Insurance Spokesmodels, US Versus UK

Posted in Auto Show Girls, General, Girls, Motorcycle by Kurt Ernst | February 28th, 2010 | 4 Responses |

The Geico gecko, so cute you could step on him

There are a lot of good things about living in the USA, like driving on the correct side of the road or being able to own guns. On the other hand, living in the UK has its own unique advantages, besides being able to buy a Ford Focus RS.

Take, for example, the spokesmodels used to sell us insurance in the US. We have the Geico gecko (pictured above), Flo the uber annoying Progressive pitch woman and Erin, the disturbingly hot Esurance cartoon character.

Flo, the Progressive girl. As enjoyable as nails on a chalkboard.

Erin, from Esurance. DO NOT image search Erin+Caveman. Just don't.

Britain, on the other hand, has Bennets babes. Their job, it appears, is to convince you to purchase motorcycle insurance through Bennets. I can’t even buy their insurance, yet I’m strangely convinced it’s the correct coverage for my needs.

Always stretch your tripceps before a ride, as this Bennetts girl shows

Keep your elbows slightly bent, as this helpful Bennetts girl demonstrates.

Always wait until after the ride to use your cell phone.

It's good to stretch your abs before a ride, too.

This Bennetts girl shows proper tire changing dress.

Sorry, Ms. Bennetts, I don't think those Kevlar strips will help in a crash.

Always wear protective gear.

If we agree to drink tea, watch cricket, call a trunk a ‘boot’, use lorries instead of taxis and call our friends ‘mates’, will you send us a few proper insurance spokesmodels?

  1. Ow, that top pose is PAINFUL to maintain.

    She’s going to hurt herself riding in that getup. You’d think an insurance company would show a rider in full safety gear, as encouraging such behavior would have the end result of lowering their operating costs. ; )

    That top pose is ESPECIALLY painful to maintain at speed…

    Clearly, she’s not subscribing to the “dress for the crash, not for the ride” philosophy.

    Does she have semen on her stomach?
