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.
I hate that nasty pig. I would like to see him served up with an apple in his mouth rather than out on a date with a human woman. Bestiality is not only disgusting but also against the law and totally immoral.
I would think that a large company like Gieco could spend their advertisement money more wisely and stop with the nasty pig. The Gecko is adorable and I never find myself wanting to change the channel when he is on.
The other comments on this page obviously come from people with very low standards. Please don't pay them any attention.
get over it, it's a commercial...a FUNNY commercial. LOTS OF PEOPLE love Maxwell so truthfully your little comments will really make no difference, but seriously, it's a commercial. What, are you gonna have issues with the Camel now cuz he says "hump day"? which is one of the funniest commercials i've seen in a long time......what cedwardsmedia said is right on the money.
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.
Everybody I know hates that nasty pig.. Their is nothing funny about him and I turn the channel every time that it comes on.
You should really work on your sense of humor. There is nothing funny about that pig. He is annoying and would look much better covered in BQ sauce and served up with some potato salad.
