Ermey has also been in commercials, including one for GEICO Insurance, which you can revisit at the beginning of the video below.
In December 2010. Ermey was at a benefit for Toys4Tots and the USO, where he ripped into Obama (around the 2:50 mark in the video above).
Now, we have confirmation — from the man himself — that, just as we’d suspected, that was the reason why GEICO fired Ermey.
