    Here I thought you meant the Warmoth Gecko and I was thinking "que problema? It's a nice looking, easily customizable bass..."
     
  6. Yeah, the gecko's not so cute anymore.

    Now the cave man on the other hand...that most recent one where he's playing Scrabble, "Brian, your words are hurtful..." still very funny to me.

    Expect serial annoyances like these until you have the realization that it's time to lose the TV for good.

    Your life will change for the better.

    Now, now. TV is not the evil beast people like to make it out to be. Maybe your life is better without a TV, but not everyone may have the same experience.

    Like anything else, moderation and good judgement are needed.

    The cavemen are a good pitch because they make fun of ourselves. The gecko is just so 'above it all' in snark. It was cute for a minute but like 'Flo', it's time is up.

    Tv ain't so bad.

    I don't mind the Gecko, but I still prefer Flo.

    Actually, some of the Allstate "Mayhem" commercials crack me up. I just saw the "Streaker" commercial for the first time yesterday and laughed myself silly. My wife thought it was pretty childish and she was absolutely right. But it was still freakin' hilarious! :D
     
  17. I don't like GEICO, but I like the gecko.

    The last time I saw the Geico Gecko was when the NHL Playoffs were on, so I can't say I'm sick of him... he's just not funny though.

    Maybe they should try another play on words .... like GuyCo... the theme song could be It's Raining Men and Ru Paul can be the spokesman. I'm sure that wouldn't suck at all.
