    Warren or Loren? (GEICO commercial)
    You know the GEICO commercial with the little boy who talks about putting his cousin the NASCAR driver "in the wall?" I adore that commercial. Thing is, hubby and I are feuding over whether the kid says his name is "Warren" or "Loren."

    Anybody got the inside track on the character's name?!?

    I just got goofy enough to go looking for someone at GEICO who could tell me the answer. I got the phone number for the guy who's the racing contact for GEICO and he told me the character's name is Loren. Spelled L-O-R-E-N. So I guess I lose the bet with hubby. I was sure it was Warren.

    Apparently the kid has a burgeoning fan club. He's 13, in case anyone was wondering.

    I use the line "the story ends with me putting <insert current enemy here> in the wall" almost every day.

    Geico has some darn funny commercials.

    Just went to YouTube to see the commercials and it is listed as Warren there.

    I'm hard of hearing so I tried to read his lips, but couldn't tell. The commercials sure are cute though.

    Just a little follow up. I couldn't find the name on the official Mike Wallace site, but everything else that I am seeing is calling him Warren.

    Sheri, thanks for the research but -- I already verified that the character's name is Loren. (See my post #3.)
