Excellent headline.
 
2005-10-11 09:23:51 AM  
This Geico stuff has been run into the ground. It's almost as bad as the "No--but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night" crap.

As of right now, I'm starting an online petition to kill and cook the Geico lizard. Will report back with the URL.

Christ, it has gotten so bad, they are hiring those infomercial hacks to do commercials.

I gotta admit, I enjoy their cavemen adds.

BTW, here in CT we've been assailed by Geico ads that exclaim that Connecticut is the wealthiest state in the nation. Do any other states get that ad (obviously with their own state name replacing Connecticut). And what are they basing that on? Gross value, or per capita?

Those are hilarious. And don't get me wrong, their ads are clever, but they're on so often, the catchphrases are getting old.

I like the Speed Racer ads. The rest are getting pretty bad.

Excellent headline! (Albeit one that won't make any sense at all in 10 years, let alone in 5000 years when some Indiana Jones type digs up Fark.)

They should hire Ron Popeil.

It looks like your online petition will probably fail, but there's some good news...

That's not possible. Since Noah rounded up all the animals and there is no evolution, there is no such thing as a newly discovered species of anything.
 
2005-10-11 11:20:45 AM  
...I'm not too happy about this caveman talk either.
 
2005-10-11 11:33:20 AM  
Who the hell came up with those freaking cavemen commercials? They need to freaking die.

Agreed. Incredibly stupid.

Though I did get a kick out of the Geico commercial with the guitar player Esteban.

Are you suggesting that there was no room on the ark for this lizard?

Uberchief
wow you got that up fast.
 
2005-10-11 11:36:53 AM  
Worthless without pics.
 
2005-10-11 11:37:20 AM  
The Geico ads are brilliant. I'll get behind any company that uses Esteban! as a spokeman.

Also, the reality show spoof with the tiny house was hi-larious.
 
2005-10-11 11:38:08 AM  
I thought I had discovered a new species once, but it was just a grain of rice.

/ - What's the point of this story,dad?
//- I like stories.
 
2005-10-11 11:38:18 AM  
I hearby name this lizard....!!!!!!!

STEVE!!!!!

/bored.
 
2005-10-11 11:39:28 AM  
I am waiting for Geico to use a 65 year old dried up Anna Nicole.

You know its coming down the pike.



/pike, the deadly killer of the Great Lakes~!

Cavemen are soooo out-dated.
 
2005-10-11 11:44:29 AM  


I am the Lizard Queen!

Down with GEICO!
Uberchief - I signed your petition. I worked for GEICO for 3 years. They suck, all the way around. They treat their employees like dirt. They don't treat their insureds much better. If there is ever an accident, they'll try and screw you as much as possible, w/o the vaseline.

Oh, and if this is news to anyone, the gecko is gay. He has a limp wrist and talks with a fake English accent. Therefore - GAY!

If you have insurance with this company, switch. I would recommend American Family or just about any other company.

/still licensed in 14 states
//doesn't sell insurance at all
///hates the damn gecko
////doesn't hate gay people
/////has family members that are gay
//////thinks slashes suck too
 
2005-10-11 11:45:59 AM  
I kinda like the Geico ad with the spoof of reality tv (Tiny House). Cracks me up! "You Gotta Be Kidding"!! Pure gold!
 
2005-10-11 11:46:52 AM  
No it's an evolved lizard!!
Now it must find another evolved lizard to mate with to make more.

//Just as many inconsistencies in Evolution as you all biatch about with Christianity.

The revolution has begun.

So you hate gays *and* slashes?

Crikey! She's a lil' rippah!"
 
2005-10-11 11:52:14 AM  
The tiny house commericial was about the only one I liked. The cats beating up the lizard wasn't bad. The one with the girl in the car was OK. The rest sucked. Whoever came up with the cavemen ones needs some time with a plunger and the NYPD.
 
2005-10-11 11:54:28 AM  
i liked the Tiny House commerical.
 
2005-10-11 11:58:50 AM  
I knew Surface was preparing us for something...
 
2005-10-11 11:59:01 AM  
Yes, but did he stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night?

There wouldn't have been room on the Ark for *my* lizard.

/ziiiiiiiiiiip

Ok so a new species of lizard has been discoverd - one that has never been documented before, so almost nobody on earth knows what it looks like. Why the fark would you not include a picture in your article that announces the discovery to the public for the first time?!?
 
2005-10-11 12:02:07 PM  
I work for Geico...in their advertising department.

So I am really getting a kick out of most of these replies.

Some of you guys are very good at making it sound like you know what you are talking about.

But trust me.... You don't.

I think you just want to make yourself sound smart, when in reality you dont know what you are talking about.

This is how bad info gets passed around.

If you dont know about the topic....Dont make yourself sound like you do.

Cuz some Farkers belive anything they hear.

The lizard was underage and you know our obscenity laws....

2 total signatures. That petition's off to a pretty slow start!

i didnt know lizards are such great swimers-and for 40 days n nights? no wonder there almost endangered little evolved things.

on another note-trust a christian to not believe in evolution, the are still focus on something over 2000 years old. timet hey evolved me thinks...

i borrow from the lyrics of Ed from the band Live:

"heard a lot of talk about this jesus...a man of love ,a man of strength. BUt what aman was 2000 years ago means nothing at all to me today. He could of been talking about my higher self, but he only lives inside of prayer. so what he was may have been bueatyfull,but the pain is right now and right here... let it go..."

Dr. Moonlight: I work for Geico...in their advertising department.

The next annoying cliche.....
oh no wait, it already is.

I get this text message from a friend the other day and at first all I could read was this half: "Someone you used to mess with has AIDS," so this gives me a mild case of myocaridal infarction and I scroll down to the rest of the text that reads: "but it's cool, I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching to GEICO." I know this has nothing to do with the thread or the story, but when I read the headline it was the first thing I thought of and thought I'd share the wealth.

"bueatyfull" - heh.
 
2005-10-11 12:19:27 PM  
Someone beat me to the "Surface" comment.
Geico isn't available in MA... and yet we still get beat over the head with the commerials (don't bother explaining about cross-state TV markets). Besides, the whole MA state car insurance system is farked.
 
2005-10-11 12:19:29 PM  
You guys complaining about the Geico ads...

Well you must not be Gellin'

excuse me, are those bugle boy jeans you are wearing?
