  2. I see the A-10 pilot recruitment has stepped up a gear.
  3. Obviously had to raise the entry requirements after the events of the past few weeks.

    At least a man knows where he stands with a bash over the head and a confused 'Ug?'

    After posting this poster, it occured to me that many in the UK may not be aware of this particular "Caveman" series of ads by an Insurance Company here in the States.

    Here is a link to more data on the caveman and the ads!

    (I can assure you it has nothing to do with A-10 pilots.)

    Geico's Caveman Returns
    September 13, 2006
    By Richard Williamson

    He's easily offended.

    DALLAS Geico's caveman is making a comeback, this time on an airport's moving sidewalk in a spot created by The Martin Agency.

    With no voiceover, the spot breaking this week shows the caveman gliding past various signs and advertisements. These include a Geico sign that shows a caveman, a computer and the text: "So easy a caveman can do it." Ultimately, the caveman exhibits a peeved expression as he departs with his tennis racket and carry-on luggage.

    Geico's prehistoric pitchmen debuted in a 2004 commercial called "Apology" that has won fans for its portrayal of sensitive L.A. cavemen who are easily offended by the insurer's use of their image to symbolize simplicity. The humor and acting in the original spot raised the profile of Interpublic Group's Martin in Richmond, Va.

    "A lot of people thought the cavemen ads were over after Geico apologized," said Ted Ward, vice president of marketing at Geico. "But the cavemen developed an almost cult following and became a great reminder of how easy it is to use So apology or no apology, the cavemen are back."

    "Apology" featured Geico trying to make amends to the cavemen at a swank restaurant where one caveman's order—roast duck with mango salsa—entered the pop-culture lexicon.

    "The response to the cavemen has exceeded all of our expectations," said Joe Lawson, copywriter of the campaign and a vice president at The Martin Agency. "We were thrilled to continue the caveman narrative, thrilled to share our version of what it's like to be a caveman in the modern world."

    Credits on the new spot include creative director Steve Bassett, directors Will Speck and Josh Gordon, and production company Furlined of Los Angeles.
  5. It looks like Morgan Freeman posed for the pic.

  7. Its so easy a caveman can do it

    and probably will
  8. Do
  9. Poster will really only make sense if you've seen the four or five caveman adverts. Have a gander at youtube and look for 'Geico caveman'

  10. Just make sure that when you recruit uggs from the unwashed masses that you explain the difference between police and insurgents :frustrated:

    It helps a tad :thumright:
