The hump day commercial may have Geico feeling the love, some teachers are growing getting tired of their students echoing phrases from the popular commercial, UPI reported on Oct. 6.
In Connecticut, some teachers have gone so far as to ban their students from quoting the hump day commercial. The problem, apparently, is that students in class and wandering hallways are mimicking the hump day commercial in the weird voice featured in the bit, which some school officials say is disruptive.
So what exactly is this hump day commercial and why is it so appealing to the juvenile crowd?
In the hump day commercial, a camel — get it? — walks into an office building as if he actually works there and repeatedly asks employees what day it is. Finally, a woman named Leslie responds to the camel, telling him, “It’s hump day.”
The hump day camel then bellows happily while the commercial cuts to two musical comedians telling a joke about how Geico customers are happier than a camel on Wednesday. The hump day commercial ends with the camel saying, “Hump Daaayyyy! Yeaaaaah!”
While the hump day commercial may be catchy, it’s also become annoying to some.
In Connecticut, Fox News reported that teachers in the town of Vernon are cracking down on students who mimic the hump day commercial, although an official school-wide or district-wide policy has not been issued, contrary to some beliefs.
