Geico commercials have now worn very thin with me, as have the Progressive ones.
Question: there's an annoying repeat sound- could be a synth or human voice- that sorta "beeps" steadily while the actors are jumping from a plane and recording it. Dunno what the ad is for, which makes it fail on some level, but what is the source and purpose of those "beeps"?
That is an ad for HTC Phones and that song that is beeping is..

Me, the Old Spice one where the guy gets an extra dose of fairy dust (no he doesn't turn gay) Quite the opposite, with t.i.c. beautiful women in skimpy clothes cheering him on, fast cars, and manly manliness.

But I do hate insurance companies.

I love Maxwell.
The first one was quite funny. Now they are just stupid.

Sagaciously eschew obfuscating sesquipedalianisms.
Evil is charming and beautiful. It makes you doubt yourself. It asks for one small compromise after another until it whittles you down, and it functions best when no one believes in it.--from Joan of Arcadia

TIVO has made me happy since I can skip commercials. Oddly, I now have much less tolerance for them than I had prior to getting TIVO. The squealing pig, the Verizon crying commercial, etc. Just reminders of why I love TIVO, and would be really hard pressed to go back. The concept of non-skipable content scares me!
Yes, indeed. I would have been hard-pressed to have not gotten another TiVo when it came time to upgrade to HD. But there weren't any available! Now I'd be hard pressed to leave DIRECTV®'s DVRs, but if someone wants to throw one my way, I'd be willing to experiment.....
