Tickled

Most Geico commercials annoy me, in that almost-but-not-quite-funny way that Taco Bell seems to have perfected. But I have to say, I find the Peter Graves ad quite charming.

I also like the one with the movie trailer voiceover guy.


Which in turn reminds me - this may very well be the greatest movie trailer of all time, provided as a public service for those of you who haven't seen it already:


(I wonder how many of these guys there are...)

I like the GEICO advertisements I've seen on TV. Those you linked to were quite entertaining. :)

I think Peter Graves learned too late that man is a feeling creature, and because of it, the greatest in the Universe.

Hehe. I saw the one with lil Richard that I found funny, in a silly sort of way.

The other Geico "real people" ads don't do anything at all for me, and are actually kinda creepy and off-putting.

But there's just something about a dead-serious Peter Graves talking about putting on tangerine lip gloss...
