An organization that monitors children’s television programming, One Million Moms, is calling for insurance company Geico to pull an ad that it says promotes bestiality. In the ad, a woman speaks to a talking pig in a way that the groups feels is inappropriate.
During the commercial, while the pig is paying attention to his Geico mobile app, the young woman speaks to him in a flirtatious manner. In their press release, One Million Moms said:
“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.”
The Daily Mail reports that One Million Moms has previously protested other companies for promoting bestiality. The group once petitioned against Skittles because of a commercial featuring a walrus.
The ad, as well as the rest of the press release, is below:
“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.”
