The chubby white guy and the happy young black wife . when they first got married ? He was excited about trying new things , like getting a new snowboard ???? This guy ? On a snowboard , ever ? I don't think so . And his wife is kind of a cutie , how did she end up with this idiot ? Trying to unwrap a Damn butterscotch candy ??
No way this relationship started , progressed and ended with this mixed marriage ? Which seems to be the new concept , let's show commercials with only mixed marriages and have the guy be an idiot .Every ad has the dopey inept man .
It grinds my gears

they DO share a certain nerdiness that , in REALITY, could potentially end in a one-off--but MAWWIAGE?
i agree its pretty unlikely--maybe his dad 'behavior' comes from an aneurysm

Progressive has hundreds of commercials.  Could you please post the video you're describing?  Is it somewhere else on CIH?  Thanks.  Smile

The adholes do seem to stress the prevalence of mixed couples in our society.  I don't really understand why they do that.


I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

They have identified that scenario as the best warm & fuzzy, feel-good, flavor-of-the-day way to make people think they care.

SSDD.

Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Thanks aka for posting.  I have seen this before, on CIH I think, and probably even commented on it.  I guess my memory for this stuff is fading.  Embarrassed

Yes, it's the fad that keeps on giving.  I want to see some progression here, folks!  How about interracial gay and lesbian couples?  Not Lesbos in Las Vegas who Look Like Sisters.  Not Paul from Verizon/Sprint and his handsome white husband in the background.

We have interracial couples and families galore.

We need more family integration.  How about incestuous interracial families?  Father-daughter, mother-son, bro and sis, bro and bro, sis and sis, and then we can progress to...

Farm animals?

CryBecause we ran out of white women and they say that's all they can do and it's my fault!

It doesn't bug me, but they seem to be shoved down our throats in a lot of recent ads (can't help not to notice) This ad. I now see a car commercial. a white guy, black girlfriend trying to get out of the city yapping about what they will do on their vacation. They almost slam into a big RV until the anti braking system kicks in. Guy briefly shocked...then continues to ramble on with their vacation plans. (stupid!) 

That just brings up another personal beef with ALL these ads highlighting the auto braking collision system  - seems to show how reckless the drivers are..speeding through congesting city streets like it's a race.
