  • OT: Best/Worst Insurance Ads

    Since they seem to be saturating during televised sporting events, here's my opinion:

    Best: Geico
    Worst: Liberty Mutual

    The Allstate mayhem ads had a good run. They're fading now.

    Flo from Progressive has never come close to making me laugh.

      Flo is definitely not funny. I'd put those ads up for contention as worst.

        LiMu Emu! and Doug.

        They had me with the 1972 Plymouth Duster.

        My three favs:



        Well at least I don't wear the same sport coat every week like you and Bruno.

          Ads for The General.
          They just sux
          John Erlichman, one of President Richard Nixon's closest aides, has admitted America's "War on Drugs" was a hoax designed to vilify and disrupt "the antiwar left and black people" when it was launched in 1971.

            That campaign is a the most annoying blatant attempt to copy a rival company with a "spokes-animal" in the history of advertising.

            But its so bad its good ... because the object of advertising is to make you remember the name of the product, and those commercials suck such an enormous dick that they've made me remember the fucking company.

              I was always a fan of this one.

                "So bad it's good" YES! At first I was so annoyed at these commercials because these seemed so mindless. Once they overplayed them, I started looking deeper into them.

                First commercial - The Emu shakes the paper and Doug takes it as a No, then he pukes up the coins and Doug takes it as "you can save a lot of money"

                Second commercial - After Doug explains LiMu's behavior; with a mouth full of sandwich says, "He'll figure it out"

                Third commercial - After his slow motion, full out sprint he tries to talk but is doubled over and winded. That's what happens in real life versus Hollywood would have had him talking normally.

                That being said, the new series of commercials aren't as deep and funny. They've jumped the shark.

                  Not what I meant ... I find nothing to see in any deep dive into that shit pile except to recognize that they suck so bad you remember the company ... which is advertising good ... not good good.

                    I do feel that way about the 'free phone football' commercials. I have to hit the mute button for those. I do remember that I can watch football on my phone for free. :-/
