You Won't Believe Why this GEICO Car Insurance Ad Infuriated One Million Moms

|

The Government Employees Insurance Company –you all know it as GEICO- has promoted its business through many quirky television ads that usually encompass the tagline, "15 minutes could save you 15 percent or more on car insurance", and which have starred a number of different characters, ranging from a caveman to an anthropomorphic Day Gecko, and more recently, Maxwell the Pig.

Most people perceive the commercials as funny, but one particular ad with Maxwell the Pig has earned the wrath of a Mississippi website named "One Million Moms", run by conservative Christian group American Family Association (AFA).

Why, hear you ask? Well, because according to a statement released by One Million Moms, the emergency roadside assistance ad promotes the wrong kind of love...between a woman and a pig – no really, we're not kidding, just check out the release that follows the jump and then watch the commercial, if you haven’t done so already.



Press Statement from One Million Moms:

"Maxwell the Geico pig goes on a date in Geico's new piggy commercial. In Geico commercial, the pig and a young female are in a parked car on a lover's lane. The car is actually broken down, but while sitting there the girl appears to be turned on by the pig. She hints that she wants to make out. She is disappointed when she learns the tow truck is on the way and they won't be able to "pass the time."

"Geico has succeeded in offending its customers with this inappropriate advertisement. One Million Moms has received numerous complaints because Geico's new commercial plays with the idea of bestiality. Parents find this type of advertising repulsive and unnecessary. Airing a commercial with an animal in it will surely grab children's attention, but this is a horrible commercial for families to see. Geico does not have our children's best interest in mind."

"The Geico Marketing Team may have thought this would be humorous, but it is disgusting to see how the company takes lightly the act of bestiality. Let Geico know their new ad is irresponsible."

Really?! Damn already, can't everyone just relax and just let things like this alone. I'm sick of the political correctness and unnecessary censoring in the media.

How many of their kids went out and started kissing pigs?
Zero? great. No harm done.
Two? You raised your kids wrong. If your kids know what the commercial is suggesting, you better talk to your kids. They didn't do anything in the commercial.

Who cares what these simpletons with their imaginary friend thinks......they are just looking for donations, Check out their charity navigator. Send money. They have more products than Walmart.

Can you trust people who believe dinasaurs roamed the earth 5,000 years ago, that evolution in nonsense, etc etc etc.
It's all about money and herding the gullable.

Tell those one million moms to go to hell. It is a commercial. Geesh!

Beastiality....the AFA pastors should not be watching those porn sites.

I understand this actually. And here is the reason why. Let us take back for a second how impressionable people are. Back in the day men wouldn't even dare thinking about sagging their pants, but when placed in their face on a constant stream they are condition to sag their pants. Back in the day it was inappropriate for a teen to get pregnant. Back in the day women wouldn't dare called themselves a bitch. Back in the day we didn't have school shootings....Think of how times has change? We live in a immoral time were if an inclining is dropped into the air people begin to produce it. We become more excepting of nonsense and things that are devices to wiping out man kind. Maybe, not like a nuke, but like a virus. Sure we look kinda healthy now, but with time we have deteriorated. Look, people do commit bestiality on serious levels. This is the most sexually charged environment that existed in time itself. Everything is sex. We can't go anywhere without seeing some connotation in an ad dealing with sex. This is call subconscious manipulation. Basically, conditioning and response.Trust me this thing is like a seed which is harmless but planted in the right environment it can blossom. Back in the day girls didn't even care to be a lesbian. But its the new trend for girls to try girls. Why is that? It has been implanted by society through the current brainwashing of the media. Have fun if you don't think that you are not affected.

Dear Geico, please make some more follow-ups to this ad. Show them what bestiality really is.

BrucieBruce said... »February 25, 2013

Only the conservatives at AFA could consider it a possible reality to get turned on by a smooth talking pig...unless pigs talk in Mississippi. If I doubted science, I guess I might think pigs really talk. So I'd guess it okay to have sex with a pig, because they gave consent. I haven't been there, but things do seem a bit different over them there parts.

1 million recently divorced and dumped women*

I guess "million moms" have nothing better to do with their time.
Can I make a suggestion?.... FRUIT NINJA!!!!!

Sabelo Mzuku said... »February 26, 2013

all million of em: HELL! for them to have written that is a sign of boredom!! ...and the kids did not complain!!

Ugly said... »February 26, 2013

One million mums...? Really...??


OR just an overweight hand-full of them, with the bodymass of one-million mums?
Guess that explains why they don't like pigs, then? It reminds them of them!

Or as they say in the US... "Get real!"

Naarr, let them breed with pigs - it'll improve the gene-pool!

That's one million more people in my country that have proved how stupid we can be. I hope for my sake, as an American, that they've inflated the list of their supporters because there can't be that many dumb-asses out here.

Flasheroo said... »February 26, 2013

Well,the Pig is kinda cute!

KidRed said... »February 26, 2013

Just another reason why religion is stupid. It makes people do and say stupid things.

chippers said... »February 26, 2013

these scary, evil women hate everything. they should just turn off their TVs and go back to reading their bibles by candlelight and keep their opinions to themselves.

kachuks said... »February 26, 2013

Strange that people from Mississippi automatically inferred bestiality from watching this commercial.

How do you compliment an AFA woman?

I can understand 1milmon and comments here, but I still don't know why the commercial is implying that a woman wants to make out with a pig? could it be bestiality? could it be degrading a woman's choice? perhaphs humor? if it was for humor, I think having the lizzard and the pig together would be very funny. anyway, I think it's time that Geico's marketing department to issue a statement.

Jim Wile said... »February 26, 2013

I can't imagine what they have to say about the Jack in the box commercials.....

John_R said... »February 26, 2013

Damn those women, first they complain they want to be treated equally as men. Fine that's been done. Then they complain because they want to be in the work force and bring home the bacon. Now this girl in the commercial wants to bring home the bacon and those women are still bitching. make up your freaking minds. Besides how many times have women said men are pigs or dogs. damn if you do and damn if you don't.

Dave Cohen said... »February 26, 2013

Just saw the girl in this ad doing a BURGER KING commercial. She was eating their new pulled pork sandwich.

Will they now target "pulled" pork.

Grr said... »February 27, 2013

Dear one million moms - go eat a dick

James Sims said... »March 19, 2013

OMG.....it's a commercial with humor. Now I know what is meant by gag at a nat and swallow a camel. Good grief...so when commercials show a girl in love with a piece of chocolate what do you call that? It's an insurance ad to sell insurance to adults.

James Sims said... »March 19, 2013

Back in the day women couldn't vote, wear pants, cut there hair. Back in the day someone of a different color couldn't drink from the same water fountains as a white person. This is not a seed to be planted. This is your opinion of what you think is wrong with society. Quit it.....stop it....it's a commercial not a seed.
