Are Geico Ads too Subtle?

Maybe I am slow or don't pay enough attention.

But the Ice Tea commercial I kept thinking what is the point? Why is Ice Tea saying "It's lemon aide people.."? Final, oh they were talking about him. duh.

And then there was the one with the Gecko who is talking about everything being CGI. "Even this coffee is CGI". Well Duh, so is the Gecko.

Annoying the world since 1960!

Who knew? I guess I liked the caveman ads the best. No, they're not too subtle for me.
