    even though you hated the cave man thing (and I agree with you [​IMG] ) If you remembered the commercial it was a successful campaign.

    dont you hate it when it is considered successful for annoying the crap out of you?
     
  3. Hi! I thought the first wave of 'caveman' commercials were brilliant. Sparked a discussion in my small group of friends whether or not we would date a modern-day-caveman (we're all married), but it brought up some interesting racial-type issues none of us *thought* we had.
    I thought the new 'honest abe' commercial I saw was cute, but seems a one-shot kind of thing. It's funny but has no depth (silly to even say that). I haven't seen the other one you mentioned.
    Usually, when I'm watching TV I also have a book in hand and tune out commercials (and boring TV). My husband likes to watch commercials and 'pick them apart' for inaccuracies. He also corrects the news reporters grammar and sentence structure.
    Yeah, we're a fun couple.
