I miss him. Was funnier than the British Gecko.

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

Guys, that has nothing to do with my favorite caveman.

If you like ANY car insurance commercial, may you spend eternity with he-who-recites-death-days-and-hates-America as your cellmate.

It's not about the damn product. Ffs.
It's about the humour.

The Caveman could have been in any commercial and I would find it funny.

No. They suck. All car insurance commercials suck. They make Bob & Tom seem hilarious.

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:
