Alright, I think it's fair to say that these Flo commercials are extremely hated by everyone here. That being said, imagine if they took this one...
Just let "Darrell" continue to tell the tale himself and instead of Flo butting her annoying self into it, maybe a couple of passing backpackers say "oh look it's bigfoot", to which he responds with his "My name is.." line

I don't hate Flo.

I don't particularly like her either, but I don't hate her.

There are much MUCH worse commercials on TV for me to spend my hatred on.

Like the Peloton yuppie hipster douchebags for instance.

I don't even bother to mute the Flo commercials.

Sadsquatch? Angry Progressive should stay with Flo Mo and Gay Jamie and their simple minded approach to selling insurance.  Leave the Sasquatch to Jack Links!

I never minded Flo. In fact, I always kinda liked her. Some of her commercials are better than others, though.

Same here.

The Pro-Flo ads often times mock her a bit and I appreciate that kind of self-deprecation in a product spokesperson.

The ads I mainly hate are the ones in which the actors or spokespeople try to act like hot sh*t.

Nah i hate all buffoons equally--its a crutch for non-creative adtards to base any kind of schmaltz and just let a Gecko-Emu or female (Flo) or male (Pat) clown schlep their way through 30 or 60 seconds and then throw the brand at the end--its the WORST and u just know theres a lot of self-back patting on how CLEVER their 'creative' is

Probably in the minority, here....but the caveman commercials just absolutely grate on my last nerve. Always thought they were the dumbest ever.
That's all I have to say about that.

Some of the Flos are low-level annoying, but mostly they just go by for me.

They brought back this from 4 years ago. Honestly, I missed this commercial. https://www.ispot.tv/ad/AfS_/progressive-flotection

I don't understand how anyone can say they don't mind Flo...By law we have to pay for insurance, we shouldn't have to be subjected to them insulting us with our own money. Now, if anyone doesn't mind the OTHER insurance idiot I would be shocked.

If we call Darryl "Big Foot", can we agree to call Flo "Lard Ass"?
