Guys, that Geico commercial with the grandpa whose nose plays "Flight of the Bumblebee" is pretty terrible.

Change my mind.

It’s good. Look at all the crap out there and at least this is surprising and fun. They actually used their imaginations. How rare. The Geico work is great. We should all appreciate that they make entertaining work on a large scale. More clients should follow their lead

I’m not usually a fan of broader humor but it loved this. The execution was really finessed. Nice job.

Hey, I wrote that one! (Hurtful.) Yeah, I know that ones pretty divisive. Kinda like the Peter Pan one we did. Can’t please ‘em all. Thanks for nice comments tho, fish-people.

You’re Wrong. It’s amazing. It’s totally unexpected and hasn’t been done before. And you remember who it’s for. Advertising nailed.

OP I would not like to be a part of your team. You seem like you hate creativity and give pretty terrible feedback.

Change my mind.

This spot is so good. I would love to have made it. It’s bizarre, and playful, and you suck

I wish. Loved that one. I wasn’t fishing (...) for compliments, just pointing out some spots can be both equally hated and liked, in my experience. (People HATED Peter Pan) Cost of trying weird shit I guess. - Ken

They also have a really good cinema version of this spot that I saw in the theater on Friday.

You obviously remember it and are taking time out of your busy day to discuss it. Therefore:

A) It’s a successful ad.

B) It should be awarded a webby, Clio, and a titanium Lion.
