Scotus BS: Why is the Geico Gekko a Brit? (205* d) RE: BS: Why is the Geico Gekko a Brit? 06 Feb 06


Actually, I'd say that the voice is speaking 'estuary English' which is the 'laddish' semi-cockney accent affected by young guys who jumped into the financial services industry during the height of the Thatcher 'me first' era of the 1980s. That would explain the connection between the accent and an insurance company IMHO!
