OK, I gotta admit, I find these sorta funny. I don't know if they're showing them on TV yet or if they even will.

I saw the pottery class ad on some webpage embedded video I attempted to watch, then looked for it on YouTube.

Found it and the grocery store version...





I can see where, after about a thousand times they could start to become annoying, but for now, I kinda like them.

Maybe it's just something about commercial actors getting squashed...

Couple more...







They also have "extended versions" of these ads, where someone comes along and pulls back the big blue Geico wall, then steps back inside wherever it was that got crushed.

OK, it's already beginning to lose its appeal...

I think you found them all!!

I hate Geico. Every time one of their commercials comes on I feel like that 30 seconds of my life has been stolen from me.,

I don't hate them as far as insurance companies go, given that I hate the insurance industry in general.

But as for their commercials, the way I see it is, at last they're trying to be funny and entertaining. And though maybe some of their efforts might fall short of that goal, at least they aren't putting annoying, snarky yuppie douchebags in their ads like Liberty Mutual does, or low-brow clods like the ones in The General ads. Or that hip-hop, rap culture inspired, ethnically ambiguous and nauseating bobble head, Mini-Mo.

If a commercial tries to make me laugh by creating parodies of annoying or obnoxious stereotypes, I'll give them a pass if the results of their efforts aren't as funny as I'd like them to be.

JMHO.

I just picture their marketing budget and all of that money they could return to their policy holders if they weren't bothering me every 10 minutes.

True, they spend a lot on marketing, but as the old saying goes, it pays to advertise.

They might possibly be forced to charge even more if they didn't advertise, considering the business and associated revenue they'd lose.

But I still feel ya, bro!!!

Yes! Where would this website be without commercials?

The trend that I have seen over the past few years.

Other insurance companies increasing their commercial count.
Other companies thinking this is the way to go!

Results =  Mountains of commercials, each taking time away from the other.

The Health, Auto, Home and Life insurance companies hope to give you the absolute minimum for your claim. Here come the lawyers!  It's a f*cking scam from root one!!

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh no. These aren't funny they're idiotic! Now compare these ads to the brilliantly composed actually HILARIOUS ads from the late 90s these don't just cut it. Did you know these spots have a laughing dog and a grocery cart chasing a car? Go ahead, look it up! That's just a few of what's out there!

One good thing about TV-you could always turn it off
