Geico is known for using animals to promote its product - that is nothing new. The cute little Gecko with a British/Aussie accent can be somewhat endearing. I can think of a couple commercials, at least, that feature him in an interesting way.
But lately...lately they've turned to a pig. I don't get it, like at ALL. But, I was willing to overlook it, because who cares, really, until I saw this atrociousness yesterday.
We've all been on dates with pigs before; ladies, am I right? I was on a first date once when the dude, after I offered him some of my tots, said, "What, are you trying to fatten me up for the wedding?" Gross.
Anyway - I have been sitting here for a good half hour trying to figure out the point of this ad, but to no avail. It's asinine - why are you using your Geico application to summon a tow truck while strategically parked on a bluff overlooking the city?
I just can't figure out why this woman is on a date with an actual pig - the commercial where he's on an airplane is one thing, but having him on a date with a woman who seems all too desperate for his affections is quite another.
The genuine atrocity here is your absolute lack of enjoyment and sense of humor in life. I can see clearly that you're one of these stiffs who probably wears a suit everywhere, looks down their nose at everyone, and would even put the most proper Brit to shame.
Not everything in life has to "make sense". Quite often, the true humor in life is found when you realize that something makes absolutely no sense at all, and yet, there is an element of enjoyment to it.
You, my dear friend, should truly reconsider your outlook on life and realize that your criticism of advertisements leaves much to be desired from you, both as a critic and as a human being.
This website blows. The ads you depict are honestly funny, and they are made to get the attention of whoever is watching, so that they check out Geico. If you think they're so awful, I would like to see you pitch an even better idea.
