This geiko commercial is the most nonsensical of any I've seen. I wish I had geiko insurance so I could cancel it.
The gecko, trying to put a tea bag into his cup, looses it to a gust of wind and it ends up in the harbor. He then says "I guess this party is over". To which party does he refer, the scene is an outdoor cafe, not a party? And, the party was not over by the symbolic act of dumping the tea, the party in fact just began.
