The man whose common-sense approach to life and investing has made him a much respected financial adviser is featured prominently singing in a Geico commercial.
If the boss wants to sing. The boss sings.
Wearing an outfit much like those favored by Axl Rose of the band Guns N' Roses, Buffett's gentle baritone is audible in a video of the commercial on YouTube.
Will the third richest man in the world replace the much-loved Geico gecko as the pitchman who can carry a tune? Not likely. A costumed Gecko also gets some frame time in the commercial.
Buffett bought the outstanding Geico stock in 1996 to make the firm a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway.
