The insurance company pokes fun at pre-roll ads with its latest digital campaign

Ads about ads: Geico on Monday rolled out a set of 10 digital ads that play off viewers' impatience with pre-roll advertising.

The "Unskippable" campaign created by The Martin Agency, comprises a series of short commentaries on the wait for a pre-roll spot to end.

While most installments are 15 seconds in length, Geico also rolled out a long-playing version of its "Family" spot that extends a freeze frame to ridiculous lengths.
