Alright Flo, shut up ALREADY!!!!

I'm tired of these ads they were never funny at all.

Please give me back "thhhhhhhhhis isssssssssss howwwwwwwwwww liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiife shoooooooooould beeeeeeeeeee" anytime, at least that was more tolerable!

I have the same problem with Marsh ads here in the Midwest--with a different color being shown for all the corresponding items you can buy for "less green".  Seriously--who wants to buy blue food other than blueberries or Colts decorated cakes from Marsh--especially with their prices higher than any other Indianapolis grocery chain?  (I shop at Marsh only out of protest against Wal-Mart!)

Progressive is trying to make Flo and her supermarket the new pop culture icon/sensation (much like Geico's Gecko and cavemen). That's why Progressive is pushing her so hard.

Yeah, these ads escape me completely. Seems to me like Flo's been suffering OCD!

I just logged on to bitch about these.


"Motorcycle insurance, RV insurance, Boat insurance....honey, we don't have any of these...uhhh, ummm we do....we do?"

Who the flock buys all these toys without telling the spouse?
I mean, really, short of winning the lottery or getting an inheritance check from some unknown  dead relative,  who does this?  Very unrealistic.  I could do better  just by not writing this crap.

There's like eight commercials with her, now.

This is the "Flo" commercial that I like for some reason.  I'm amused when she senses the uncomfortable situation and yells "SURPRISE! - let's bag these up....."Embarrassed

Then the camera pans back to the couple........well, looks like the Mr is going to be sleeping on the couch.LOL I kind of like the Flo campaign....let's hope they don't string it on too long, though.

Let's face it, you really think Flo is hot and if you really despised her you would simply pick up the remote and change the channel. Her name is Stephanie Courney. I'd go for her customer sevice.Wink

Progressive certainly didn't do themselves any favors, here...the 'FloMercials' are on insti-mute.
 
I'm thinkin' should you touch Flo's face, your fingers will slide straight down, gathering all that makup...and I've the perfect size sock to put in her mouth.

ha ha haaa...you guys are missing the point of this commercial. Take a look at Flo's face when he is explaining or having to answer for all those toys...LOOK at the GUILT On Flo's face. That AIN'T the look of "UH Oh, YOu got Busted", Thats the LOOK of "Uh Oh, We Are Busted" as in Ol Dude and Flo been getting it on behind the Wifes Back and he has bought all those things to keep FLO happy!!!! Can't you see that? Thats what Captured me to this commercial. Like DAAAAAAAAAAMN!! FLO is a Little Freaky!  Notice when dude stutters and says, "Yes I have those..uh uh well We have those"Look at his hand motions.. (referring to He and Flo) LOOK AT HER FACE WHEN HE SAYS THAT!!! Ha ha ha ha...Then shes like Ok, We're made...."Lets Bag these Up" THATS WHATS UP!!

woah, um you ....err okay?



wow.


and I thought I went too far in my craziness sometimes, but this tops that.


Look, I don't want to scare away a newbie but could you at least get to your point without wondering through those extra points? Freaky? by what do mean by that? Um, don't you mean by sneaky? Unless you mean....uuh uh I don't think so! don't go there nononononononono, that's reading into it way to much.

And what's up with the ad where she shows the woman how much someone else saves, and the woman replies "That's like a new pair of shoes!" Which is all fine and good, except that the savings were something like $250! And then Flo is like "Yeah, or a big, tricked out name tag!" Okay, these people have absolutely no idea how to shop if they're paying $250 for a pair of shoes or a name tag. It could have worked if she'd said something like "a whole new outfit" or something, but just the shoes? Come on. Maybe when you're splurging on some designer, but I don't think your average American consumer looking for a deal on car insurance sees $250 as a new pair of shoes.

Ya know, VL...other than the commercial being utter horsesh*t, I'd say that there is that certian group of people that DO live on the other 'celestial plane'; the one where $250 is 'another pair of shoes' (I cringe every time I meet another one of 'em).

Scare me AWay? Jason couldn't do that...Anyway, my point is.."My Point". No Imagination, NO Wet Dream.
Point being you can read into the commercial whatever you want. IN the World I live in, No man is going to have all that with a chick and not get something in return *H E L L O  O H H H H H ! ! *
All the toys are at FLO's house baby... How the hell else could he hide them from his...WIFE!!  LOL!  Lets not get hostile. Its all in fun.

Anyway, I hate commercials in General. I only came here cause I like FLO..I think shes HOt!
But its My opinion. 
Commercials i hate??  ALL OF them..Except the SuperBowl commercials. I hate all Car dealership commercials I DON"T WANT A NEW CAR!!
I hate All Billy Mays commercials, All Drug commercials except the Nasonex Bee, I like his Accent. Who would ever figure a Damn Bee to have an Accent from the Carribean or Brazillian accent.  Just know this...Advertising companies know that no one likes or is watching commercials so now, since they are done force feeding us , and TIVO was the saving Grace, NOw they are putting little transparent ads in the TV shows on the bottom of the screen...isn't that a form of Subliminal Advertising? Commercials really strike a nerve with me. Why don't the have a "Commercial Channel"? Cause they know, no one would watch it unless it was a collection of Super Bowl Grade commercials. Then I'd watchem.
Just my Thousand dollars worth.
good Day.

I don't even get the comment "big tricked out name tag". Yes there are plenty of overpriced shoes out there, but a name tag worth $250? It better have some gemstones or precious metal on it. I've never even BOUGHT a name tag, aren't those things usually company issue, made with flimsy plastic and a label maker? My name tags from my 2 jobs are higher quality then Miss Flo's for god sakes...
