Salt-N-Pepa Tell Football Players and Pregnant Ladies to Push It for Geico


If you're excited by rumors of a Salt-N-Pepa reunion album, you'll thoroughly enjoy this Geico ad where Salt, Pepa and DJ Spinderella don their famous jackets and tell everybody to push it.

Divorcing the song from its sexual connotations, the ladies are now here to help anyone who needs some encouragement with their pushing. They help a man who tries to pull open a door that needs to be pushed. They help a lady in an elevator who needs to select a floor. They show up at a Lamaze class, then on a football sled, and finally they dance after a poor man trying to mow his lawn.

It's pure silliness. But it certainly is memorable. And since Geico doesn't have to use its ads to tell you what it does (save you 15 percent on car insurance, as everybody knows), it might as well have fun with it.

Also, you're not going to be able to push "Push It" out of your head for the next few hours.
