The GEICO Caveman: ‘I Don’t Have GEICO Insurance’

Talk about biting the hand that feeds him!

Since 2004, John Lehr has played the caveman in those wildly popular GEICO Insurance commercials.

But when it comes to cover- age for his own ride, he shops elsewhere.

Interviewed on The Humper Lust Show, the 43-year-old actor reveals his true feelings for the $9 billion insurance giant, which is owned by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway holding company.

“When I told my friends I was going to be interviewing you, every single one of them looked at me with a totally hesitant glance and said, ‘You better not be a p – – – -. You’d better tell him how much you hated those commercials,’” says host Brian Humphries.

“Well, listen, I’m glad they were such a huge success and that everybody liked them,” replies John, who also stars in the TBS sitcom 10 Items or Less.

“But to be honest, it was just a gig for me, and it’s a fun thing to do,” he continues.

“But, ah, put it this way: I don’t have GEICO insurance.”
