What's Trending at 5:30, Tuesday, October 8th / Conversation

Posted: Updated:
Augusta, GA -

 Time for what's trending at 5:30...
  Parents, you have a choice between sharing pictures of your child or children online, and protecting their privacy.
 Experts say it's important to have an online strategy to keep them safe.
  On one hand, parents want friends and families to see cute photos and hear updates about the kids.
 On the other, there are big concerns about privacy and safety online.
  Experts do say every household should have a set of rules as to what is acceptable and what is not.

It's only Tuesday... Unfortunately.
 But we're about to take a look at the infectious, some would say annoying, new ad that plays in many offices and households on Hump Day. Paula Harris with the story.

This camel-wanders around an office camel, "c'mon, I know you can hear me. mike, mike, mike, mike, mike, asking a simple question."

Camel, "uh oh, guess what day it is? guess what-day-it-is. ahhhh? anybody."

pestering--until finally getting the answer he wants, "Leslie, guess what day it is? it's hump day(woo-hoo!)"

Call it hump day "hysteria".

Geico's quirky camel commercial has been viewed nearly 16-million times on
you-tube, "hump day-yeahhhh!" and, the parodies and re-posts

"guess what day it is!" are nearing 50-thousand.  "C'mon you can hear me".

Here, a family re-enacts the entire commercial this line needs to be re-tracked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
At vernon center middle school in Vernon, Connecticut the hump day hype became such a distraction, student-Jacob Ruggerio, "they do it every day"

They had to ask some of the kids to tone it down.

Student, Brooke Lewis, "everybody's walking around in the hallways and
saying it's hump day in that weird voice".

The school superintendent telling ABC, this is something that happens in
every middle school in the country every day.

As for Geico-they say their creative team focused on what would make anyone
happyand as soon as the camel idea was born ,they knew they were on to
something....but, for a company that's keen on the animal kingdom the mammal--known as camel-might be the biggest hit of them all.

"Guess what day it is?! , hump day, yeah!"
