Commercials

I love the Geico Caveman commercials. They make me laugh out loud, especially the airport/moving sidewalk one. I just love his expression and disgust! Here it is with a combo of the next installment if you haven't yet seen it.



I also think the "Easy Button" was a great advertising idea, not that this is another favorite commercial but it was just a great idea. It was made to look even greater when Office Depot put out their brilliant "Hand" advertisement. If you have no idea what I am talking about then let me do a quick overview:

Staples: Has an easy button, run out of ink, need to find something, just click the easy button and Voila! It's taken care of. Wouldn't it be nice if we had an easy button? My Christmas decorations would be down and back in storage but that's besides the point. Don't judge me.

Office Depot: Has a hand in a box. Need ink? The hand in the box will point the way. Just put the box in your cart and you are off. It's a hand in a box. A creepy hand, in a box, that does nothing but point and give a thumbs up. I don't know about you but if I am already there in Office Depot, I'm pretty sure I can find the ink on my own, heck I would probably feel comfortable enough to ask an employee if I were really lost. But carry around a hand in a box?

Someone needs to be fired.

That hand in the box creeps me right out. I have to change the channel if it comes on.

The one with the jumping/swimming scissors also gives me the heeby jeebys. I get visions of scissors chasing me down the street...EEK!! It's a credit card company but I can't remember which one.
