Geico has released the latest installment in the 'Gecko' campaign, titled “Airshow.”

Said a Martin Agency creative team member: “In most spots with the Gecko, he is always very well-spoken and articulate, and so we thought—what would happen if we put him in a situation where he was thrown a little bit off his game? The Gecko at a loss for words? That’s something Geico fans have never seen before. And when we found out that Geico has a team of stunt pilots who fly the Skytyper planes, we thought that would be the perfect way to throw him for a loop…literally.”

In addition to “Gecko,” Geico is currently also running work from their 'Not Surprising', 'Great Answer', 'Take A Closer Look' and brand new 'Count On' campaigns.
