    For anyone who hasn't figured out the Geico commercial, Ice-T is the old dude sitting off to the side.

    I watched that commercial at least a dozen times and it never made sense.

    Got it instantly. But I go all the way back to Breakin' with Ice-T and I am a L&O junkie so I couldn't miss him.

    That's about how long it took me. Then once I did, I slapped myself in the head and marveled at the brilliance.

    There is another commercial, forget what's it's for, but 2 guys meet at a football game. Both have small section of fence. Had to explain that one to the wife that one of the guys was supposed to bring the "D" but the both brought fences.

    I needed help with the Aldi's singles commercial. I wouldn't have paid attention to it long enough to get the joke if it hadn't been pointed out.

    Is this generational?
    At the ripe old age of 56 - "Cop Killer" - is what I think of when Ice-T comes up.
    Later on his stint on L&O....but seriously, easily recognizable.

    Hm, I am 36 and I also remember Ice-T from his days in Body Count (-> 'Cop Killer').

    I remember you had to be military or government to purchase GEICO (Government Employees Insurance COmpany). Had it while in Navy wayyy back. And couldn't keep when I was discharged.

    I did not get it the first time, but the second time when he said "no its lemonade" started to laugh. Guess I am just a little slow

    I think it's hilarious. Guess I watched too many episodes of Law and Order.
