Geico “Cats and Dogs” Commercial…

– – In a wonderful nod to the classic car chase from the movie Bullitt as well as 1970’s detective shows (think “Starsky and Hutch”), the latest Geico “Cats and Dogs” commercial asks whether Geico can save you 15% with actor Mike McGlone answering himself,  “Do dogs chase cats?” Then we’re treated to an old-school car pursuit with a furry twist…

Cool at the wheel of an early 1970’s Mustang is an orange tabby (Jax the cat),  who doesn’t appear overly concerned about a hot pursuit by a boxer (Drake the dog) in a beat-up gas guzzler through mean city streets.  There’s even a  funky jazz fusion soundtrack to accompany the chase sequence!

While we’re not  shown the outcome of the chase, we do get a cool undercarriage shot as one of the cars vaults a rise in the road.   My money’s on the feline wheelman, who needs fear no boxer for torque art with him…

    It was cute. Although, technically illegal.*

    *Neither one was licensed to drive. 😉

      I’m not gonna tell the cat that…I think he can take care of himself, and may be packing heat!

    • vulpesffb Says:

      –Hey!–If Toonces the cat wants to drive, don’t stand in his way!

      • carycomic Says:

        Not unless I have a weight-lifting bodyguard who can throw a 14-k gold barbell across the path of his car.*

        *Like, maybe, the Mercury Cougar or XKE Jaguar? 😉

    I thought only wolves “packed.”
