    I like the one that pretends to be about hair loss. You really do think it's a serious commmercial until the guy says he saved money on his car insurance.

    I like the one where the duck keeps trying to say "AFLAC" but no one can hear him.

    Full disclosure, I'm a certified Fender technician working in a music store that carries Fender, Yamaha, and Ibanez products among others.
    I like the one where the gecko and the stuffed-suit guy go talk to the lady with all the cats--you see the gecko slowly back away from the slowly-advancing felines, and in the next shot you notice he's got his arm in a sling. Classic :)

    None simply out of my hatred for Geico.

    Some facts:

    Geico invested heavily into Laser Tech, the leading traffic LIDAR manufacturer.

    It gives away radar and laser units to any police agency that wants to write more tickets.

    Geico testified before legislatures that we don't need/deserve certain rights and has canceled policies of people who admitted to owning LEGAL radar detectors.

    Geico is a founding member of Insurance Institute for Highway Safety that among other things still claims we'd be better off if we kept 55, ignoring the 9th straight year of fatality rate drops.

    Other than that, the gecko is kinda cool in that roadster of his.

    I love that commercial. I would watch that show, and I hate reality TV shows.

    I like this one, but only for the song they play. I don't know why but it's kinda catchy.

    Definately the Tiny house one. I think it's funny when the dude says "You're so awesome" at the wedding, "This is kinda awesome" at the house, and then the wife says "This is definately not awesome" :)

    I'd like to see one where the utterly incompetent GEICO adjuster I had to deal with because of a recent accident swallows the gecko.

    What is this 'caveman' commercial like? I haven't seen that one.

    Heh.. OK. There are two of them:

    1) Shows a commercial being filmed and the spokesdude says, "Geico.com.. so simple, a caveman could use it." Crashing noise off camera.. the camera pans over and there's a caveman, a member of the crew, pointing at the guy and saying, "NOT... COOL!" And the spokesdude is like, "I didn't know you were there!" And the caveman storms off and the spokesdude says in a real low voice to someone, "I didn't know he was there."

    2) Starts on a TV screen in a nice-looking apartment. The Geico commercial is playing and the announcer says, "Geico.com.. so simple, a caveman could use it." Then you see a caveman sitting on a couch reading. Upon hearing the TV, he looks up and says to his caveman friend, "Did you hear that?" The other one says, "Unbelievable," and then the first guy says, "That is SO condescending." There's a third caveman in the background, playing the piano.
