Default Please explain these tv commercials

Hi,

I recall seeing 2 commercials shown in the evening (during the olympics) that I just don't get.
I may have been half asleep, but I just didn't understand them. Please explain...

1) Some good looking guy talking on the phone, sounds like he is making dinner reservations or something (can barely hear him). He is ironing something, and at the end they show him holding up a little girl's dress????

2) Geico caveman commerical, he's on the beach, then he's offended by a plane's banner that says "so easy a caveman can do it" so he wants to leave. I get that...but why does his girlfriend lift up her shirt in front of the plane??

Maybe I am just getting too old to understand those hip commercials on network tv!

Thanks!

I don't get the guy making reservations one either. He was also cleaning a toilet. It was for a car or something? Very confusing.

Didn't see the other one.

1) He probably has a dinner date with his daughter. aw, sweet!

2) I think she's getting comfy and he's really getting into it and then the plane shows up.

Isn't it a woman's dress? I asked my SO about this and he said he was making reservations for him and his girl and getting her clothes ready. But it's a truck commercial so I don't understand how it's related to trucks?

It's really a car commercial.

The guy is everything you'd want in a man:

He makes dinner reservations to celebrate 6 months together, while ironing your dress, while cleaning, all the while not wearing a shirt.

The car they are trying to sell in the commercial is everything you'd want in a car.

Ahh....guess I thought those didn't exist so I never thought of it that way.

Haha, that's really weird. If my SO washes my clothes he gets in trouble b/c they are delicate and he puts everything in the dryer. I'm sure he's terrified to iron them.
