Real people meet celebrity testimonials in this tongue-in-cheek Geico insurance campaign directed by Chris Smith of bicoastal Smuggler for The Martin Agency, Richmond, Va. In "Burt Bacharach," the noted songwriter, clad in a tuxedo, sits at a piano alongside Brenda Coates, a real Geico customer. Coates relates her story, which is then translated sentence by sentence into song by Bacharach who provides piano accompaniment to his vocals.
