When I first saw this I thought "WTF are they doing!?" Then I saw the whole thing and realized "Oh! That's what it is!" I really don't get the appeal of this ad. What's so funny about pronouncing a word such as "pump-per-nick-le" phonetically WTF!? I mean what's so funny about guessing a password, I don't get it! Sorry about not having a video, for some odd reason my phone can't access YouTube.
One good thing about TV-you could always turn it off

Answer:  It did better in the focus groups than "in-sure-ance-rate-hike".
 
 
Of course, those were "real people", so maybe their opinions don't even count.

There's some commercial in which a guy badly mispronounces "worcestershire" sauce.

I wonder if it's a Flo ad too.

I've heard it on TV before but never paid close enough attention to it to know what product it's for.
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

I guess we can be thankful neither is dyslexic and tried to pronounce it as "pimp-her-knuck-le"...   Shocked  LOL

Or "pump-her-nip-ple".  Shocked
That's probably so old (and childish?), that I'm even a little perturbed typing it.  LOL

This is probably really funny if you're a tween girl who enjoys watching crap like iCarly or whatever else Nickelodeon is showing these days, where yelling and "funny" voices are used as a substitute for actual humor in the dialog.

Another idiotic commercial with Flo and Jamie. This has 'not-hing-to-do-with-in-sur-ance'!! Whatsoever! Does it kill Progressive to make one commercial that describes the policies, discounts and rates without idiocy? 
Sick and tired of Charter Spectrum (and Flo!)

That, and the fact that she is looking more and more like The Joker, with that white makeup-applied-with-a-spackling-trowel effect, is really...disturbing.  Ouch

Hey there! First forum Ive joined. (Long time listener, first time caller! ;p ) (If anyone can give me the movie quote for that line, we'd have a nostalgic laugh;)-- Ok- at about 19 seconds, the guy gives his first attempt at a code word. What the heck is he saying? (It is NOT worcestershistersauer sauce: ;p ) Seriously- its like hes giving a name....krrrrap ever since I joined I cant get to it...it sounds like hes saying something like "no ho ma hi yeh".................what. is. it?!

Any sense on the matter from anyone?

We are probably more confused than you are, jcf.

Welcome to the asylum anyway.

Hope you have fun here.

We can be a pretty fun crowd when we the regulars and old timers actually come here and post.

Sounds to me like "me ho ma hi may" which makes as much sense as what you heard.  I think (and it's only a guess at Progressive's sense of humor) that Jamie just made up a word to use as a password (see Flo's great acting upon hearing Jamie's contribution to the password challenge).  Dead

Welcome aboard!  Big smile

"Long time listener, first time caller.  Love the show."  It's attributed to a 1997 movie called Grosse Pointe Blank.  I have a feeling the movie took it from what real people said on talk radio though.  I may be wrong.  But who cares.  Just pretend I'm right.  Wink

I think you have to play it backwards, like an old Beatles album.
He's saying "Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike!  What day is it Mike?"

He's saying "Me llamo Jaime"...Spanish for "My name is James/Jamie".

But yeah, this ad is annoying.

What annoys me more is that they don't need the password at all. Because one of the employees pushed the door open without a problem!

i get the feeling that this ad is old...she looks relatively svelte (and remember, this IS Flo we are talking about)...not the lumbering dinoFlo of the 'Thats what you get for BUNDlin!" ad and others with her more [ahem] HEFTY self. Also did the Asian chubbo they brought in for one ad test poorly? They dumped her ass like a bag of rotten Lychee nuts
btw these ads continue their rich heritage of SUCK just fine

I just recently saw this ad for the first time (or at least the first time I paid any attention to it) and it truly is stupid.

I probably won't mute the TV or change the channel when it comes on, but might turn the volume down far enough that it doesn't bother me too badly.

Progressive, can we stop this "Jamie" crap, please? I realize Flo is getting old and fat and needs a foil to play off of her amazing iconic talent (sarcasm), but this guy? No. Get him outta here.
