as surprising in order to highlight what it’s not surprising: the money you could save by switching to Geico.
The 30-second spot shows how the unlikely contestant, convinced he will win a medal at this year’s figure skating competition, floats over the ice with efortless grace, impressing the crowd and the announcers.
“So graceful”, “The corkscrew spin – flawless, the signature move – The Flying Dutchman, poetry in motion. And there it is: Baby Bird. Breathtaking” – say the announcers deeply impressed by his performance.
The spot ends with the voiceover saying “This sumo wrester figure skating? Surprising. What’s not surprising? How much money Heather saved by switching to GEICO”.
