New GEICO Commercial Bears Scrutiny

Bare bears exposed

Geico, noted for its Little Piggy crying Wee, wee, wee all the way home and wood chuck chucking woodchuck ads faced their first setback.  Officials have confirmed that the latest commercial was banned by the FCC.

In the commercial the Robert Stack impersonator asks, "Does a bear s#&* in the woods?" 

The commercial was opposed by Bear rights groups who argued that the commercial was demeaning to bears and invades their privacy.  

Geico also scrapped plans for a spot that asks “Is the Pope Italian” when they discovered that he is not.
