Geico opens football season with classic rock anthem

Insurer fronts Swedish rockers in latest irreverent ad

Do you know Europe? The band, not the continent — maybe not, but you do probably know the song "Final Countdown."

It's part of Geico's continuing "It's What You Do" series featuring golf annoucers and Dora the explorer among others —  this time playing the classic sports anthem in an office breakroom.

Like a spot that featured musicians Salt-N-Pepa, the band itself makes an appearance.

The ad by long time partner The Martin Agency kicked off during the pre-show of the first game of NFL season.
