Let's Be Honest, Abe.

Can you imagine if we purchased things solely on the popularity of their commercials? I'm seeing a bunch of Geico insured, Toyota swagger wagon driving, Bud Light drinking, Snickers and Cheeto eating, deliriously happy people roaming around. Does Geico have health insurance? Because with the inevitable drunk-driving accidents happening and junk food induced obesity on the rise, they'd be wise to expand their package offering. Luckily, there are consumers who are smart enough to buy stuff using criteria besides how cute or funny an ad is. I'm not one of them, naturally, but my husband is and that is why my life isn't a hot mess.

Geico does it again with this ad (their marketing budget must rival Willie Nelson's pot budget), which is one of my favorites ever!

I can't tell you how often my husband and I have wondered the same thing. Ads are everywhere - we can only hope that there are a few people here and there who don't buy health insurance based on a commercial!

That's the truth! There's no escaping the stuff! Food ads are especially dangerous for me!
