Holy crap... just holy crap.

So you see the resemblance too?  Chief didn't until I mentioned it, was wondering if it was just me.

Heck yes, I see it, but only after you pointed it out. Other baseball fans in my household were equally struck by it. My wife wondered if Geico did it on purpose.

The commercial is pretty funny, too... "so gross...."

Okay, new favorite hate-on: The Target commercial with those acrobatic idiots wearing the barfy colored suits jumping out of a hot air balloon and leaping and bounding through town making everything look like crap.

Right now one of the ones that gets my blood boiling is that car commercial (audi?) where the people in the car are singing allong with the '80s Spandau Ballet song "True". Not sure if its because of the song or just the stupidity of the commercial.
 :asplode:
Also the VW commercial where the sales guy is giving directions during the test drive and makes the guy stop at a billboard for VW and says "I wonder where that came from". AAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGHH!

Scratch that.

All of the Google+ commercials.  You failed again, Google.  Give it up.

I don't even understand those.  Like seriously, a douche-bag cheetah and a muscled up rhino and retarded antelope or some crap.  BUY MIO!

Wut?

Yeah they've got a new one with a bunch of chick-animals...  a giraffe, a rhino, a camel, and a deer or something.  So stupid.

This much is true, all right.  Spandau Ballet is being used in a commercial just to annoy the heck out of every vertebrate.  It's an ad strategy which just makes me want to take a key to the finish of every one of those cars.  Unfortunately, I can't remember what the car is because I am so quick to flip away from that commercial.

I found out what it was - Chevy Malibu Eco.  The environmental hippie in me wants you to leave those cars alone, but everything else in me says RELEASE THE KRAKEN ON THOSE MOTHER freakERS

The Geico commercials get more and more moronic.  Now they have a campaign with people doing taste tests in a supermarket.  They're drinking Geico to see if they like it.

Yeah, I usually think they are at least kind of humorous, but the drinking one is so damn stupid.  Plus, if it is real people and it really is that horrible tasting, I'd be all like



to the douche guy serving it.
