GEICO Ancient Pyramids Were A Mistake Commercial

GEICO Ancient Pyramids Were A Mistake Commercial
38 votes, 3.37 avg. rating (67% score)

Two construction works are eating lunch while leaning against their work truck. A taxi drives by with an advertisement for GEICO displayed on the roof. The smaller construction worker, having noticed the advertisement, says “Huh, 15 minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance.” The bigger construction worker remarks “Yup. Everybody knows that.” Embarrassed that he might not be as smart as the bigger construction worker, he replies “Well, did you know that the ancient pyramids were actually a mistake?” hoping to redeem himself. The bigger construction worker turns and looks at him like he’s an idiot. Then we cut to the ancient egyptians building the pyramids. The foreman of the pyramid project observes the almost finished pyramids, and then looks down at the blueprints he his holding. The blueprints for the pyramids show that they’re supposed to be huge squares (or cubes), not triangular pyramids. Now aware of the mistake, he simply utters “…uh oh.” under his breath and turns to look at his assistant.

    People, listen… It’s a TV commercial! A very funny TV commercial. No need to make it political, religious, or defamatory. It’s hilarious, and sells insurance for Geico. Thats all it is!! Where was the outrage when Geico was hilariously defaming out cave-man ancestors!! Get a life, people!

    I have 5 words” GET THE FU*K OVER IT”. It’s a Damn commercial meant to be clever to sell insurance. For all you bible thumpers, do you participate in the Santa clause lie? Because if you do you’re no better trying to be all Jesus this and God that. You make me sick. It’s about Jesus not Santa. I served in the United states army infantry and went to Iraq 3 Times in combat. I saw things that would make some of you commit suicide but do I complain about that? No I do not. Grow up and deal with it. If you don’t like it than MOVE TO ANOTHER COUNTRY. Oh my God did they just make fun of a race lets all Get together and complain about it and pull the race card. This is why our country is in trouble because of the people who can’t seem to pull the stick out of their ass and live life. Some of you need a good hard lesson on having tough skin and to not be such a pansy. I’m out.

    I’m a Jewish/Israeli man and I found it offensive. Having said that what if geico made a commercial about a story in the bible pertaining to Jesus and joked around, would that be funny?

    You fuckers just want to be angry for the sake of being angry. It’s a stupid commercial, just like all other Geico commercials.

    Blacks didn’t build the pyramids, or anything of significance for that matter. Ancient egyptians, who are similar to the egyptians who currently inhabit the land, did. Read history, you idiots. Afro-centric statements like these make you look like absolute fools trying to cling to whatever they can.

      Moors civilized Europe but we didn’t build anything of significance? You’re an idiot.

    • Egypt March 8, 2014 2:04 pm  Reply

      Please explain the astounding amount of artifacts and other evidence to prove ancient Egyptians were black??? Please lay your misguided view of my history as insignificant. Ancient Egyptians paved the way in civilization that was mimicked by every other civilization after. The pharaohs descended from family blood lines until the Roman empire took over after the empire was already collapsing. Don’t believe me, hit the books. Since you claim to be a student of HIStory, this should be light work

    The commercial totally disregarded the the original inhabitants of that land who built those pyramids which was the black man of the nile valley civilization.

      Wrong, this commercial proves that Jesus was white.

    Yes the people who build the pyramids were blacks. There are indeed white people who know this and agree with that statement.

    In regards to the geico commercial I find it very very offensive. We’re talking about at least 4000 years b.c. on the continent of africa even Egypt Egyptos itself means land of blacks given to them by the Greeks who were taught everything they knew the sphinx itself has been dated 17000 years b.c. With unquestionable evidence the men in the commercial represent modern day Egyptians who are the offspring of the invading

    Pyramid ad is totally offense b.s. Pyramids one of the 8 wonders of the world, how would the white executive who dreamed up this idea believe they are a mistake

    Also, white people had nothing to do with black men whom built pyramids. Commercial is inaccurate, racist leaning & Hollywood misleading no white skinned Pharoah’$ wee’re in Africa 2,500 years ago. Joke is on Geico, with this garbage ad- A Black Man.

      Wow. A little butthurt? It’s just a silly commercial. You’re the racist. You watch a commercial and immediately start looking at the race of the actors.

      • fire girl October 7, 2013 6:29 pm 

        Omg foxe you are so right why has always got to be made into a damn race thing.

      • Egypt March 8, 2014 2:36 pm 

        No we are looking at the blatant disregard for history. That makes the commercial not accurate. If they want to display “true” savings they need to display the TRUTH

    That’s because there weren’t African slaves building the pyramids….it was Palestinians.

    This is a complete falsification of history. I know it is a joke but the image of the men does not depict Africans in that region.
