TV Pilots: So Easy, a Caveman Can Get One...

Okay, this has absolutely nothing to do with genealogy, but I was intrigued to find out that the "cavemen" from the popular Geico commercials may get their own television show.

ABC has announced it has ordered a pilot for a comedy, tentatively titled "Cavemen," that features the characters used in a series of ads by the insurance company. In the ads, cavemen appear insulted by a Geico pitchman's claim that the company's Web site is so easy to use that "even a caveman can do it."

You can read more about it here.

Some may think the ads silly, but I actually think they are quite clever and will be curious to see if the pilot is picked up. Now, if only one of them would appear on "Dancing with the Stars" that would be something to watch! :-)

Sometimes, I just feel my brain is on overload with all of my projects and things that have to get done, and little distractions like this help me remember not to take myself or my work (either my real job or my genealogical research, or writing) too seriously...
