Saw this masterpiece during last night Broncos/Panthers game once and already hate it.



You know there has to be a joke about yellow liquid and Geico commercials.

What's surprising? That random white people know who 'Ice T' is.
I will NEVER buy insurance from these f*ckers! Angry

On the subject of car insurance, it's not a bad ad.

Much better ad than that ad about "Brad".

The "Brad" ad is just plain sad.

That ad's so sad, it makes me mad.

When it's over, I'm always glad.

Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Geico, will stop at nothing to make more stupid commercials...at their policy holder's expense.

May my ancestors forgive me, I actually laughed at this ad. If Ice-T can make a Geico ad tolerable he should probably receive a lifetime achievement award at some show somewhere.

Ice-T deserves major credit for getting a decent ad out of Geico.

I don't see why.

It's not like he wrote the ad or came up with the idea himself.

Some member of an ad agency somewhere who came up with the idea to hire Ice T by throwing a pile of money at him deserves any credit due.

All Ice T ever did was come up with a silly rap name for himself.

Oh, I think Ice-T did much more than just rap under a silly name...
 
Not exactly a role model.

Depends who's watching.  I'm sure he's a role model to thugs and "aspiring" rappers.
 
And besides the crimes, a rapper of any value has to have "feuds".  I see he's had his share.

for heaven's sake...who doesn't know who he is and why does anyone care, other than the 're-virgined'-version of himself? I think he generally tries to keep a positive spin on most things he does, these days.

Plus I've never heard of anyone going up to a stand clearly marked lemonade and ask if they are selling iced tea.

Yeah, but Ice-T actually sells the ad. The same ad execs have come up with plenty of other ads, and...did not pull off anything decent.

Now having thought about it, this ad is so much about lemonade and Ice-T that I forgot it was supposed to be a commericial about car insurance.
 
Guess it fails on those grounds.

^point taken.
Maybe it would make more sense if a drunk in a beat-up old wagon plowed into the kids and hit a tree, then another car, before asking about Ice-T.

For the insanity that Geico has given us, here's a parody of Ice-T's "Cop Killer" called "Ad Killer"!...

Ad killer, yeah!

I got my TV on
I got my NBC on
I got "Frasier" on
This commercial is too long
I got my twelve pack drink it off
I got my volume turned off
I'm 'bout to bust some buttons off
I'm 'bout to dust my VCR off

I'm an ad killer, better you than me
Ad killer, **** Geico insanity!
Ad killer, I know your family's grieving
(Help 'em!)
Ad killer, but tonight we get even, ha ha

I got my brain on hype
Tonight'll be your night
I watched "The Facts Of Life"
And there's commercials left and right
My adrenaline's pumpin'
I got my suurround sound bumpin'
These commercials sell me somethin'
But in my wallet is nuthin'!

Ad killer, together you and me
Ad killer, **** Progressive and Arby's please!
Ad killer, I know your momma's grieving
(Help her!)
Ad killer, and tonight we get even, yeah!

Die, die, die, commercials, die!

**** Geico commercials!
**** Progressive commercials!
**** KFC commercials!
**** Arby's commercials!

**** Mountain Dew commercials!
**** Time-Warner commercials!
**** Donald Trump commercials!
**** Hillary Clinton commercials!

Did I mention **** Geico commercials?
Yeah!

Ad killer, better world for you and me.
I'm an AD KILLER, **** show brutality!
Ad killer, I know your friends are grieving
(Help 'em!)
Ad killer, but tonight we get even, ha ha ha ha, yeah!

**** the Wal-Mart commercials!
**** the Subway commercials!
**** the Liberty Mutual commercials!
**** the Juicy Fruit commercials!

**** the Head On commercials!
**** the K Mart commercials!
**** the Yoplait commercials!
**** the Pampers commercials!
Break it down

**** the commercials, yeah!
**** the commercials, for longer shows
**** the commercials, even on radio
**** the commercials, is that why my internet is slow?
**** the commercials, for your freedom
**** the commercials, I'm no wussy
**** the commercials, Commercials I Hate courage
**** the commercials, sing along

Ad killer!
Ad killer!
Ad killer!
Ad killer!

Ad killer! I didn't see 1000 commercials when I grew up?
Ad killer! No choice
Ad killer! We are ************'
Ad killers!

Ad killer, together you and me
Ad killer, **** corporation immorality!
Ad killer, I know your papa's grieving
(Help him!)
Ad killer, every night here we get even!

I know... there's a lot of F-Bombs in that song...so I censored them...
Thank God for kids who love Obscure Things.

I just started seeing it last night, I admit this one made me chuckle a little bit. Like anything else, after I see it for the 1000th time in a week..it will begin to annoy me.


This does make me wonder, if Notorious BIG was alive today...would he be a TV star?
Maybe washed up and doing ads for Nutri System.  We'll never know.

It's too bad that like so many people nowadays, whoever made that gif doesn't know how to spell.

Apparently they didn't follow Ice T's admonition to read the sign.
