There's a ringer in GEICO's "Maxwell and Ted Have Hail Damage" commercial
I only noticed it the fifth or sixth time I saw it, always on ESPN or the NFL Network.
Long story short: both Maxwell the GEICO pig and hapless Ted suffer hail damage to their cars.
While Ted, not insured by GEICO, spends endless amounts of time trying — and failing — to reach his [other] insurance company, with his blond babe girlfriend quietly watching and sympathizing in the background, Maxwell's is repaired in a porcine zeptosecond, so efficiently that Ted's girlfriend is next seen on the back of Maxwell's jet ski as they frolic in the surf.
Just one problem: the woman riding behind Maxwell as they bounce along the waves is not — of this I am 99% certain — the same woman who appears with Ted in the earlier part of the commercial.
Watch for yourself and see what you think.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference There's a ringer in GEICO's "Maxwell and Ted Have Hail Damage" commercial:
Exact same woman in driveway and on jet ski.
Woman in drive, facing camera straight-on, has oval-shaped face. She very briefly tilts her head back, just enough to eliminate the projection of the chin as viewed from the front, and also just enough to straighten out the visusal line from L to R jaw angles, making her appear more square-jawed than she in fact is. (This happens very quickly in the ad.)
Woman on jet ski has same oval face, same nose, same length hair, probably same teeth (heh).
It is the same woman.

That's definitely not the same pig. Eye's are narrower. Ears a little higher.

I'm with Gina. I opened 2 tabs, froze the first at 13, the second at 22 (just as the camera pans out from the pig). Looks to me to be the same exact chin. Lighting, facial expression can play tricks on the eye. Besides, why would they pay 2 actresses when they can pay one? Those residuals add up fast.

Gal in drive has a square structured face whereas the gal on the jet ski has an oval face. It is not the same person.

Wait...is this a ploy to have us replay the video over and over again?

Looks the same to me, just has her hair pulled back.
