Jeremy and the Caveman

Last week, my buddy, Jeremy Vaught, attended the SXSW conference in Austin, Texas. While there, he had his picture taken with various “famous people” – well, at least they’re famous to those in the fishbowl.

Jeremy’s Nokia N95 captured images of him besides the likes of Mark Zuckerberg , Jeff Bezos , iJustine, Jeff “Dr Tiki” Macpherson, and Kevin Rose. Don’t worry if you couldn’t pick these people out of a lineup; it just means that you’re a “normal person.”

However, what about the picture above? Can you name that conference attendee? Jeremy told me that to his “normal” friends, the most recognizable person was “Marty” the Geico Caveman.

I love the irony.

  • On one hand, it shows that normal people are much more in touch with Old Media. Okay, that’s fair.
  • On the other hand, am I the only one who finds it ironic that the posterboy for Old Media is a Caveman?

BTW. In the picture — the Caveman is on the right:-)
