This one does not get a high rating on the hate scale but anytime the pig speaks it bugs me.
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

Ugh. Every Geico ad is a pain in my butt.
Is this love big enough to watch over me?
Big enough to let go of me

The end: pig-ass turns my stomach every time.

Makes me want to jump in the blackillac, run over a porker and file a claim.

Hasn't someone made bacon and pork chops out of that stupid pig yet? If not why not?

I'm so sick of anything "Geico", that I don't even know why I clicked on this thread.

This comment should be framed! I couldn't have even said it better myself. And his voice...I picture a freaky looking weirdo voicing him.

LOLLOLLOLLOL I liked Maxwell in his first commercial, the "wee wee wee" one. Now I wish he'd go away.

The first commercial was the only one that had any kind of context to link a pig to car insurance, if even as an obscure comparison. Obviously he got positive feedback as one of the more enjoyable characters of that particular campaign, so naturally by adtard math that means that everyone loves pigs and would want to see one in all sorts of everyday, insurance-related situations.

I'm just glad they stopped looking for ways to make him say "wee".

There's a local lawyer in these parts with a commercial where he knocks out a caveman in a boxing ring, then punches at a plastic gecko, "taking on big insurance". I'd love to see a spot where he sits down eating a plate of ham and eggs.

I'm surprised they get away with that.  We had a lawyer here (Berg Injury here, Carter-Mario elsewhere) who created an ad that looked just like the Allstate "Mayhem" commercials.

Well, I guess they're lawyers so they know how to get away with such things.  Maybe they just keep it going until Allstate or Geico or whoever issues a "cease and desist".

A number of law firms just recently had to pull the 'small parody for big insurance' ads they were sold for use as 'pre-packaged commercials'. The big boys wasted no time in ganging up on trademark infringers.
One had almost-'Flo' coming to see a lawer, all banged up and wearing huge, dark glasses, another had the Gecko with a bah over his head, there was one with ducks and, of course, Mayhem.
Ambulance-chasers and other low-life lawyers everywhere tried them out, but a few good lawyers surprised and shocked us by using them.

I miss when the pig would cry "WHEE-WHEE-WHEE-WHEEEEEEEE~!" Commercials where he doesn't do that make me painfully aware of how many fillers he has in his speech. Too many "uhms"...
