The latest Geico commercial in the insurance company’s endless parade of ads features Salt-N-Pepa and their classic hit “Push It” to get some laughs. Watch the spot below.
This isn’t the first Geico commercial to feature a famous musician — in one clip, poker with Kenny Rogers turns out to be disastrous because the country singer won’t stop humming his classic hit “The Gambler.” While Kenny Rogers annoys his fellow gamblers, Salt-N-Pepa provide personal encouragement to strangers engaged in a wide variety of activities. Rocking ’80s-appropriate jackets, the trio’s members — Cheryl James, Sandra Denton and Deidra Roper — help people open doors and operate elevators.
Salt-N-Pepa may be undergoing a small revival. Sandra ‘Pepa’ Denton appeared in the Syfy channel hit Sharknado 2, and earlier this year, rapper Future interoplated “Push It” on his sinister single “Move That Dope” with Pharrell and Pusha T. That song peaked at No. 11 on the Hot Hip-Hop/R&B Chart. Listen for the whispered “push it” in that song below.
