Geico "Amusement Park" Commercial

Anyone seen this? I though it was kinda funny. More entertaining than a talking gecko, at least.

The amusement park rises bold and are huddled on the beach in a mist

If I'd seen this commercial when I was a kid, I totally would've gone out and made my own cardboard box tunnel with a wagon and garden hose reel. Brilliant.

The background music is an old recording of the Wurlitzer Style 165 band organ that once was on both the Lincoln Park and Griffith Park Carousels in Los Angeles. The organ was not included in the sale of the Griffith Park machine back in the 1980's (it was replaced with a Stinson Model 87) and is currently in a private collection and for sale at this time.

I'm simultaneously impressed, disturbed, and not at all surprised that someone would know that.

What can I say? It's the business that I was in for thirty some years, I've known the previous two owners and the present owners. The reel to reel recordings ,LP's plus a cassette of that organ show up on eBay once and a while.
