Skip to comments.The Strange Allure of the Progressive Insurance Girl (The One You Mute)
Posted on 05/17/2010 8:56:38 PM PDT by Dallas59
Flo is her name. She's the spokeswoman for Progressive Auto Insurance, lighting up televisions in a series of commercials in which her perky cashier pitches the money-saving merits of Progressive to customers. She works in a sterile, all-white big-box store, and her florid makeup stands out like paint spilled in snow.
First she caught our eye; now she's snatched our heart. Viewers are smitten. They're crushin'. They want to know: Who's that girl?
From a recent blog at HoustonPress.com, with the headline "The Cult of the Progressive Car Insurance Chick":
"Am I the only one completely and totally enamored of the woman in the television ads for Progressive car insurance? You know, the ones starring that babelicious brunette named Flo with her 'tricked-out name tag' and her '60s style eye makeup and her kissable red, red lips?"
No, sir, you are not. There's more where that mash-note came from, out there in the blogosphere's infinite confessional space: "She's hot." "She's weird but, God, she's fine!"

She’s like my best friends goofy kid sister.
She makes me change the channel. Insufferable character and a despicable corporate philosophy behind it.
Or an aunt that sells Avon and Tupperware and always has cookies in the kitchen.
I wouldn't take "progressive" insurance if YOU paid the bill, but I gotta admit that I do like Flo.
Doesn’t George Soros own Progressive Insurance?
My 18 month old stops whatever she is doing when she comes on and runs to the TV..
Sorry I’m programmed not to trust or buy into anything named “progressive”.
You know — I like her & think that she’s a great pitch(woman), but I’m gonna’ stay with GEICO :)
No, but close enough. The name is no accident. The owner is some big time Dem donor whose name escapes me..
You either like her or wanna drive her over a cliff into a bottomless lake without insurance.
not me, I love her....great merchandising...cute, sexy but not provacative.....very well done commercials. The owner of the company is a socialist idiot, but his advertising department is great........does the word “progressive” ring a bell???that’s him.
Interesting question—where did they find this comedic talent, and why hasn’t she been seen anywhere before? She reminds me a lot of the “madcap” comediennes of the movies in the thirties—like Jean Harlow, Eve Arden...
I vote on the 2nd choice - wanna drive her over a cliff into a bottomless lake without insurance.
No shortage of those I'm afraid.
Can’t stand her mouth or looks!
Peter Lewis. Lewis, but Jewish. LIke the other Billionaire progressives...Soros, the Sandlers, and Geffen.
I despise that broad.
Besides for her idiotic comments and the fact that she’s way, way, way to overplayed, we won’t go in to the “enough lipstick to choke a goat” problem...
This thread alone is making the hairs on the back of my neck stand up! Seriesly!
By the way, Peter B. Lewis, the founder of Progressive Insurance, is an ally of George Soros.
Whether you like Flo or not, I suggest you find another vehicle insurance company.
I’ll take the drive over the cliff option...
