Allman Brothers Fans Upset With Geico Over Tasteless Motorcycle Ad

Andrew Celani --

A new Geico ad featuring the classic rock hit “Midnight Rider” is drawing the ire of Allman Brothers fans from all over.

The new 30-second spot titled “Money Man” is a commercial about Geico’s motorcycle insurance set to the tune of the 1970 Allman Brothers hit. And since founding members Duane Allman and Berry Oakley both perished in motorcycle accidents, (in the same town just three blocks and 1 year apart, no less) the commercial has not been well received.

Here’s some of the backlash I’ve seen on Twitter:
