For many years Geico has employed a multiple-storyline advertising strategy where they often run multiple campaigns simultaneously to get across to consumers their multiple brand attributes.

They have launched a new campaign called ‘Count On’ with this new spot called ‘Game Night’ featuring the first ever sloth in a Geico spot.

On the heels of Geico’s final 'It’s What You Do' TV spot, comes a brand-new campaign delivering the brand’s classic savings message. Known as 'Count On,' the campaign launches with a 30-second ad starring a sloth. A neighborhood game night gets a little tense as people try to guess what the sloth is drawing (at a painfully slow pace). At the end of the ad, a spokesperson appears to deliver the line: “As long as sloths are slow, you can count on Geico saving folks money.” Playing off the brand’s strong association with saving people money, the new campaign will focus on similarly reliable, relatable truths that get taken to comedic extremes.
