The time to ditch "FLO" is at hand. It was cute for a week,  now the ads are so irritating I hit mute as soon as I see her.She and the Gecko can retire together.

I agree. I hate Flo's smirky orange headed face. I mute or change channels now. After reaching a new low for insurance commercials with Michael Buffer's "BUNDLEEEEEEEEEEEE" in 2013, I completely turned off Flo. "I'll Stand By You" is terrible. Rate suckers are terrible. "Sprinkles are for winn...I meant losers" is terrible. Putting Maury Povich in a commercial made it even worse!
That talking box needs to be crushed into a garbage dispenser as well.

 FLO MUST GO!
As long as she enjoys the go, goes commando, or goes with the flo, or let's herself go.
Anyway is fine with me.
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

eh, aren't we all like, a dozen or so commercials past this point already? this topic would probably have been better after the first 3-5 flo commercials. just be happy we no longer see the creepy ventriloquist dummy halloween commercial.i remember looking around at reviews of it when that one started airing and parents everywhere were complaining as it gave kids nightmares and scared them.

pretty sure it's a bad commercial when that happens. at any rate though, yeah, i've long since agreed to this topic. get rid of the creepy sea hag already. no one loves you, flo! no one wants to see you be uber creepy by single handedly voice acting your entire family on thanksgiving (well, that and the occasional turkey thieves that you sometimes here about on the news around that time of the year. >.> it happens). and no one EVER wants to see you're super creepy ventriloquist dummy commercial that scares little children EVER again.

I'm thankful that her ads never bothered me. I even like that one sarcastic gum chewing character she has in that nutty professor type gathering.

Flo should have went with the "flo" after introducing Michael Buffer to the advertising world. "Bundleeeeeeeeeeee" was what I called the worst commercial in television history (when it aired in 2013) due to its horrible loud noise that went on and on and on, Flo's stupid look, and that stupid fake-looking microphone. I almost went to Progressive directly to complain. The negative reviews were off the charts, everywhere you looked there were bad reviews.
I'll Stand By You was just as BAD! "YEAAAAHHH!!!!" Uh, no!!
Maury Povich made it worse. Why use a trash talk show to hawk insurance?

Obviously the worst commercial ever would be Charter Spectrum's rappers that made me want to throw the TV out my two-story apartment (thankfully they are extinct now), but for a LONG time it was Progressive's Let's Get Ready commercial.

YES! Flo NEEDS to go. Especially after seeing they ring Sonic into their sh*tty commercials, and shamelessly prancing Maury Povich out onto their set. It's bad enough that Sega had to drag Sonic's name, and reputation through the mud with Progressive, but Maury Povich is a uy half as bad as Jerry Springer who shouldn't be in commercials PERIOD!

I have NO idea why Progressive continues with her slop. If I was some big wig at the company I'd say It's time for a different direction with out marketing." Sorry if the actress that plays Flo will be out of a job, but oh well. (Kind of sucks for her, any new gig she will ALWAYS be known as "Flo.")

And I would think the majority of viewers is getting tired of her...I stress "I would think." Who knows, there are plenty of dumbed down people watching TV now.

*On a sidenote, I am seeing a little less of Jan in the latest Toyota ads, hope that trend sticks. Oh and I did see Jan in a late night rerun of The Office a few weeks ago, very brief scene - she played a receptionist but seemed...um, a little mentally challenged. LOL

Every insurance company spokesperson is annoying. Flo, Allstate guy, Farmers, Geico. The General is about the least annoying one. Flo is by far the worst though.

Flo should be sat in front of a camera. She should lean forward a bit, look directly into it and say…

“”” Hi I’m Flo. That’s not my real name. I know you know that. I also know that head bands, puffy read lips, and chunky women went out with the 60’s. But we are trying to reach out to 60’s people, especially the men.

Now... We would just like to insure your car. And your boat. And your house. If you pogo, slip, slide, skid, walk or move in any manner we can write a policy for you. In fact, even if you have been in a comma for the last year, we are interested.

When you call the 800 number the first question to you is “are you insured?” “How much do you pay?” then our price will be 0.5% lower.

If you aren’t insured and haven’t been shopping our prices rise by 10%.

So give us a call today and we’ll gladly take your cash for a policy we may or may not honor.

If you don’t understand this kind of honesty… FOD. With sprinkles.”””

We need more ad's like this. How much? What do I get?

Some cringeworthy videos of the actress that plays Flo.

Stand Up comedy.


It must suck after years of hard work, long hours, dropping a ton of money in college - you get that degree and the commencement speech is from....FLO!

I've seen that Bad Bundle Joke ad about two or three times the past couple days. I'm SICK OF IT!!!! Talk about NOT FUNNY!!
F--- off Progressive!
We hate your friggin commercials!

EDIT: I'm shocked that Flo didn't do the commencement speech just to yak for 9 minutes about car insurance. Maybe she should have brought that horrible talking box as well, which in my opinion needs to be crushed into a garbage can.
