I’m not a prude and I think this commercial is awkward at best

Home - by - February 26, 2013 - 21:45 America/New_York - 37 Comments

You’ve seen the commercial. A woman sits in a pig’s convertible and regrets that a tow truck is coming to help with the broken down car a bit too quickly, implying that she wants to F*CK THE PIG! (Make no mistake, that is what the commercial implies.)

But GAWKER, the idiotic site that knee-jerkingly sides with everything decadent, is attacking a group that finds the commercial distasteful. The group believes that it makes bestiality seem normal.

I have to agree with the group. The first time I saw this commercial I made a cheese-sniffing face. There are ways to use animals in commercials that can be entertaining, but there is something about this one that is very off-putting.

Maybe the same exact script and premise could have worked with a different director. All I know is that this version didn’t work for me.

But all of this aside,  I’d like to go a little off topic.

Gawker should sit down with an imam and discuss this commercial and see what their position is. What makes the left so dangerously stupid is that they side with Muslims because all they know is that the right is  against Sharia.

    If they had used a normal guy in this commercial instead of a pig, it would have actually worked as planned. Or the caveman who used to be in all their commercials.

    I don’t get it? Why a pig? Is that their new company mascot or something?

    That and the dog, Brian on Family Guy dating stupid blonde women. And apparently he had a kid with a lowlife woman a while back. ick.

    I rarely see the Geico ad anymore because of all the “Progressive” commercials running every 5 minutes. But that’s okay, because it reminds me never to use Progressive Insurance.

    GEICO sucks anyway. They gave me a 1 year coverage on my MC and then charged me $20 more after the first year.

    All they are trying to do is soften us up, we now have lgjiqt next is pedofeelya and then beasteeallaity.
    This is all by design. With the left anything goes, the more the merrier, bring us all down to there level. What level of hell I don’t know, but that is where they want us.

    Yeah, there’s no mistaking the message. It’s like that Taco Bell commercial a while back with the chihuahua stalking the women in the grocery store with “Afternoon Delight” playing in the background. TB pulled that one right away. All it takes is a few angry phone calls. I wonder if the progtards would laugh if it was a guy sitting with a sow?

    Even if it wasn’t offensive, it’s still not funny.

    after seeing several hot women getting divorces from people like Tiger Woods and Seal.. and then take into account the Kardashian freaks. The reality is women usually pick douchebags or pigs.. and I’m not offended by the commercial, it just sort of fits everyday life. I call it poetic justice.

    At least one of the groups objecting to this ad is One Million Moms. I’m a member and they do a good job of bringing trash like this to our attention, so that we can send protest letters/emails to sponsors of the offending shows, or to the offending companies themselves. (I enjoyed writing my protest email to Geico. If it had been on paper, it might have started to smoke.)

    OMM is part of the American Family Association. Here’s the link to their website, if you want to learn more:

    I was looking out for you men when I called Procter and Gamble (or whoever it is that makes Tide laundry detergent). They ran an ad in which the dad jerks his daughters too short skirt off the clothesline and throws it in the trash only to have the girl retrieve it from the garbage and take it to mom to wash it. Cut to mom and daughter rejoicing when all the stains come out. Cut to daughter wearing unbelievably short skirt as she smilingly leaves to go to meet her friends, foiling dad’s attempt to be the head of the household.

    Tide made the dad look like a knuckle-headed and unnecessary member of the family; someone to be merely tolerated by the women in the house.

    I called Tide and told them it didn’t look good for them to be undermining parental authority and after 40 years of using their product I was done with them. Apparently I wasn’t the only one who noticed. They pulled the ad and sent me several coupons for free product.

    I think it’s very telling about the depths our culture has reached when even and educated, healthily-cynical scalliwag like BFH takes such an animated short (OK, it’s an advertisement, but that’s not the point) literally, due to bestiality.

    @Czar — OK, let’s just substitute a man for the woman and a sheep for the pig. Now do you think it’s such a stretch to imagine the not-so-veiled nod to bestiality? Either that or geico is having quite a laugh on us. I mean, after all, the gecko seemed human enough, right?

    How many of us made a “Ewe” face last week when we read about that girl that had had a 7 year “relationship” with her family dogs? The real jaw-drop was to learn that her parents knew about it and kept the dogs anyway.

    I guess where I’m going is that this is just another case of art imitating life.

    Y’know, I’m glad I do not have cable or any kind of access to tv, and all the crap that is on, whether shows, news or commercials.

    I get most of my info as to what is out there from sites like iOTW, AWD, Atlas Shrugs and other radical conservative blogs, and quite frankly, it’s enough to boil my blood, I don’t need the added aggravation of seeing this 24/7 on the television….AND having to pay for it!

    So now we’re taking COMMERCIALS seriously? Like muslims? Let’s take it to an extreme and outlaw EVERYTHING that ANYBODY might find offensive.

    Hell, if we do that, what would there be to watch on Super Bowl Sunday except the national anthem being slaughtered, nigga porn at halftime and maybe a little football?

    Better to coach kids not to take ANYTHING they see on TV seriously.

    As for Warren Buffet’s GEICO, they’ve done really well by me. The premium is consistently $100-200 below anyone else’s and that’s with two tickets and a fenderbender. Six months coverage in trial-lawyer-heavy SE FLA for $467.

    Geico jumped the shark with this one. Some of their commercials with the pig are mildly clever, but I like the gecko, especially some of his radio ads which are hilarious. My favorite TV ad is the one where he cruises along in his toy car and slides into the “employee of the month” parking spot.

    I’ve had Geico on my scooters for years and now have an estimate for everything else we insure that beats our State Farm by almost $300 per year. Our SF agent is working up a counter offer this week, though. Competition = good!

    Woman: It’s a dog I’ll have you know.

    When it comes to commercials, there are ways and then there are ways.

    A dozen or so years ago, who can remember, Fruit of the Loom did a commercial for men’s briefs. ‘Twas near the Yuletide and the briefs were brightly colored and patterned. Nice change from the traditional tightey whities of the time.

    The briefs were pegged to a clothesline which bounced slightly, causing the briefs to “dance” on the string. Music played, no voice over. If you did not identify the music, it was just a cute commercial.

    Unless you recognized the excerpt from “The Nutcracker”. I howled then and still chuckle every time I think of it.

    @Boobie — Once upon a time before a teenager named Brooke Sheilds asked in a come-hither voice, “Know what comes between me and my Calvin Klein Jeans? Nothing”, we used to be able to sit down with our kids and enjoy a prime time tee vee show without fear of it being interrupted by a couple talking (and nearly demonstrating!) the joys of KY Jelly, previews of an upcoming reality show “Sixteen and Pregnant”, or a woman coming on to a pig.

    There’s more money and talent(?) aimed at television advertising than the shows on which they advertise. The gauge of a “good” ad is its shock value, its memorability. That’s why the ads during the Super Bowl are considered the high water mark in tee vee advertising. Of course they’re taken seriously. And they create the norm of social morality. They should be taken seriously, so that when one slips in that ups the ante it should be questioned and rejected. If Geico’s marketing people behave predictably there is a strong probability we will be seeing more of the amorous antics of the woman as she hammers away at Maxwell’s romantic reticence. Gosh! I can’t wait to see the next installment. Blech.
