Now, I don't want to jinx things by mentioning it, but her commercials seem to come on a lot less, and when they do they're repeats of older ones, like they stopped making new ones or something.

What a breath of relief. Plenty of other companies have taken up a lot of the slack, though, unfortunately.

I hate to tell you this, but I saw a new one today (new to me at least). She was in pouring rain talking to a male client like it was some Nicholas Sparks chick flick. *shudder*

Hopefully she married the Messenger and they moved far far away and out of the advertising spotlight.  With any luck they adopted the Geico gecko as a pet and took him with them, but that could be wishful thinking.

Sadly, she's still around.  I just saw the f*cking Flo-Bot one today.  Dead

God yes, she has some new ones alright. That annoying person that shows up, uninvited. Demands you pay attention to whatever she has to sell. Don't let the screen door hit yer big ass on the way out Flo.

Yeah, I've been seeing the same one that LittleO mentioned.  I don't really mind Flo, for some reason.

Is it me or is she getting less annoying? She's acting normal for some reason! Maybe since the godawful talking policy commercial, in comparison Flo looks pretty benign.

I actually like this one, only in that it's departure from the old insurance store ones.

Thanks for the video Brad. As I am typing it is playing on TV. It's weird how often this happens.

She looks pretty fat there. Maybe it's because her hair is down.

I don't think Flo was ever considered shapely or skinny. Her uniform certainly doesn't help either.
Nice touch with her water proof bra btw.

The actress that plays Flo is on the Tonight Show sometimes; she and two other guys haul a long table around to various places, where they sit and discuss people as they go about their business (dental hygienists, etc). She's almost unrecognizable without that gawdawful red lipstick and white apron.
Life is like the game of baseball, except that in life, there's no infield fly rule.

Isn't the one where the woman comes in yelling "Where's Flo?" kinda new? because Flo gave her hubby a 'name your price' tool and now the guy thinks he can juggle chainsaws.

I wish that douchebucket "OverFLO" would move to Greenland so that she could not 'star' in Progressive commerciald any more.  AngryDeadAngry
