Watch the Geico Gecko and Colleagues Reenact Every Conference Call Ever

Bill Has Joined the Call. But Is Julie on Yet?

Do you relate to the Geico Gecko? If you're tiny, scaly and speak with a British accent, perhaps.

For the rest of us, The Martin Agency has delivered a new Geico spot, titled "Gecko Conference Call," that makes the insurance company's spokescreature totally relatable by circumstance. In it, the little fella is just trying to give a presentation (about the Geico mobile app) in an office conference room when a robotic speakerphone voice interrupts: "Bill has joined the call."

Cue the usual conference-call comedy of errors: lag time, awkward pauses, people asking who else is on the call, more awkward pauses, people talking over each other, and even more awkward pauses.

The Geico Gecko feels your pain! We feel the Geico Gecko's pain! (Now, um, go buy some car insurance?)
