Geico Insurance "Robot"

I normally hate Geico commercials, but the most recent one with the man reading the e-mail saying on how the Gecko should do the robot just made me crack up. It's a US commercial, and I was wondering what this 80ish techno song was that was used in it?

Gracias in advance.

If you e-mail them at the Gecko's blog, http://www.geico.com/blog/ then they will eventually post an answer. ;) Ask for the other new one with the green van while you're at it. Tons of people want to know both. ;) ;)

The same music was used for L'Oreal truematch ad with Beyonce Knowles. So this is not done for the ad. That L'Oreal ad was done by McCann Erickson. They never replied to my e-mails. Anybody know who did the Geico ad?

It's Martin Agency in Richmond, Virginia. If it is the same music then it must be stock. <_<

I think you have to pay a few thousand dollars for that stuff and they probably only license you to use it for one purpose. Like a commercial or other sound bite. Just a guess though. Others would know more about it than I.

I do know that this commercial feat Beyonce uses a sample of a Tupac song, I am currently wracking my head attempting to remember when i do I will post the song title. There haven't been to many changes made so maybe it will appease you to get the instrumental.
take it easy

That techno bit can be heard most recently on the "Ashley Simpson Show" on mtv after coming back from one to the commercials. It just aired today (7/12) at about noon central. Maybe mtv will be able to shed some light on the subject.

good luck

Heretohelp has said that this is stock music, not for sale. Heretohelp - can you reveal the source of your information?
