Directed by Terri Timely, the spots take a hilariously realistic approach to pre-roll ads, halting the action in the first few seconds to poke fun at the fact that few viewers stick around to see what happens next. GEICO “Unskippable: Family” finds an enthusiastic family sitting down to dinner when they all freeze after the mom delivers the first line, with the voiceover noting “You can’t skip this GEICO ad, because it’s already over.” The group remains frozen in the background as the family dog climbs onto the table, helping himself to several plates of spaghetti.
