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

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. - ken

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.

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

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

Getting a big brand to have fun is hard. This is a better ad than every single commercial every single P&G brand made all last year minus it’s a tide ad. Props to Martin for keeping the ball rolling

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

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.

I laughed out loud at it. While alone. Even the kids facial expression was funny

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.

It’s a brilliant spot in my book (I wish). My wife and I have been laughing about it for two days. Why do you think it’s terrible?
