OK, so this has been othering me for a long time, and I'm fed up. Can someone PLEASE tell me why the Geico gekko suddenly has a cockney accent? What happened? Is it simply that they fired the other actor or is it supposed to be a different gekko altogether? At first I thought that he was an imposter and was going to try to take over, but it seems that he's just the Geico gekko... Am I the only one that is bothered by this?
