And this year's best advertising slogan goes to...

That's hard to top.
Those "Lance in Your Pants" adds are pretty rediculous, but they make me laugh.

I love how the guy who posted the adverts calls them 'condescending', yet HE'S the one who posted them, and I'd put money on the fact that him and his mates probably run around calling eachother 'monkeyboy' and joking about 'spanking the monkey'.

I really like the Geico gecko one , where he explains his role in the ad (unfortunately I forget the exact words) and says in the end: You think you are watching entertaining television, but you're actually watching <whispers> a commercial...
Too cute!

What a casting coup to get Dirk Novitski to play the caveman
on the right. Saved a bundle on makeup cost.

Geico gecko and caveman ads... great stuff. I'll stop the fast-forwarding DVR to watch those.

The cavemen are funnier, but Messing with Sasquatch makes me laugh too.
