GEICO is running with the “auditions” ad campaign including Dick Vitale, Billy Blanks (click here for more on the Tae Bo ad), and now the music of Lisa Loebe. Check it out, then scroll down for more info!
GEICO has also shared the names of the cast…
Lisa Loeb: Herself
Casting Director Kari: Michole White
Casting Director Evan: Chris Aquilino
Camera Operator Kevin: Michael Strassner
The song Lisa Loeb sings is a variation of her song “Stay (I Missed You),” released in 1994. It reached #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and was part of the soundtrack for the movie Reality Bites. The music video was directed by Ethan Hawke.
Lisa recently celebrated a birthday, March 11th. She also loves cats, as shown in her Twitter bio: “Hi. I’m a singer/songwriter who loves food & cats.” More evidence… her music video (above) opens with a cat. And did you notice her guitar strap in the GEICO ad?
Outtakes! Who doesn’t love outtakes? Here are the bloopers from this ad…
These ads are directed by Randy Krallman, who I found out directed one of my favorite GEICO commercials, titled “Captain.”
Randy Krallman also did the voice for the E*Trade talking baby ads.
Be sure to follow these fine folks on their social channels…
