First you have the salsa, then you have the seltzer.

Geico cavemen could star in TV series

It's official people - TV writers have reached the bottom of the barrel.

oh well

No it's not just you. I've thought the same thing since the first Geico gecko ad and through these caveman ads. Just don't get the "message" the advertisers are trying to make. Advertising is a tough world.....you either make it or bomb. Geico has bombed.

Geico Cavemen

I wouldn't normally post about commercials here, but these deserve it. In a time when most commercials are either so stupid they're offensive, insulting to one's intelligence, or so convoluted that you can't even figure out what the hell they're advertising, the Geico Cavemen commercials are a collective diamond in the rough. They are funny and insightful. The actors who play the cavemen are obviously gifted in terms of comedic timing.

For those who are unfamiliar....the premise is that a group of cavemen living in modern times are offended by Geico's tagline 'It's so easy a caveman could do it.' One ad features a Geico exec attempting to apologize to two cavemen over dinner in a fancy restaurant. Another features a caveman passing a Geico billboard in an airport with the offensive tagline on it and staring at it in disbelief before calling another cavemen via cell phone to share the news. There are a few that deal with one of the cavemen in therapy complaining about the 'existential meltdown' brought on by the offensive tagline. Yet another deals with one caveman who actually uses Geico, who is thought of as a disloyal traitor by the other cavemen. On and on and on.

Find them on YouTube.

Believe it or not, a sitcom spin-off is slated for ABC this fall. Probably a bad idea. But the commercials are great.

Appreciate them.

something I heard about these commercials was that the Ad agency that came up with them is a real small mom and pop agency located somewhere in the south. From what I heard they initially approached a real big ad agency (name escapes me right now) and pitched the idea but got turned down. Not sure what happened after that. Either they went directly to Geico with the idea and became their Ad agency or what.. I know the name of the Ad Agency is The Martin Agency. Either way they are big time now..

Does the same agency do all their spots? I agree the cavemen are funny, and though he's become tedious at this point I initially liked the gecko also. They also had a spot where 2 squirrels ran out and caused a car to swerve, and then started hi-fiving each other, that one always cracked me up.
