The commercials were cute at first, but the Progressive Insurance ones are no longer.

That smart ass of a cashier has wore out her welcome and has to go.

I hate everything about these horrible commercials.

I hate that ugly skank Flo and her "tricked-out" name badge

I hate the chick who talks out of the side of her mouth when she says "that's a new pair of shoes"

I hate the twit who says he needs additional coverage for things his wife had no idea he owned

I even hate the annoying background sounds in those ads

that about covers it, but give me a few more minutes while they air those commercials FIVE MORE TIMES!!!

I totally disagree!!!
 
Those commercials were NEVER cute.
 
And that "Flo" chick is just strange.
 
I think these ads are perfect examples of "trying too hard".
 
 
 
 
 
 
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Couldn't agree more - these ads ALWAYS sucked.  And Flo is just weird - she looks weird, she acts weird, but more importantly, someone should run by and push one of her annoying customers over, and as they're reaching out their hand to study themselves, they can stick it about four inches into her face since that's about how thick the make-up layer is.  I'm sure her real face is under there somewhere!  Actually no, I'm not sure.

She doesn't know that he has those extra things, because those are the things his second family has and he just got found out.

And who does Flo's hair?
 
They should be put in prison for that.

I'm actually starting to LIKE Flo.  The only problem is that they show the same commercial at every commercial break.  It's old.  But I'm learning to appreciate her, especially compared to all the OTHER irritating commercials!

You'll be happy - although others here probably will disagree - to know there's a new Progressive commercial. I saw it on the TV in the break room, and it was noisy, so I don't have all the dialogue. I also searched YouTube, but only found the commercials we've all seen.
 
Anyway, in this one, Flo is standing before a conveyor belt. Customer comes in with a banged-up car. Car gets whisked around back, thanks to the conveyor belt. Flo notifies the workers about the car thanks to the handy bell, which the customer apparently wants rung again. (Again, not sure of all the dialogue. I'm going on visual cues here.)
 
The rental car comes out quickly, and Flo hands over the keys.

I think I saw it yesterday.

No, I think it was a Latino guy. I remember Flo calling him "Mr. Garcia."
 
Although I hate this series of commercials, at least Progressive is casting minorities in some ads. There was the black guy in the first one - the one with Flo's "WOW! I say it louder!" - soooo annoying.

I saw it once. Flo now has a "coat/jacket" instead of the usual blouse. And she's sporting some auburn highlights in her hair.

Doesn't insurance kinda sell itself?

I mean, you have to have it for your vehicle, (at least in Maryland). From there, the thought process isn't "Hey, whose commercial do I like best," it's "What's the least amount of money I can pay for something that the law says I have to have?"

This ad is boring and gets annoying really quickly. "And you know what, we can compare your insurance rates with *gasp* other top companies--OMG really?" To these people in the commercial- Get a life.
