Geico: Duncan The Walrus Is An Excellent Hockey Goalie

Of all of Geico’s ads, this might be one of the best. Duncan is a great hockey goalie, well, because he’s as big as the goal. Watching the coach (James McCauley) throw fish to Duncan and his teammates barking is quite the delight. And “no sleepies” is a fabulous commercial catchphrase. Enjoy!



Parents Aren’t Perfect In These Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Ads

Nobody is perfect, and that includes parents. Even the best parents screw up sometimes. In these amusingly brief, slice of life spots from Crispin Porter + Bogusky, Kraft Mac & Cheese spotlights some parenting foibles. There’s the overly enthusiastic (and obese) dad who jumps on a bounce house, deflating it and frightening a party of kids. There’s the hockey mom who’s cheering for…someone else’s kid. And the dad who swings his daughter so high that she disappears. Of course, everything is good again after they make the Blue Box for their kids. If only life was that simple.

This Is SportsCenter: Henrik Lundqvist Interacts With The Swedish Chef

After a lengthy lockout, the NHL is back today. I’m not a big hockey fan, but it’s nice for those who are. One of the best goalies in the world is Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers. Henrik is Swedish. And so is the Swedish Chef. Therein lies the humor of the newest commercial from the great, long-running This Is SportsCenter campaign. Robert Flores seems a little freaked out by pickled herring and blodkorv. And good luck to Linda Cohn on getting that hamburger.
