There aren't many people who haven't seen the Geico commercial featuring the therapist sergeant who belittles a patient on his couch for feeling sad. Well, the folks at Geico have decided to take advantage of President Obama's penchant for appearing on national television and discussing his agenda by featuring him in their next Therapist Sarge commercial.
While details of the commercial are sketchy, the general gist of the ad will have Obama on the couch telling the therapist that while he still thinks his original plans for the White House were good ones, he feels an obligation to change a few things to make the Republicans happy and more willing to cooperate with him during his next two years in office.
Of course, we can imagine the Sarge's response, calling him a Namby-Pamby President and ostracizing him for not standing up for his ideals. No one is yet sure what the tissue box will be replaced with, but we've been assured that the Sarge will throw something at Obama at the end of the ad, just as he did at the sad fellow.
Said a Geico ad executive, "We first thought of pairing the President with Gordon the Gecko, but the Gecko's persona clashed with that of the President." He continued, "While the cavemen showed a willingness to meet and work with the President, we felt the only way to truly capitalize on the President's celebrity at the present time is to focus on the uphill battle he is going to face from the Republicans. We decided the only one to accomplish a breakthrough for the President was Therapist Sarge."
Filming is set to begin immediately after President Obama returns from his trip to Asia later next week.
