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..

Thanks very much! I guess the ad is aimed at a demographic that's way different from mine!

Two nights ago...while watching back-to-back shows....we counted it 11 times in 3 hours. We mute the audio when it comes on now. EWE indeed.

I hope you guys don't mind a mirror image, so what ad(s) do you like?

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.

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.....:D
