    It's still on the air here in Mass.
    I think it's cute.

    The favorite new commercial in our house is the GEICO one Happier than a Camel on Wednesday. Where the camel is walking around an office asking everyone what day it is.

    My DH and I walk around going "what, what!!"
    Yes, we have issues. And are clearly easily amused.

    I haven't seen that one. I'll have to watch for it. I like the "How happy" Geico commercials.

    After the uproar started, I made a point to pay attention to it to see if it seemed at all odd or out of place, or even remotely innapropriate. Nope! Nothing.

    Some people are idiot jerks, just looking to find problems where there aren't any.
    I swear I must be completely obtuse! I saw the commercial recently. I also remember reading about some controversy with a Cheerios commercial and a mixed race family. But until I just read these posts here, I never put two and two together. I just thought the commercial was adorable and that the little girl was trying to protect her father. I actually never even focused on the race of the people in the commercial!!

    ETA: These 2 commercials can be viewed on YouTube. Apparently people complained and they were forced to take them off the air so they are online only.
    OMG seriously? I have no words.

    Same here. I saw the commercial and remembered it as being funny and cute. I didn't notice race until someone pointed it out. BTW here's a great spoof on all of the to-do about this: Cheerios Parody: Hilarious Spoof Of Biracial Ad Responds To Haters (VIDEO)

    Finally got to see this one, and it is HILARIOUS!!! The camel kept wanting his coworkers to say that it was HUMP DAY!!!! THAT made the commercial!

    GEICO has really good writers!!!

    Too Cute!!

    The Cheerios commercial. A little boy and his mom are having breakfast and he ask his mom if Nana ever gave her Cheerios when she was little? Mom answers yeah ..he goes on to ask if Cheerios were the same. Mom answers yeah, pretty much the same. He says So when we have Cheerios, it's like having breakfast with Nana...

    Oh, I know... I teared up at that one yesterday. I did feel a little jerked around, though. Now watch this oldie.
