If the box is talking to you, run, run very fast.

Seriously, you think they would've stopped with f*cking Aunt "Flo." But no, they have to create a talking f*cking box to sell their stupid, sh*tty coverage.  It never ends.

Honestly, I want to take that f**kin' talking box and play a rousing game of field hockey with it. I'd smash it into oblivion. I can't stand those commercials! He sounds like such a smarmy douchebag.

Whenever I hear that box talking, the first word that comes to mind is "douchebag".

I remember that commercial. I miss 90s and early 2000s commercials. =/

His pretentious comment about the groom affording a better ring in the wedding commercial makes me wanna douse the snide little prick in gasoline and throw his gas soaked cardboard body into a bonfire.

Agreed he comes across as a total douchebag. Naturally if called out on his douchebaggery he would say "I'm just  kiddin' around." and then proceed to get roaring drunk, hit on pretty much every woman there even if she already has a boyfriend, and then go around telling everybody how to do everything.

The only thing more douchey in that wedding commercial than the box itself is that stupid woman dancing (if you can even call it that) with it. And doing the freaking robot no less.

I'd settle for that damn snarky talking box with the fake high brow accent to be sucked into an exhaust fan and getting the wood chipper treatment. And I hate that retarded women doing the robot.

Let a dog loose on it. See if it'll talk when it's been ripped to shreds.

That's animal abuse for that poor doggy that attacks that obnoxious thing. I'd settle for that damn officious talking box to be thrown under the bus.

Overall, the damn thing annoys the hell out of me.  What bugs me the most is when it yells, "CANNONBOX!" as it jumps in the pool.  I've never heard a kid yell, "CANNONHUMAN!" as he pulls his shins to his chest and jumps in a pool.  It's a f*cking cannonBALL, no matter what anthropomorphic object is performing it, f*cking Progressive.

That talking box is so pointless. At least Flo is a human and can shill Progressive all she wants. Humans can talk. Boxes cannot. The one where he rags on the groom's wedding ring present to his bride made me cringe. Something along the lines of, "The groom must have gotten the ring out of a 25 cent toy machine," that was just so damn tacky.

Insurance doesn't even come in a box. At most you might get an envelope in the mail.

I've seen it too! The only way to improve the box (besides dousing it in fire) is to replace the current voice with the Checkers bag voice. Even that won't save him!

That box wants the dudes, he/it actually hates women. And please no ghetto Checker's Bag; just as bad. Here's an idea: make that box a portable kitty litter pan. A little cat sh*t and piss does an obnoxious box good! And that chick doing the robot wasn't she once a dude? And diving off the board saying Cannonball? Plase! At least Flo has some cuteness to her. I could go down and check out her policy without any drinks. Flo is overdo to show some skin. Flo, lose the pants you got nice legs and would look smoking hot just wearing the shirt/robe.

Everyone hates this stupid ad!  I'm with Angry McP - there is no fate dire enough for this obnoxious, toxic, insulting talking box.  What pack of idiots came up with this concept?  After being subjected to this unfunny, uninformative, creep-factor-ten, actively insulting series of ads, why would anyone want to buy insurance from this company?  All I want to do is pour lighter fluid on that box and drop a match.  Or use a flamethrower and crisp its ugly face.  Or pour hydrochloric acid on it.  Or better yet, pour syrup on it and put it in a box with a thousand raspberry crazy ants and let the games begin!
