Angry parents are up in arms over a “repulsive” cellphone app commercial that they say promotes bestiality.
One Million Moms wants auto insurance firm Geico to pull its latest TV campaign in which a woman appears to be flirting with a pig.
The conservative Christian group that monitors children’s programming issued a statement to condemn the clip.
“The Geico marketing team may have thought this would be humorous, but it is disgusting to see how the company takes lightly the act of bestiality,” One Million Moms said in a statement.
The press release, which urges members to email their disgust to the firm, added that the advert was “repulsive” and “unnecessary.”
It was also a “horrible commercial for families to see,” the group said.
The commercial starts with Maxwell the Geico pig and the woman in a parked car on what appears to be a lover’s lane.
Not knowing the car has broken down, the woman seems keen to make out with the pig. But he is uninterested and instead shows her the Geico app and the game Fruit Ninjas on his cellphone.
Geico has not commented on the complaint.
