‘Deadliest Catch’ vs. Geico Caveman?!?

Let me get this straight…
Geico Caveman meets ‘Deadliest Catch’ fishermen, in Homer, AK, on the F/V TimeBandit…   AND THERE’S NO VIDEOCLIP?!?  …Sheez!

Well its true though–HomerNews.com reports:

At first glance, the guy hanging around the F/V Time Bandit Thursday afternoon with the shaggy hair, bushy beard, red turtleneck sweater and down vest might look like your average crab fisherman. There’s something a bit odd about him, though. Maybe it’s the heavy brow, the wide nose and the hairy hands. If he looks a bit Neanderthal, well, that’s because he is.

Homer, meet the Caveman.

DK Productions traveled to Homer, Alaska this week to film several commercials aboard the F/V TimeBandit.  You’ll have to read the rest of the article for details but mum is the word though, on the actor portraying the caveman and the plots.  The TimeBandit is home from Opilio season and the Hillstrands are already up to their necks in ‘creative’ projects…

The Geico commercials are only the latest in the Hillstrands’ marketing of their boat. Spinning off their success on Deadliest Catch, the brothers have written a book (with Malcolm MacPherson) “Time Bandit: Two Brothers, The Bering Sea and One of the World’s Deadliest Jobs,” published in 2008 by Random House. They also have the Time Bandit store, managed by Lou Lovelace, with a street operation on the Homer Spit and online at http://www.timebandit.tv.
