My musician friends inform me that Iggy Pop was pretty much the Gecko in the UK doing ads for SwiftCover. I have found that there is very little in the World more entertaining than Iggy. Image

Is the GEICO caveman related to Phil Hartman's Keyrock, the Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer?

I find most all GEICO ads unfunny. However, I did get a kick out of the Caveman at first, a clever parody on the nascent trend toward political correctness. The squirrels were pretty good, too.

Progressive ads with Flo and Jamie merely creep me out.

Allstate's Mayhem spots are hilarious! :lol The latest bunch show Mayhem's evil side...fantastic! :twisted:

Okay, I'm consistently enjoying this GEICO ad. :lol:

What I would like to see: The Caveman catching the Gecko and putting him on a plate, like he is going to have lunch. I would like to hear what the Gecko is going to say.

You've probably noticed that GEICO recently brought back the Caveman. In one spot he bemoans that he's being depicted as a washed-up has-been in a GEICO documentary while the Gecko is the current star. I don't know how much mileage they'll get out of this "competition", but...

Well prophesized, Paul! :blink :razz Hopefully we'll see a continuation...or maybe it's better if we don't.

There was also one with the Caveman with his 'normal' wife.

Yes, the new Caveman campaign includes the "normal" wife, including the spot to which I referred.
