Geico’s New Cavemen

Geico’s latest spots for car insurance use a new but familiar group of cavemen: The Flintstones. Brandweek has more details about the campaign.

    *laughing hysterically*

    That’s probably one of the BEST Geico commercials EVER!! Better than the lizard and those OTHER cavemen, who have their own series now…(which won’t last more than a week)

    Scroll the bottom of the You-Tube pane and select the next Flintstones Geico spot titled, “Not For Air”. Worth a look.

    Geico’s been making funny commercials since forever. But I love how every few months, they change the theme of the commercials.

    This reminded me of one of my favorite ” Harvey Birdman ” episodes.
    The one where they spoofed the Sopranos using Fred as Tony, etc.
    Funny stuff.

    Geico is very good at making clever advertisements. This new one just continues the trend.

    Technically that was an Adult Swim joke I saw a year or so ago (making fun of outtakes I assume).

    I’ve seen the Geico ad early last week and thought it was OK, but usually I don’t for watching ads much anymore. It sorta borrows from the type of ads they’ve done in the past using a parody of shows but stick in the Geico plug near the end. The only thing different here I thought was the moment of silence before the Geico logo shows up, but that’s about it.

    Yes, yes, YES! Liked to died when I caught it on the tube!!

    I just hope no one finds it “racist,” “sexist” or anything else stupid like that!

    It’s so great the first time you see it because you can’t imagine where the hell it is going. I thought it was an ad for Boomerang initially.

    Between the Geico ads and the Jack in the Box campaign I have no need for ‘real’ TV at all. Nice job.

    I’m sorry, but i hate Geico commercials with a passion. They seem so stupid, and redundant to me. I can never understand their appeal, or popularity. Maybe i’m in the minority, here.
