The Martin Agency, Terri Timely Team On Inspired Interruptions For GEICO

Following in the footsteps of its creatively inspired breakthrough pre-roll fare (such as “Unskippable,” “Fast Forward” and “Crushed”) for client GEICO, The Martin Agency has rolled out a new series of spots in which it admits they’re interrupting you and then lets you get in the fun by interrupting the interruption. Directed by the Terri Timely duo (Ian Kibbey and Corey Creasey) of Park Pictures, six dual interruption pre-roll spots are in this latest campaign, including this piece titled “Nighty-night” in which a couple in bed talks about GEICO only to be interrupted when two stationary bike exercise cyclists break through the bedroom wall. And then everyone gets interrupted again by an intrusive GEICO logo.

Neel Williams, VP, creative director at The Martin Agency, said, “In the previous three rounds of pre-roll work, we played with the concept of time. First by skipping to the end, then fast-forwarding through the middle. This year, we took a different approach, but still kept things very self-aware. Rather than apologize for the interruption, we thought it would be fun to lean into it.”

Associate creative director Mauricio Mazzariol of The Martin Agency added, “Getting interrupted before watching an online video is not exactly a Ferris wheel ride. So, these new Interrupt-a-palooza ads are supposed to bring some humor to the issue by embracing the disruptive nature of pre-roll and taking it to a whole new level.”
