Hmmm....well....I have to admit that when I first saw the commercial I was a little surprised. And perhaps tilted my head for a second in confusion. But then I moved on. Apparently not everyone was able to move on.
The insurance company giant GEICO has used a gecko and a pig to promote its business, but its latest commercial has the advocacy group One Million Moms claiming the ad is not cute. The ad, the group claims, is offensive and promotes bestiality.
A 30 second commercial released by GEICO has Maxwell in a topless convertible with a woman by his side. The car has just broken down, and Maxwell uses his mobile GEICO application to locate a tow truck. The woman seems frustrated that the tow truck will arrive so quickly, as she asks, “Oh, so that means we won’t be stuck up here for hours, with nothing to do?” The pig brushes off her advances.
Geico isn't taking the comments seriously.
