I’ve Begun to Hate GEICO

I write that title hoping it gets noticed by someone, considering GEICO has such a huge presence in Macon.

Let me put it to you this way — the Caveman ads are the crappiest commercials on TV. They are worse than the “Head On

    I’ll agree that some of the caveman commercials have gotten out of control. But I must admit that the one where he’s on the moving walkway and goes by the advertisement, then disappears off screen, before walking back on-screen, is genius. I think it’s that awkward elevator music coupled with how he walks back on screen. Good stuff.

    And the ads with the Gecko were always pretty cool.

    Mostly though, I echo Pye’s retort.

    I hate all the feminine hygiene ads and the ads about male enhancement.

    My favorite all time ads were the “I can’t believe I ate the whole thing ” ad from the 70s.

    I do not like the Geico ads. At first they were sort of cute, but after a while they begin wearing on your nerves.

    One can say the same about you.

    Haha.

    I’m kidding. You left yourself wide open to that one.

    I AGREE. I turn my channel the minute one of those dumb “cavemen” ads appear. There is something that is just disgusting about them.

    Get a tivo or similar product like microsoft’s media center. I haven’t seen commercials in a long time, unless something (someone) interesting appears while I am hitting the 30 second advance button.

    I went the entire campaign season seeing only a handful of political ads, mostly at other people’s houses or on UTube.

    So you think I am cute, Jason? Just kidding.

    I love a sense of humor.

    I wish there were real commercials like the ones that appeared on the old SNL show .

    What commercials are your all time favorites?

    Just curious.

    Erick, are you kidding me??? Have you tried watching an NFL game lately? Let me give you a hint:
    From the east coast
    To the west coast
    Down the Dixie Highway
    Back home
    This is ouuuuuuuur country

    This song/commercial is played after every commercial break….Terrible song, terrible auto company, from a sinnger who once preached against the establishment but who has now sold out.

    I love the caveman commercials. They’re better than those anoying-ass Gecko ads and a hell of a lot better than any Phizer/pharmaceutical add ever dreamt of being.

    I’m suprised no one mentioned Head On. Apply directly to the forehead.

    I do, however, like the commercials where they make fun of their own crappy commercials using crappy actors.

    “Head On. Apply directly to the forehead. Your ads suck but your product is so amazing!”

    I like Royksopp a great deal so I quite like the latest Geico commercial (its the background music for the airport).

    I HATE the caveman commericials with every ounce of bubbling black wretch that I can muster. I want to shoot the TV every time one comes on. I hate the actor that plays the caveman. I hate the writer who came up with the caveman. I would rather toss the sald of the lizard than ever see anoth god dam caveman commercial. I HATE THE CAVEMAN.

    I hate that “this is our country” song, and commercial too. I would rather have the head on jingle on repeat in an ipod welded to my head than listen to that swine crap anymore.
