GEICO pig on a date angers moms group

A self proclaimed children's advocacy group is upset with a recent GEICO television commercial, claiming it promotes bestiality.
One Million Moms wants the insurance giant to pull the ad, which features a woman apparently flirting with a talking pig -- the company's newest mascot -- after their car becomes stranded, The Daily Mail reported.
When Maxwell quickly locates a tow truck using his mobile GEICO application, the woman seems frustrated. She asks, "Oh, so that means we won’t be stuck up here for hours, with nothing to do?"
Maxwell brushes off her advances.
Monica Cole, director of One Million Moms, told ABC News the ad is offensive and promotes bestiality.
"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," the group said in a press release.
GEICO has not immediately responded to requests for comment.
