I miss the Cavemen segments from the Geico adds.

Geico had some of the best ad campaigns both on and offline, but the Cavemen series were my favorites. I'm told the television series they inspired actually wasn't bad either.

Then there's the Peter Pan ad, also done by Geico.

this might be odd but the "Embrace Life" seatbelt PSA always left a deep impression on me. I saw it on a bus here in Shanghai and I immediately googled it when I got home.

The old animated Askit powder ads, from the early 80s here in the UK. Loved them, they were so funny. Headache and flu and cough miseries stomping around looking grumpy and then getting scared away.
