These commercials from Geico are not funny and it just reeks of desperation that they can't think of anything actually funny.

Look at the first comment under the video. it says "Best Geico commercial of all time" and it got 27 likes!!!

How come these people can't see what we all see? That these commercials are corny for simple minds. Why do so many people actually think this stuff is actually funny? What's the difference between their brains and our brains on this forum?

lol can someone please explain?

Some people are amused by the simplest of things. That's all.

My dad likes this commercial, which bewilders me, cause I don't usually see him as an idiot! He's not one!

What a stupid commercial, made even worse by having the Happy Hipster Douchebag Duo in it. Why, oh why, couldn't the camel have spit on them?

Geico commercials have been awful since the beginning of time but this one is pretty funny IMO.

Let me see, if I recall right, the last time I remember anyone laughing at a "hump day" joke was all the way back in Junior High.

The BEST one was 'Dragula the 'Candy Striper', working at the Blood Bank'.

I (briefly) knew a girl who would post hump day garbage on her facebook every week. The first time she did it, i knew i wasn't going to know her for very long.

Ladies, ever wonder why some guys hit it and quit it? It's because you say "hump day."

That camel's CGI face bugs the sh*t out of me. Especially when he makes that stupid face right before the girl answers him about hump day. WTF does this camel even DO at the office besides wander and annoy the sh*t out of everyone?

Now, why couldn't they tie this in with the office "couple"  going at it inside a cubicle?
 
That would be my idea of "hump day".

LOL I'm picturing them both humping away, shouting in unison to the people who pass by the cubicle, "Hey, guess what day it is?  Guess what day?"  LOL

BDC - "Bring the Douchebags to a Close"  (As in the happy douchebag duo and their commercials)

Unfortunately that's only wishful thinking Confused

The real humor in this commercial is on a more meta level. The way everybody in the commercial reacts to the camel and his humpday routine is how most people in real life are starting to view "funny" commercials. Sure it may have actually been funny the first couple of times but after a while everybody just gets tired of it. It makes people start to hate you. Now sure it might get you attention but here's the problem, the any attention is good attention theory is the same theory class clowns and your average two year old operate on. The class clown gets turned down when he asks out dates and the 2 year old gets paddled and has to sit in the corner. They got attention alright but not the good kind.

I like this commercial, but only because I have a friend who reminds me of the camel. BTW the name of the company in the background is BDC I think. Big Dumb Camel? WHOOT WHOOOT!

Somebody needs to sew its lips to its tallywhacker and lock it in a dark closet until the room starts to reek like a dead mouse (or a few thousand of the little fvckers) behind the wall.
