    I have feelings of both...

    CBS news was raving about it,have had it sent to me a few times too. I'm still not sure what to think.

    Their movements seem a bit creepy as if they're aliens, so it kind of grosses me out...
    But their faces and expressions are so cute it makes me fluctuate between liking and not liking them.

    Now I understand, maybe, why my dogs are freaked out by toddlers (they've only been around them 2X).

    But it definitely gets my attention.

    That said, I keep forgetting the message of the commercial....

    like many, the 'gimmick' is what I remember but not necessarily what it's supposed to be advertising!

    Cute AND Creepy.
    On that web site there is also a video about them making the commercial.

    I always forget who the sponsors of the commercials are too. (and don't care).

    Guess that's why they run them 50 times a day.
    (or in Geicko's case - 5000 times a day! )

    Maybe this is just a "man thing" (or just me) but ... if they'd just put some clothes on those kids ..

    All I can say is rather strange ! In a way it is cute when you think about what all they had to do to come out with those pics for the video. Is this supposed to be a fad now or what?? I could see it once or twice but I have a feeling they are going to way over due it.

    The faces of the babies are cute but the movements surelya aren't normal. Now they can do anything with videos, animated or not. I guess we have to be careful what we believe too.

    Good grief, what are they going to do with these videos.? Make more money I guess, of course what else ?!!

    the other day. Couldn't see the video. Now I got to see part of it.

    I believe a fair and balanced opinion would be that it's cute in a creepy
    way or creepy in a cute way. Take your choice.

    Did you read the comments? A couple people explained how the
    video was made. Adult skaters w/ baby faces pasted on. It was so
    obvious once this was pointed out to me.

    I don't go to Youtube much anymore. Haven't been able to see the
    videos for the last couple months. And then there is the obligation
    to read all the comments. Some of those vids have hundreds of

    Even if you took Evelyn Woods Speed Reading course, it would take a
    lotta time. (How come we don't hear about Evelyn Woods anymore?
    It's like "Film at eleven". Pop culture from the past.)

    Thanks for bringing this cultural event to my attention, Jim.
