First time I've seen the "Dryer Lint" one. Not sure what to say about that.

Apparently Mayhem is taking lessons from Peggy now...

WinkAgreed!
'Peggy' has his very own special thread which includes all (and more) of the commercials...

Is it true he's missing part of some fingers or something? Now I keep trying to spot that, but they seem pretty good at hiding his hands.

ConfusedI can only suggest you 'Google' it - but let us know what you find out.
A simple answer works fine - a 'high five', if everything is there, a 'thumbs up', if not (as long as there's a thumb to be had).

My new favorite is the guard dog.  I think this series just gets better and better.  I see alot of the guy selling the motorcycle to mayhem--its okay, but not quite as funny as most of the others.

These commercials can be amusing, though they get played an awful lot and can get tiresome after awhile.

The dude really does come across as a total douche, they definitely picked the right guy to play "mayhem"/

I love them all. I think the guy who plays Mayhem is on 30 Rock as a love interest of Liz Lemon (Tina Fey).

Mr. Mayhem, Dean Winters, turned up on Law & Order: SVU last week which was neat because he started out with the show its first two seasons and that was about 12 years ago.  I hope they keep him around as a love interest for Olivia (though I think she is as "played out" as Elliot was).  But it would be worth watching for Dean Winters and Danny Pino.

Those new ones are AWESOME - they can fire Dennis Haysbert already, and that means COMPLETELY, not even having him do the voice at the end.

I like all the Mayhem commercials, but I'm also getting bored with the whole campaign.  When they started out, the idea was new and fresh and a good change of pace from the usual crappy commercials.  But it lost the new/fresh element, and it's become more of the same.  Still good, though---just no longer the nice surprise from commercial land that they once were.
 
It'd be kinda like Led Zeppelin putting out ten albums just like their first.

The point you make about the "new/fresh element" is obvious; we all know who 'Mayhem' is - now it is a bit more of that anticipation and 'adrenaline rush' experienced when we were seeing that first-time showing of that brand-new, ultra-violent Tom & Jerry, Bugs Bunny, or Woody Woodpecker cartoon (we were all sick of Popeye and Bluto).
Mayhem is the only thing that comes to mind when someone says "Allstate".
