A new GEICO commercial featuring their new mascot, Maxwell the pig, has pissed off the organization 'One Million Moms,' whose goal is to stop the entertainment media’s exploitation of children.
Here's what has them mad.
Monica Cole, director of One Million Moms, told ABC News:
“It was just a pretty sleazy type of commercial because the girl [in the commercial] was really disappointed when she realized they wouldn’t be able to pass the time alone together.
Kids are drawn to animals. That’s normal. Animals are cute. That’s why movies have animals that play the lead roles and the main parts. And it may be over their heads in terms of understanding the meaning behind it, but there’s a big concern when kids are being desensitized to this kind of thing.”
