Ad of the Day: M&M's, Geico Combine for a Delicious Ad Mashup


Geico and M&M's, the peanut butter and chocolate of comic advertising, have teamed up for this tasty peanut-butter cup of a commercial, in which Ms. Brown seeks to get insurance—much to the dismay of Geico's gecko, who has clearly read the company handbook on providing coverage to candy. (The edible are not eligible.)

There's a cameo by a third character, too, well timed for this midweek release.

M&M's agency BBDO New York led the creative, with input from The Martin Agency, which handles Geico. A social-media campaign on Facebook and Twitter will tell the larger story of Ms. Brown's efforts to secure insurance.

Lots of people claim to dislike advertising. But just as brand-on-brand Twitter banter is quite entertaining, the odd little feeling of delight you get while watching Ms. Brown and the gecko proves yet again that, try as you might, you actually can't resist brands at all.
