Yesterday I saw a commercial that was the perfect blend of the original Speed Racer cartoon and the standard GEICO commercial. It looks like the original animation that was tweaked to synch it with the new script or somebody managed a flawless mimic of the Speed Racer look and feel.

Has anybody else seen it?

Yeah. It's hilarious. The timing is pure Williams Street, with the deliberately awkward pause at the end perfectly paced. I wonder if the most wonky shots (such as the odd angle of the car on the ground) were chosen from original SPEED RACER animation, or if existing animation was messed up a little to make it funnier.
