    Cool HAPPIER THAN A WITCH IN A BROOM FACTORY!

    I just LOVE that GIECO commercial. It makes me smile EVERY time. I also like the slinky on the escalator. AWEsome!

    Who else like them?

    The bodybuilder directing traffic makes me giggle. Clever commercials.

    I will also say that it's one heck of an insurance company - they've always done right by us.

    I like the beef jerky commercial where the guys scare Bigfoot with the snake in the can....Then they go in their camper, and Bigfoot throws a Python through the window...

    I also like the one with the Gecko in the NASCAR shop and every time he tries to say something, a loud noise drowns him out from giving out...the secret to Casey Mears's barbeque sauce. Of course, I've worked with Casey fairly often, so I like him anyway...

    And I like the Bigfoot one where they put his hand in the water and make him wet his bed.

    Love the witch in a broom factory. Makes me smile too. I also like the Progressive? (I think!) commercial with the little piggy who goes "wheeeee!" all the way home. Too cute.

    Mayhem is my favorite. I really hope they bring back the Christmas tree one this year.

    But the piggy? Can't stand him. He needs to "wheeeee" right into a smoker.

    I like the pig because it makes me remember a good friend who has passed away. When I was younger I was traveling with her an one of her friends to a horse show and she started saying "I gotta wee, really you have to stop so I can wee". This went on for a bit and until we were in the middle of no where and we stopped and she got out and went "WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    So the piggy makes me smile too.

    I also hate the pig and love the mayhem (a genius campaign if you ask me). Here's one of my favorites:

    I love the slinky on an escalator commercial. "This is awesome!!"

    I also think Maxwell, the Geiko pig is cute.

    Love the "original" pig commercial (they made a 2nd & maybe even a 3rd one that weren't as funny, & pretty much all of the others. My hands-down favorite though is one of their earlier ones - the one with the two squirrels in the road that cause an accident & then high-five each other.

    Mayhem commercials actually make me WANT to watch commercials instead of fast forwarding through.
    A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

    Might be a reason, never an excuse...
