Default Most annoying insurance advertisements

I thought nothing could surpass the Gieco "Caveman" insurance ads as the most mindless, madening pap on the tube, but now they have competition:

#1: Progressive Insurance: Passive/agressive chubby girl with a know-it-all attitude. Makes me want to puke. Seldom do I want to punch women, but in this case...

#2: Gieco/Money with Eyeballs: Ohhh, jeez. Make it stop. Do people actually find this amusing? Fantasize about powdering the eyeball/money thing with 12ga XXX Buck. No sir, don't like it.

#2A: Gieco Lizard: Resurrected after the Caveman melt-down, I just don't get it. Where's the remote! Quick!

#3: Pres. David Palmer/Allstate: Mildly annoying. He could do a good Darth Vader with that voice. Kind of makes me sleepy, which is OK.

#4: Gieco/Cavemen on Harleys: They just won't stop running this one. Makes me want to throw a brick through the tube. Hopefully the tape will melt, and all the copies will disintergrate. And that damn slogan/song wakes me up at 3am, stuck in my head. Noooo!

This is just the tip of the iceberg, as I'm sure at this moment, in some smoky room on Wilshire Blvd. ad men are thinking up even more inane crap to foist on us. What's next? Talking fish? Mimes? Walrus Dad? Hitler?

Where are my pills....

You know, that's a sore subject with me too. In fact my disgust exists on a number of levels....

1. The dildonic morons that get paid to think up this tripe, for example the eyeball money, the FedEx one where the guy spits coffee all over the counter guy, the Quaker oats "go humans" while some Chi-Mo freak in a hat peeks from the corner..the "learn a language" one where the middle aged lady describes some fantasy teacher, in her home teaching her f*ckin' swahili or something.....(probably wants it up the ol' nethersump if ya' know what I mean).. the list goes on, absolute pap.

2. the chinless wonders who sit on the boards of these companies and actually think this effluvia is a good way to represent their company..I don't know which one is worse to be honest. if I was some exec and I found out my marketing dept had approved some of this vomit I'd fire the gad'dam* lot of them


3. Then you get the old boner chokers like Billy Mayes and Vince the carni or that English d*ckweed who goes on about what your family name means........My names "Taylor" alright? ...It ain't too gad'dam* hard to figure out what my ancestors did for a living.....

It's enough to make a dog puke I'll tell ya'

Hey, I liked the Geico caveman campaign. Found it funnier than most of the programs on TV.

Plus, it gave me something to heckle at caveman-looking hockey players - "Hey, Lamchuk, try the roast duck with the mango salsa!" Best thing about AHL games is cheap seats near the bench...

There's this really irritating insurance guy on motorcycle Online. Always plugging his business there. What a wanker.

What does a "Creech" do?

If Todd McFarlane's comic has any meaning, it's a Goon-Machine Killer-dude that smashes people into raspberry slushies with its bare fists...........

As it happens a creech is a stable, most likely a stable hand or groom.....

An obnoxiously gay couple ***** slapping each other while Flo prompts them on in a Progressive insurance company ad. You didn't mention that one.

Billy Mays just go hosed down by a skunk hawking order remover! I swear!

Oh, you mean the watch episode...yes, horible. For some reason I'm too stunned or horrified to change the channel, just sit there in morbid fascination.

It's almost as bad as the "Buddy Holley Story" showing on the tube now...I can't seem....to...change...it....gasp choke...Gary Busey...gag...chough...

I wish my kid was old enough to get the laugh out of that one without me having to try an 'splain it.

We're going to auto-cross the Mini tomorrow. He's insane with excitement...walking around the house with my old Shoei on while pretending to drift.
