The folks in those Geico ads are in fact real customers

If you haven't seen a Geico commercial in the last couple months, you haven't turned on the TV. And even though the ones with the caveman are my favorites, I thought it was pretty cool to learn that the "real customers" in the ads with Burt Bacharach, Verne Troyer, Charo, Little Richard and other celebs are in fact real customers.

Fellow flosser Kara Kovalchik claims she "stumbled into" two articles about these customers. I'm not sure how that happened but I'm glad she did. Here they are:

The man with Verne Troyer

The woman with Bacharach

Maybe this will inspire others to write Geico so that they too can be in commercials with C-list celebrities.
