Valve and Geico team up on Portal-themed insurance ads

Geico is a US-based insurance company best known for its London gecko mascot. Valve is a US-based video game company that makes a pair of puzzle games starring a deranged, vicious AI. Have you ever wondered what would happen if the two of them got together? Of course you don’t, because why would they, right?

Well, they did. Earlier this month, Geico released a new ad called “Gecko Access Portal,” and that’s exactly what it’s all about: Gecko somehow got into the Aperture Science lab, and he’s asking for help to get out of it – from GlaDOS. Of course, the evil machine isn’t willing to help, and things will soon go awry in a way that anyone who’s played Portal will be familiar — but not before saving money!
