School asks kids to tone down 'Hump Day' camel impressions

VERNON, Conn. — The Geico "Hump Day" commercial has received over 15 million hits on YouTube, and has it be one of the most memorable commercials to date.

But the "Hump Day" catch phrase is causing problems at a middle school in Connecticut. So many kids were saying it all day, every day. They said it so much that it was disrupting class.

The principal took drastic steps and banned the phrase from school.

The term "Hump Day" stems from the idea of getting past the middle day of the work or school week, Wednesday, which brings us closer to the end of the week.

Most parents are not complaining about the principal's ban on the commercial. They say they will just be happy when it dies out.
