Those two were made for each other...man of color, woman of...um, no-color(?). Flo obstructed the love connection! Progressive must remove this bigoted, racist commercial!

Since it usually diminishes the effect of sarcasm to say "That was sarcasm," I'll just leave it at that. Ermm

I don't see anything racist about this commercial.  Just the cute girl in bibbed overalls with perky tits? 

She just wants some big black bone!

If this commercial is bigoted...it's bigotry toward people who want a love-life.

Flo is a word that is a word that's punishable by death toward women!
Thank God for kids who love Obscure Things.

I was apparently TOO subtle with my humor when I posted this video. I even added a LOL emoji to the title. I was kidding...you know, all kinds of innocent words and actions these days are misinterpreted as racist, when they're clearly not.

I just thought it was a different, humorous take on the "elephant in the room" (Flo) in the commercial's scene (cock-blocking). The scene portrays Flo as inadvertently, accidentally, not-realizingly(?) getting in the way of the romance between the two kids...and I extended the "joke" to portray Flo as a racist who was deliberately standing in the way of an inter-racial romance. Oh well.

Have you ever wondered what the net worth of Flo from Progressive is? Well, her real name isn't Flo. It is Stephanie Courtney, and she is a New York native comedian and actress who has a net worth of $6 million dollars

I don't care who loves who and what color they are - i am just SICK of it being forced on me as if it's something new.  Black and white couples in almost every commercial - sometimes they even look very uncomfortable.   Why is the ad agency ( and media in general ) forcing this  -  it also applies to white men and Indian women.   I don't get it.    It was the whole premise of "God Friended Me" for example.  Stop already.   The Willis's upstairs changed America back in the 1970s.

Lake Titicaca, Nicaragua. 

They had a real big T.P. shortage back in the 90's I heard.

Must be having a hell of a time post-Covid.

These Flo commercials are all systemically racist (it sounds smarter when you put "systemically" in front of it) because they DARE have at least one cis white woman featured... sometimes when the whole cast of "employees" is featured, they have *gasp* MULTIPLE whites onscreen AT ONCE...................................................and none of them are even trans!  Oh sure, they stick the one token black guy in there but the diversity ratio is still way too skewed and makes me want a safe space, a coloring book, some glitter, and a puppy.

Some have had suspicions about Jamie (but then there are lots of questions about Jamie...)

Quote some glitter


Stay away from glitter. It makes an effing mess, and you'll never get it completely cleaned up...

THIS JUST IN FROM ADWEEK

Why is Flo not on Progressive commercials anymore?
According to a statement made by Progressive, which was reiterated on Adweek's website, their goal now is to connect with Millenials by showing the humanity of their company. They want to show that the company behind Flo is made up of ordinary, hard-working, and honest people.

Exactly. It's pandering, which is insulting. For fun, sometimes when I'm watching prime time TV, when the rare white male appears onscreen in a commercial, I shout "HEY, how'd he get in there!?" LOL
