Disney frog getting leg up from Geico gecko

The Martin Agency has cobbled together a cute Geico tie in with Disney's new movie The Princess and the Frog. In the spot, the frog prince Skypes the gecko to ask for advice about un-frogging himself and instead learns how he can save hundreds by switching to Geico. There doesn't seem to be anything to the tie-in beyond this one spot. And the only connection seems to be that the lizard and the frog are both small, talking, green things (OK, the frog's more of a sandy beige) with adorable accents. But who cares how they relate? Little greenish/beige spokescreatures are cute.
