One Million Moms, a Christian group that monitors TV, is calling on Geico Insurance to pull a television commercial featuring a woman flirting with a talking pig (video below), which One Million Moms says "plays with the idea of bestiality."
According to Buzzfeed.com, One Million Moms said in a statement:
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.
The commercial features a young woman and a pig stranded in a broken-down car. While the girl flirts with the pig, he shows off the mobile Geico app on his cell phone. The pig assures his human date that he has called for roadside assistance, which will be there soon.
On the Geico Facebook page, the pig ad has more than 130 likes and has been shared more than 100 times.
One Million Moms previously objected to a Skittles ad featuring a walrus and Ellen DeGeneres doing commercials to JC Penney because she is gay.
