A Short, Open Letter To GEICO About Their Pig Commercial

GEICO, how could you?

Your lizard is fine. Tired, but harmless. This pig though, he’s harmful. His shrill little “whee” rings in our ears long after we turn off Bloomberg or CNBC.

And the worst part is that after watching this commercial several times, we still weren’t sure exactly what was being advertised. We actually had to pay attention to understand — tragic.

Moreover, the fact that this is the second commercial GEICO has made featuring this “Maxwell the Pig” character is appalling.
