Default Geico Gecko

okay. I'm sure everyone has seen the Geico insurance commercials with the Gecko lizard. 1 thing has always stumped me everytime i see them.

why in the hell does the Gecko have an accent? and what nationality/accent does he have? I was thinking Australian, but not too sure. I just don't understand why? i did a search and couldn't find anywhere where it says that actual gecko lizards come from a different country.


I know this is stupid, but it's one of those things that you get in your head and can't for the life of you let it go.

I know what you're going through, I was thinking the exact same thing when I woke up this morning. I'll have to uncover this mystery or else it'll be a ****ty New year for me.

They should just go back to the "I just saved a bunch of money on car insurance by switching to geico" stuff. That got a laugh outta me once in a while, but the new stuff just pisses me off
