One Million Moms has filed a complaint with insurance company Geico after it aired a commercial featuring a pig on a date with a woman. The conservative organization alleged that the commercial promotes bestiality and is "repulsive and unnecessary."

"Geico has succeeded in offending its customers with this inappropriate advertisement. One Million Moms has received numerous complaints because Geico's new commercial plays with the idea of bestiality. Airing a commercial with an animal in it will surely grab children's attention, but this is a horrible commercial for families to see. Geico does not have our children's best interest in mind," the organization said on its website.

It is launching a new campaign against Geico in order to have the commercial pulled from the air immediately. But this is not the first time One Million Moms has taken offense at a commercial featuring an animal and human "making out" or flirting.

The ad, promoting Skittles, featured a woman and a walrus making out, with the idea being that the walrus is actually the woman's boyfriend just not being himself. At the time, One Million Moms called for it to be pulled since its "target market is children."

Skittles' maker, Wrigley, defended the commercial in a statement to the Huffington Post.

"Skittles has won millions of fans with its unique and unexpected advertising. As a fun-loving candy brand, we never intend to offend people with our irreverent humor and don't believe this imaginary situation promotes harm or inappropriate behavior with animals," the statement read.

Most people don't seem to have a problem with Maxwell the pig's behavior in the commercials.

"Yes, I love him!" tweeted Ashley Laurel.

"I find the Geico ad with the talking pig on a date with a lady with their car broken down… a mite creepy. But hey, to each their own," added Craig Gary Phillips.

In the newest Geico ad, Maxwell is pulled over by the police.
