What is the deal with all the screaming goats in advertising right now? So far I have seen three different companies using them in commercials, two of them aired during the Super Bowl this year.
Then I saw the Geico scapegoat screaming goat ad, and really started to wonder if it was coincidence or if there was something I didn’t know about. Why have so many advertisers decided to use screaming goats to sell their products? I realize this is the Chinese Year of the Goat, but I’m still a little confused as to why they are screaming. Maybe it’s just because screaming goats are funny? This one particularly really makes me laugh. I know it’s silly, but I giggle every time.
