Group upset by Geico's 'bestiality' ad
upi ^ | Feb. 25, 2013

Posted on 02/26/2013 9:09:32 AM PST by JoeProBono

TUPELO, Miss., - A conservative Mississippi website is objecting to a Geico ad for depicting "bestiality" in the form of showing a pig on a date with a woman.

One Million Moms, a website run by conservative Christian group American Family Association, said the Geico ad shows Maxwell the Geico pig parked in a car with a woman and "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,'" the website said.

One Million Moms said the commercial is offensive because it "plays with the idea of bestiality."

The website called upon those offended by the ad to "let Geico know their new ad is irresponsible."

I thought it was silly, and she is definitely not guilty of anything.

I don’t see the problem.

Good. At least I'm not the only one who's offended.

It's time. Turn loose Armageddon. We've gone too far to be fixed.

A pig!? No wonder they don’t get the purity of the religion of peace as customers! Change that animal into a goat and put a strapping young muzzie next to it...they’d clean up!

"the girl appears to be turned on by the pig."

Umm...a TALKING pig. How does that fit in with their fantasy world?

American Family Association is like the NAACP and LaRaza and the ADL and the ACLU in that they are in a perpetual state of being offended by something.

"Family Guy" is puerile filth. The Geico ad is pretty disgusting too.

I see it as a play on the old saying "men are pigs."

And we are.

Just wow. They're worried about "bestiality" in a commercial that has a talking pig who surfs the web on his smart phone?

These folks have a problem separating TV from reality.

I'm not one to defend the current American entertainment industry, but sometimes its critics just need to take the stick from out of their butt and let a commercial be a commercial.

In the ad though the young woman is the sexual aggressor (which means it was focus-group tested for the Sandra Fluke customer base)

Geico ads are inane.

Getting upset about them is moronic.

I must admit the first time my husband and I saw it we were a little confused, as in are they really suggesting this girl wants to make out with a pig? Just a strange commercial overall, and I can see the groups objection to it.

Yeah...that's makes it even more sickening. As a society we seem to have no clue as to what's right and wrong anymore. Nothing's out of bounds because we have no boundry's anymore.

The “PC” clowns making the complaint need to “get a live”. The woman plays the part wonderfully and the add is wonderfully funny, if a little off color.

I know it is just a joke and not to be taken seriously.

I do recall being just a little bit uncomfortable seeing it tho. Maybe just a little over the line.

They also have ads with a woman making a pass at the Gecko, so what! Get over it, there are far more serious problems all around us than a dumb commercial.
