GEICO Cavemen

I love this commercial. Not only is it hilarious but it conveys its idea with no dialog. I can't wait to see what ABC does with these characters this fall. From Variety: "'Cavemen' will revolve around three pre-historic men who must battle prejudice as they attempt to live as normal thirtysomethings in modern Atlanta." I've heard some people decrying the end of storytelling as we know it because a TV series is being developed off of characters from insurance commercials. Honestly I couldn't disagree more. A good idea is a good idea regardless of where it came from. I laugh my head off at most of these commercials and I hope the show can retain the same level of humor.
