The mayhem commercials are yucky; can't stand them.

I used to not like the Mayhem commercials, but that guy is kind of growing on me. The 'teenage girl' one is funny and the GPS one too.

A couple of the Geico ones are good, like the one with Randy Johnson and the woodchucks chucking wood.

My boyfriend and I love the Mayhem commercials. And we quote bits of them all the time to each other. "shaky, shaky", "because that's what us deer do", "Sorry *Robert* 5 dollars doesn't buy my undivided attention."

My favorites:Teenage girl in pink driving, lawn mowing boy, deer in headlights, breaking tree branch, teenage girl jogging... and dog chewing up the back seat. I love when he spits out the foam at the end.

The GEICO gecko is funny too. "Fancy a crisp?"

depends on the Geico commercial. I like the "jackwagon", woodchucks and Abe Lincoln commercials, but Mayhem is just good times. I love Dean Winter's deadpan delivery.

Is the mayhem guy a known actor ?
If he isn't he should be; he reminds me of Michael Keaton in "Pacific Heights".

He's been in a lot of tv. I first saw him at Ryan O'Reilly in OZ ... wow, he was the main reason to watch. Total psycho.

He's also been a recurring hilarious character in 30 Rock.
