The single worst idea ever!

ABC is going to do a sitcom based on the Gieco Insurance "caveman" commercials. Story here.

It ranks right up there with sublimeanal sprite commercials as far as stench goes.

they should give that Gieco lizard his own show

That would be good. So would Sasquatch from the Messing with Sasquatch commercials for the Beef Jerky.

I always thought the "Where's the Beef?" lady should have had her own show.

I read that the pilot was just God-awful. Horrible.

Remember that talking baby? Was it named Bob? That was one commercial character got eventually got his own show, though short-lived.

I saw that talking baby doing spots for Quizno's lately.

I just can't see this working. The best Geico ads with the cavemen are the first one ("I'll take the roast duck with mango salsa") because of the novelty ... and the one on the moving walkway at the airport because HE DOESN'T SAY A WORD.

This has disaster written all over it.

Oh I'd much rather see a movie with the gekko. The cavemen aren't funny other than the satire of making fun of our own ridiculous society. This concept is like Saturday Night Live when they make movies based on their characters. They're good for 3 minutes, not 90!

Has Jim been taken by aliens?

stan said...

No, cavemen.
