Maxwell the Geico pig shows off the insurance company’s cellphone app. But the ad is rubbing the group One Million Moms the wrong way.

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.

One Million Moms wants Geico to pull its add that features a girl flirting with a pig, which they say is 'disgusting.'

“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.”

Geico has not responded to the criticism by one conservative Christian group claiming their latest ad promotes bestiality.

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.

I guess I just don't get what there is to be worked up about the commercial... sounds like a pointless argument.

What about the skittles commercial where the woman actually makes out with a walrus?

Where were they on that one?

every time I hear of this group, OMM, I think there are some women out there with too much time on their hand and too many crappy thoughts in their heads.  Making the world a better place is an awesome goal...but they seem to go about it so negatively.
