They're still playing "Telephone" with soup cans and string like preschoolers!

No need for a video, I believe.

Yeah, I pretty much loathe the whole set of these.  I have been seeing the new one about "can" versus the "box."  This soup is suppose to be so good for you, vitamins, protein, vegetables, but this really is a bad advertisement because it only seems to make people who eat it stupid.

Progresso?
 
Hi, I like your soup, but your commercials really suck!
 
Really?
 
Yes...I'm talking out of a damn soup can!

I detest how these people who are 'calling' Progresso call, of course, as they are eating the food. Angry Dead Cry  I know it is a food company, but NOBODY wants to hear someone smack, slurp and chomp on the phone.  Put the food away before picking up the phone...even if it is a can! 
Welcome to Commercial Land. This is a magical place where all women look up while eating, and it is perfectly acceptable to slurp the hell out of a Dannon yogurt cup.

...plus, doesn't the string need to be taut for the "can phone" thing to work?

Where have these commercials been?  I was so excited to see them again!  My life was not complete until these again assailed my eyes and ears!  YAY!  F*CK YOU, PROGRESSO!Angry

I can't believe those stupid things are back. Why is it that the annoying canpaigns stick around for years?

Can't stand the one with the woman in her wedding dress calling from the supermarket aisle! The dress is not in the least bit attractive, and the woman looks totally frumpy! Even the Progresso employee sounds annoyed when she says, "Well good for you!"

Then there's the one with the wife who calls Progresso because her husband looks like he did 20 years ago.  The way the guy says "Just tell my wife to relax and enjoy the view" makes him sound as if he's going to be sneaking in a phone call to his favorite cheerleader from his high school any second.  Maybe even his favorite cheerleader from his kids' high school.

At first, I thought the lady in the dress was Molly Shannon. Then I realized that this lady in the commercial was just slightly more attractive. LOL

The one that makes me cringe is the gal who wants to speak with her "Grammy"  who is out in the garden picking vegetables. How do you call your Grammy and end up calling Progresso? Annoying dope.

She reminds me of John Lithgow.

If I were a Progresso "chef", I'd put this message on my can phone. Or tie all the strings together and make a party line

Stupid commercial. It's a can on a string and it isn't funny.
