Geico might be known for its little lizard, but it's the camel that's stirring up trouble.
You might have seen their latest commercial. A camel walks through a workplace asking people what day it is. He's super excited about it being hump day. Funny, right?
Teachers at least one Connecticut middle school aren’t fans, because the kids are screaming "HUMP DAY" in the halls, students told HLN affiliate WFSB. They say it's distracting, and they want it to stop.
While teachers at Vernon Center Middle School told students to stop the silliness and banned the phrase from the classroom, rumors online exploded that the Vernon Township School District superintendent banned the phrase district wide.
However, Dr. Mary Conway tells HLN that is simply not the case.
"The school did not ban it. The district did not ban it. No one has ever banned it except two teachers in two different classrooms," she said. "That’s just good middle school classroom management."
How bad could the phrase be? Apparently not bad enough to be banned district-wide. But HLN's Raising America still put it to the test. Using the same tactics in the video, could we distract and annoy people across the CNN Center? Watch and find out!
