What is the Pig saying in Geico Commercial?
Okay, I've watched enough of the pig on the zip line in the Geico commercial...and still can't understand what it is saying. Pig latin?
Sooo weird it just came on and now that I know what he says when he said it it was clear as day. I didn't know either before I looked it up
This Little Piggy poem
This little piggy went to market,
This little piggy stayed at home,
This little piggy had roast beef,
This little piggy had none.
And this little piggy went...
"Wee wee wee" all the way home...
Nosila, thanks...other than "weeeeeeweeweeeee", just could not understand the phrase. Obviously the ad agency who created the commercial felt the pig spoke clearly! Guess my ear is more atuned to the lizard.
I'm going to hedge my bets that this will be one of the most important threads of 2012. ;)
LOL, I actually rewound the DVR yesterday to figure out what he was saying.
Pure adrenalin was what I thought.
Is rewound the right way to say it?
Hey, "INeedMoreCowBell," and to think I'm the same person who started the thread on the Star atop the Hill! Diversified or what.......sure wish Russ Long would read that topic on air, it is shared local history.
I got a kick out of the first commercial when the pig was saying "weeeee" all the way home. This new one makes zero sense. Is he taking the zip line home? I highly doubt it. A better commercial would be the pig at work, talking normally. Then the clock strikes 5pm, and they show him exiting the building screaming ."
I know, I am REALLY over thinking this :)
If you play the pig commercial backwards you hear "flo is dead, flo is dead."
Pig rules. And he's not saying weeeeee, he is saying "Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeere's the tuna?"
It took me a few viewings to understand what the pig was saying as well. Funny as Nosila said, it seems clear as a bell now. Love the pinwheels.
There is a third word after pure adrenalin................................is everyone missing that?
Got any idea what it is?
He looks at the guy across from him and says "Pure.. Adrenalin" Weeeeee.. wee weee lol
Here is the clip. I am not sure what that third word is. It doesn't sound like a word to me.
It's not a word. He snorts. Pure...adrenalin....snort.
It's funny all of you go to all the trouble of rewinding,.etc....next time just turn on the CC in your TV, that's what I do especially when I watch old british shows that are so difficult to understand sometimes..... :)
I hear that commercial every night during Jeopardy. I listened closely and it's "Pure Adrenalin", then a snort, and then back to "weeee".
I agree it's not all that good in what it's selling. After the pig is done, the announcer talks about how Geico is now "mobile" with their new phone app. I guess the zip line is supposed to say "you're mobile".
ET - spent years with Brits, understand exactly what they're saying without the captioning, including even what their words mean. But still don't think we'll "understand". ;-)
Just to finish off EXACTLY what the pig is saying, it's "Pure Adrenalin," then "*snort*" and then kind of under his breath, "OK." I'm surprised this ad was approved with that being so hard to understand. (I found the answer here after googling it because it was frustrating not to know. But I have to agree that once you know what he's saying, it's easy to understand).
All I know is when that commercial comes on I immediately mute it, he has got to go................HOME! So annoying, to me and hubs especially at 4:30 in the morning! UGH!
Hmmm...I didn't realize it was hard to understand. Maybe it was written for people like me, ya know the ones that spend their days with three and six year olds! LOL.
The part the confuses me is the app, is it about insurance or is it just the piggy going weeeeeee! Our dentist has a spongebob app and all spongebob does is bubble and giggle, I could probably tolerate the pig better than spongebob!
After reading these, I finally got it. Those of you who said the 3rd word is a *snort* are correct but following the snort there is a subtle laugh, kinda like "heh, heh". So it goes like this, "Pure adrenaline.....*snort*, heh heh!"
OMG I thought it was just me I turned volume all the way up....and still couldnt figure out? PURE ADRELINE U SAY? We shall c said the blind man Lol
Ahhh but we are all talking about it and know it is an ad for Geico so I guess that means a huge success. Now matter how annoying a commercial the aim is to have the viewer remember it, comment on it, laugh, hate, or anything but be indifferent.
Hey,thanx (major) to all who submitted to this thread. My mom,her BFF,and I were trying our damnedest to figure that pig out! BTW,the pig's first appearance (in the car) was cute as hell! It's still one of my favorites.
I have tried and tried to understand what Lil Mr. Piggiee is saying....It is a big relief to finally know......now I can finally rest......being that apparently I have NO LIFE!!! I do really like the part where they show Mr. Piggie's feet wiggleing around....pretty funny...HA!! One more thing, what is the pig's name? I can't remember from the first commercial.....
I've been trying to figure this out for a week...thanks for the answer, have to admit v. disappointed. Should have gone with the "when pigs fly" angle.
Sadly this post made me search for the transcript and I learned that the pig is named Maxwell. According to many of the sites Red Zone is right with the end followed by weeeeeeeeeeee.
LOL. Look up how many pages are devoted to the 'Geico' pig on Facebook.
He's so cute. I think of him and pork rinds at the same time, though.
I prefer the early AFLAC duck commercials especially the one with Yogi Berra
I've rewound it over and over and still can't understand what he's saying. Somebody should have noticed that before they released it.
EUREKA! It worked! Marketing genius at it's best!
EVERYONE is talking about our pig "ADRENALINE" and knows what we are selling!
cbel, thank you that one is my favorite!!
Would have been fun to observe the ad team as they brainstormed to come up with a concept and commercial for their client, Geico. I feel the same about the agency who creates the M&M commercials...it must be fun meetings.
I thought it was adrenalin at first and tend to agree...But, the word "beer" came to mind also. "Beer and adrenalin" would be the only way you'd get me on a zip line on a ski slope. I checked out the one on Heavenly Mountain(Lake Tahoe) in September and decided you'd have to be drunk and stupid to trust that thing!
Third word sounds like PERFECT. I first felt the first word was scared? And I have good hearing--it's on every 15 min. or so--but I still won't go GEICO--
I thought his first word was "hey there", just spoken really fast. Whatever, I'm getting alot of mileage out of the "WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE"
Sounds to me like pure adrenaline then a snort and a laugh. The weeeeeeeeee is very annoying to me.
Yea, it is "pure adrenaline" snort, then heh heh. I must speak pig, because it's clear to me. I'm putting that down now as my answer for do you know a second language?
Well it's doing it's job isn't it...It's getting millions of people talking about GEICO!!
To me it sounds more like "Beer" which I would relate to "FEAR" instead or "Pure" Adrinaline. "Fear & Adrinaline"..... I hate the Pig Commercials.. I like the Geico (Lizard) Much better
It's barely understandable and thus it is apparently a commercial success for Geico.
Now watch some advertising agencies drive this peculiarity into the ground.
I want to know what they say at the end of the Play Station commercial. It sounds like they are saying "rexextensial" but that makes no sense.
I don't know what the pig is saying but I love it. Having just gone zip lining at the age of 72, I can feel for that man who appears to feel about like I did. Not like the pig who is having a great time.
If you go to Geico's site and scroll down on the right, you can get a free ring tone of the pig doing the Weeeeeeee.
You're welcome. ;)
I actually guessed at "Pure---Adrenaline" but it is still hard to understand. I can't believe there are so many people out here wanting to know! I love it.
Gee.. I struggled with this one for a long time too, re-playing the pig's comments to his zip-line buddy many times. At first I thought it said "You're Amica then" but since that's a competing company, it didn't seem likely. I then went online, and found the audio in the YouTube video is much better than the one being broadcast over the networks. I think Geico needs to get the gecko to teach the pig how to talk clearly... it reflects poorly on a company when even their commercials can't be understood.
he does not say anything after he says pure adrenaline. he laughs then takes off. come on people
To Gerjon. That's what I heard to. I find it funny that a little piggy would mention beer though
he says pure adrenaline then a pause then says for a pig
lol, i thought I was the only person obsessed about finding out what that dang pig was saying on the zip line!!! worst commercial ever?? perhaps...but it sure does keep Geico on the mind.....genius?? maybe....
i thought he said "yeah....i can handle it" but i also thought it may be "yeah..pure adrnealine" but i believe mostly it is the "yeah... i can handle it"
The first time I saw the commercial I thought he said to the bearded man...
"Beard.... A turn on"..... "weeeeeee, we, we, we, weeeeeee"
I kept hearing 'Paris Eternity....Perfect. But I kept listening and did finally
hear 'Pure Adrenaline...Perfect'. Needing to know kept me listening. Smart
I agree with the last post. I think they edited the ad making the audio much much clearer,
I just saw a new version of this commercial where they retaped the pig saying "pure adrenaline." It's from a different angle, so it's definitely a new shot. They must be reading these message boards!
Snow I heard it clear as day the first time too.. but like you said, I live with a 2 year old who is my only social contact throughout the day lol!
The voice-over for the little piggy has been made more understandable
in mid-January. Geico and its ad agency have gone all weak-kneed on
us. The cowards!
I believe its, " Pure...Adrenalin". I would like to see a new commerical with maxwell and the little green Gecko together. What do you think?
I think the ad agency recently "re-did" the voiceover. I couldn't understand it the first dozen times I saw it, now it's clear as can be. And didn't his voice get lower???
I finally looked this up on on Google and came to this page after viewing this commercial over a hundred times. I was able to barely make out what seemed like "Adrenaline" but could not for the life of me figure out the word he said before it. I'm glad to find out that I wasn't the only one! LOL
I don't know if the AD agency meant it to be but they got me to talk about it. :)
ok - i thought it was beer adrenaline birthday. Perhaps he went on a zip line for his special occasion
Geico finally revised the commercial. In the first batch of commercials (from December), the pig says "pure, adrenaline" but the pig says the word "adrenaline" too fast and too nasal for anyone to understand it. In the second batch of commercials (from after January 22d), they told the pig to say the word "adrenaline" SLOWER so the audience could understand it. It's the pig's fault for not speaking more clearly the first time.
I could'nt understand what he said in the earlier brocastings. But Geico obviously noticed and made the pig speak more clear..
I'm glad it wasn't just me who couldn't understand the Pig. One day it was CLEAR! Guess they got tired of the complaints....Just happy it wasn't just me.
You people are crazy and obsessed.... The pig clearly squeals ...."Weeeeee"....then he calls his buddy's name
I'm pretty sure that they cleaned up the way he says Pure Adrenaline. I can understand it every time now. I did get a new TV though but I think they realized their error and fixed it. Unlike that new fake commercial with the pug after the Doritos.
Lol!!!! My husband, son, and myself kept replaying and replaying. I said screw this I'll Google it. Thanks. Haha!
I thought it was beer. a turn on. Makes sense to me.
I thought he said "Dude, it's a turn on". I think someone else thought that too. I can definately hear a difference in the commercials leading me to believe they did revise them.
I do love his sweet little feet waving in the air. I stop what I'm doing everytime it comes on and watch.
The pig looks like he is having a good time. I would like to hear a happier noise. His "wheeeeeeeee" to me is a very sad noise. I love all animals and I want to see them all happy. Maybe a silly Cockney expression would be good. I like the pig better in the car commercial, but I want to see a happier expression from the driver. I am very strong on all animals because I feel when all the love in the world has failed, through our animals this all the love we have left.
Everyone thinks the pig is saying PURE ADRENALIN ... But what he is actualy saying is .....FEAR... I'M CHANNELING .
mEANNING THAT HE IS SO AFRAID OF DOING WHAT HE IS DOING THAT ALL HE CAN DO IS YELL weeee weeee weee
Other than Weeeeeeeeeeee
He says "Hey Gary"...."Do I turn you on"
This is the most annoying commercial I've heard since their last stupid commercial.
I think its pure adrenaline & then not bad then weeeeeeeeeeeweeweeweeeeeeeeee
As the Advertiser intended, I listened to the damn fool thing about 15 times trying to figure out what the porker was saying. After I decided, it turns out I was mistaken. By the time a friend got me properly advised, I'd forgotten what they were selling, and furthermore didn't give a rat's rear end. GEICO WHO?
I thought the pig said the same thing Ned Beatty said on "Deliverence"!
Weeeeee Weeeeeeeeeeee Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
They have changed it slightly, and now you can hear him say "Pure, adrenalin". Before, it was hard to understand (not for me as I am blind and rely on my hearing to identify the actor and speeches). They have altered it twice... now you can really hear what he says.
"Pure adrenaline.....*snort*, heh heh!" - got in on the third or fourth viewing - now loving the downhill race, too!
And how about the latest commercial with the pig racing down the hill on that skateboard type thing ...I listened real close in case it was going to be another case of mumbled words..."heads up" was pretty clear...wish the meaning of their commercials was that clear.
Wish they'd make bacon out of the stupid pig
It not pure. It's Pierre Adrenaline weeeeeeeeeeeeee
I just saw this commercial on TV and had to Google it to find out what he said. After reading everything here and wanting to hear for myself, I replayed the commercial for about 30 minutes and just couldn't be sure. For some reason, however, I now feel the need to buy car insurance.
This is my favorite commercial.
My little Pomeranian loves it too.
He pounces up and down and gets
so excited when the little piggy comes
Why did Geico change the name of the pig from Russell to Maxwell? The first commerical with the pig in the car and she calls him Russell, then later they changed it to Maxwell.
No.. she called him Maxwell in the car when he has his head out the window, saying, weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
Just watched on youtube to double check myself and she says, "Max", then "Maxwell"
What does the second STEWARDESS say to the PIG as her parting remark??? I can understand the pig, but not her!!!!
Does anyone else think the 2 stewardesses from that commercial are the actresses that played the 2 female Army MPs from the Bill Murray movie Stripes ?
The movie stripes was 32 yrs ago , they don't look that old.
They might look like a Mentos commercial, but not Stripes.
As for what she says, I think it's:
"I bet he just Googles and posts without looking. Next thing you know he'll want a free home makeover and see a ring around the moon..."
The female MPs in Stripes were Sean Young of Blade Runner and Ace Ventura fame and the other one's name escapes me, but she was in the original Halloween and Carrie in addition to Stripes.
Thank goodness someone asked about the second stewardess (waitperson??) I get confused ... on the flying pig commercial. I have listened to the ending so many times I am sick of seeing it. I did love the first little piggy commercial with the little guy sticking his head out the window and going : "Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee...!" He is a little cutie. I use the "This little piggy" thing when I am putting my parrot to bed at night.. I use her toes just like my Dad did to me eons ago... except the one little piggy is eating a Hostess Cupcake in the newer version.
When I first saw this commercial I thought GEICO was poking fun at Alec Baldwin
(the incident where he wouldn't shut down his Kindle before take-off ;he was playing "Words with Friends"). I am still not sure they are not, tongue-in-cheek, referencing this incident. He is well known to be a "pig".
Didn't he call his daughter "a selfish little pig" on that voice mail that got leaked to TMZ or whoever?
Help--what does the stewardess say before she says 'when pigs fly?' I do not understand why the pig would say 'did she really say that?' I feel so silly paying so much attention to this commercial!
I still think they look like the MPs from Stripes! Look closely, they're older but hiding it well.
It's the AllState ad with the creepy painter that creeps me out. It shows evil paintings from his past recollections of people and then one of his AllState agent, as a white knight and then he speaks with the black Allstate speakers voice and then they show what in other commercials is the agent --- a black man.
What AllState, black knights considered bad?
If you are reffering to the dark haired stewardess; last staement it is "Ill believe that when pigs fly."
Figured out the white knight ---- the spokesman is Dennis Haysbert and he is the spokesman, not the agent. ah, all is well.
The pig said,"That's my Geico Insurance ID card sir' It's degital, pretty cool right?"
Keep seeing the Snickers commercial with the ladies working out with the football player. When he says "whats my name" what do the ladies say? Cant understand them.
