Looney TV: Would you buy insurance from this guy? (2010)

In 2010, GEICO launched its current "Isn't it obvious?" ad campaign, but got into a wee bit of hot water by co-opting the use of Elmer Fudd without obtaining permission from Warner Bros.. Now, you'd think a major insurance company would have done due diligence, or at the very least had their advertising reps do that, to secure a license.

Here's Elmer (voiced by Billy West), dealing with a director who has no tolerance for Fudd's speech issues. Uploaded by JosephMaggio to YouTube:
