You cannot skip this ad

Or at least Geico is making sure you won't want to.

Here’s the problem with pre-roll ads: agencies rarely, if ever, make them with their platform in mind, which means upwards of 90% of viewers hit that little “skip ad” button the moment it pops up. Geico’s agency The Martin Agency appears to have realized this and boiled the idea of savings into a (highly cheesy) chunk that fits into that brief moment before you’re allowed to skip it.¬†And while that may be novel enough, each spot has an extended version to show what you might be missing when you don’t give pre-roll ads a chance and leave during mid-air high fives and family dinners.
