Wait, what?

I do NOT know what to think of this!

This commercial features Flo pleading with her accusers in different eras not to kill her because Progressive's Name Your Price Tool isn't (name your accusation here). Of course they claim Progressive's is "dangerously progressive" get it? How funny! Are they running for office? Seriously, WTF!?

Flo....

GO AWAY!!!!! About sick and tired of these Progressive ads, and have been for the last 3-4 years. It's 2015, time to retire her and replace her with a real insurance salesman.

Sick and tired of Charter Spectrum (and Flo!)

To me she's fairly benign that's only because I've seen her so much! However if they replaced her, I wouldn't mind that at all. BTW the commercial came on again she's hawking the "Name Your Price Tool" SSDD. Also the commercial says the idea is "dangerously progressive".

Methinks she's a witch!  Obviously, she avoided visiting Salem.

She turned me into a newt!





....I got better.



(I think the last segment of that ad is supposed to be Salem. The caption does say "New England".)

They'd probably just replace her with that talking insurance box if they retired her, so careful what you wish for!

The old witch test that was never wrong is in order. If she drowns she is innocent. If she floats she is a witch and immediately hanged!

Yeah, I'm sorry, I really was a huge fan at one point, but Flo has officially gotten old....as in, visibly aging. And that may not even bother me if the quality of the commercials weren't sagging too. I mean, come on...the whole "it's not lactose, it's milk" thing running right now? Pathetic. That joke is actually kinda funny, but every thing else about the commercial is difficult to watch. The sounds, the picture, it's all so very old, and I get that this was done on purpose, but I don't think it achieves the comical tone that was intended. It just reminds us of how bloated and old our once beloved character is...seriously. Get on with something new.
