Watching them is a bit moronic.

That said, I saw it once and found it a bit perverted.

I’ve been told by a number of conservatives here that I’m not conservative because I love Family Guy. Oh well. Never said I was a saint.

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

I agree completely with your observations. Television and the commercials sponsoring the flotsam and jetsam appearing on the screen are evidence of a degraded culture. It accelerated with the beatnik and hippie era of the 60s and got even worse (as if that were possible) when urban blacks started the hip hop and rap "culture" which was, sadly, embraced by suburban whites.

Furthermore, GEICO stands for Government Employees Insurance Company. That tells me everything I need to know about this vile outfit and their equally foul advertising. Disgusting doesn't begin to describe the "vast wasteland" we have in 2013. EWTN and Fox Business are about the only channels worthwhile, aside from an occasional classic, patriotic movie on TCM.

I don’t see the problem.
All men are pigs.

My wife and I both thought the commercial was creepy. If they were going for an "all men are pigs" vibe; then maybe it had some merit. Even though the commercial creeped me out, I've never had a problem with Bugs Bunny dressing in drag to distract Elmer Fudd; so I guess I have a double standard on this issue.

Even though I frequently find the commercials for Geico and Progressive funny, the ads do nothing to get me to buy their insurance.

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

No, there are five of you.

Look. If the woman were in a barnyard rolling around in the mud with a snorting pig, then allegations of "support" for bestiality might be in order.

But for Pete's sake, she's sitting in a car with a talking pig that drives. Save the outrage for when it will count.

Comparing the AFA with racist Hate Groups like La Raza (The Race), NAACP, ACLU, is quite offensive.

There is something wrong w. a commercial showing a woman getting aroused by a pig.

These women probably have a very unhappy home life and need to find SOMETHING to be ‘outraged’ over and this is what they have found.

if they did they’re homework they would trace it all back to The Muppets.

Didn’t Kermit the Frog make out with human women on his show? What about Miss Piggy always ‘chasing after’ the frog.

An anthropomorphized pig...I remember reading these books as a kid...

>>Freddy, The Detective by Walter R. Brooks - Freddy, the Pig, sets up a detective agency to solve crimes on the farm. The rooster is the judge at the trials. A jail is created in the barn. From 1927 to 1958, Walter R. Brooks wrote 26 Freddy the Pig books. They are hilarious! Some unfortunately are now out of print. If you have a child with a creative streak these books are perfect for the imagination.

In the first ad they showed the pig going whee! whee! all the way home and he seemed at first like a young child. Then he spoke again and sounded more like a hip teenager

When I was just a little kid, my Mother told me her favorite book was “Freddy Goes to Florida”. I later found it in the library and read it. It was indeed a good book.

yes they had a whole bunch of Freddy books in the kids’ room of my library. Wikipedia on Brooks: “The first works Brooks published were poems and short stories. His short story “Ed Signs the Pledge” about a talking horse was the basis for the 1960s television comedy series Mister Ed (credit for creating the characters is given in each episode to “Walter Brooks”). His most enduring works, however, are the 26 books he wrote about Freddy the Pig and his friends. Boucher and McComas, for example, praised Freddy and the Spaceship, saying it “offers wit, sound structural plotting, genuine character-humor, and admirable English prose.””

Strange to me that it took this long for someone to call this weird commercial to account. Can you say ‘breakdown in society’ when something like this appears to be acceptable and/or funny.

I was getting worried about the denouement when I first saw it, but fortunately the pig played hard to get.

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

This add is just the next variation on the "When pigs fly" airline bit with the black guy playing straight man.

I'm a gekko fan but the pig has been a pretty successful (and funny) addition.

I thought it was creepy when the donkey fell in love with the dragon in the troll disney movie or vice versa. It is un-natural, natural being as God created because He is revealed through nature to pagans not having the Word and are judged accordingly. Just more subliminal abominations. If we do not warn pagans about immorality we are giving our ok in the eyes of God.

What else is not ok?

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.

Actually, these people need to go after Geico for the pig being a bad role model. Remember, it's a talking pig who's surfing the web on his smart phone, WHILE DRIVING!!! Danger, danger! No texting, no surfing while driving!

10 being the Trojan Twister vibrator commercial that always seems to run between 8-10AM on Sunday mornings.

Heh. When I was boy enamored of comic books in the early sixties, they almost always had ads on the back, inside cover for cylindrically-shaped, battery-operated vibrators.

There was usually a drawing of a very attractive woman using the thing to relieve neck stress. The results were claimed to be remarkable. I do remember thinking it an odd shape for massaging the muscle masses of the neck. But, then, those were more innocent days.

I rate the pig ad a 2 out of 10 on the offensivity scale -- but mostly for depicting men as actual pigs. I get beastly mad over that.
