When we stroll up to buy our meats and cheeses at the grocery store we all dread the fact that we have to pull a number and wait in line. However, for former Cincinnati Bengals running back Ickey Woods, it’s like waiting for a lottery number to be called.
In the most recent Geico commercial to hit the airwaves the company proves that Ickey Woods will celebrate anything. Although he’s standing in line and having to wait for his meats and cheeses at the grocery store, when his number is called he yells, “That’s me!” and begins to perform “The Ickey Shuffle” celebration dance right in the isle.
It’s a fun commercial, and allows a new generation to witness the famous “Ickey Shuffle” that was a regular occurrence from 1988 to 1991 in Cincinnati. Especially during the 1988 season in which he powered his way to 1,066 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns during his rookie season. Woods is a fun player, and it’s clear to see that he’s the same guy we remember from the early 90’s.
