Friggin' Geico commercials

    I thought the Cavemen thing was funny and even the gecko was tolerable, but why would Geico make the decision to bring back the campaign with NASCAR driver Mike Wallace's "nephew" for a second year? It was never funny to begin with.

    The kid's even got a Posh Spice hairdo this year.

    Who are the ad wizards who come up with this stuff?

    They'r recycling all the old, tired and totally not funny caveman spots as well. I almost threw something at the TV this morning

    The originals with the kid were real funny. The one with him at the garage isn't, at all.

    If you're bringing back something, how about the True Hollywood Story series?

    It's his third cousin, once removed.

    Hey, is Cavemen STILL on TV?

    If my insurance remains cheap because they don't spend a lot on new commercials, fine by me.

    I'm a fan of the Wallace commercials and the original cavemen ones.

    The biggest problem with the Warren (or is it Lauren) Wallace ads? It talks about how Mike Wallace is a "Busch Series" driver. The series changed names in the offseason from the Busch Series to the Nationwide Series. Personally I couldn't care less which rotating advertisement the series has gone to this year for its name, but it does create a bit of a flaw in the ad.

    Is it Warren Wallace or Lauren Wallace?
    And is Cavemen still on TV?

    It's Lauren. I have hero cards.

    And anyone that doesn't love the Lauren Wallace ads has no sense of humor. None.

    "It ends with me putting him in the wall."

    Saw the kid this past week. He's tiny as shit, and had a toothpick in his mouth for any photo. It was awesome. Easily the highlight for me.

    The old commercials were MUCH better than the one I saw last week. That one was awful.

    The "putting him in the wall" stuff is classic.
