This heroic one-man Goldmine serves as the latest showcase for SA's film-editing whiz Everdraed!

Everyone knows Geico for its witty commercials that feature characters such as lizard, cavedman, hump-day camel, and banjo guys, but every so often its marketing geniuses pitch an idea that's a little too 'raw' to be aired. Fortunately we were able to snag one of these for YOUR viewing entertainment! This ad starts at 1:25, if you're only in it for the laughs. The prologue takes a grim, documentary-style look at how the Gecko campaign's success came at the expense of erstwhile Geico ad guru Jerry Hall.
