The Geico Cavemen
Though actors Jeff Daniel Phillips, Ben Weber, John Lehr and Ben Wilson were entertaining as metrosexual Stone Agers, the premise of this series of ads was not. We were supposed to be amused by the idea of cavemen complaining about the way they were portrayed in a Geico commercial -- the way, say, the Mexican-Americans were offended by the Frito Bandito. 'Cause, you know, the only thing funnier than mocking minorities is mocking them for protesting when you mock them. The cavemen even starred in a blink-and-you-missed-it sitcom. If some genius does this with the Aflac duck, I'm restricting my viewing to The Weather Channel.
