Did GEICO Consider Irony in Song Choice

The insurance company GEICO has been aggressively courting motorcycle riders.  Their latest campaign, Motorcycle Money Man, uses the song,  Midnight Rider  by the Allman Brothers.

The irony that an insurance company would choose a song from an artist who was killed in a motorcycle wreck to promote motorcycle insurance was not lost on many motorcycle forums and websites.

What do you think?  Should GEICO have used another song?  Tell us in the poll below. Video below the poll
