People need to get smart about their smartphones. Every day in the U.S. nine lives are lost as a result of distracted driving. 

Yet people don’t seem to be taking heed. They often aren’t listening to others about the dangers of being on the phone while behind the wheel.

So for this commercial, GEICO tapped into a non-person who might get the message through to people--namely “Smart Dogs,” the first dogs trained to train humans. 

Spoiler alert: the experiment doesn’t go too well. The good news: GEICO has a simple tip that’s highly effective--turning on “Do Not Disturb While Driving Mode” on your smartphone. 

Directorial duo Terri Timely of Park Pictures helmed “Smart Dogs” for The Martin Agency, Richmond, Va. The spot debuted in April, which appropriately enough is Distracted Driving Awareness Month.
