So are they trying to lose business with their recent commercials? I mean come on now what was wrong with flo bot? flo looks like a jealous employee screwing over her fellow employees robot or not...and this is supposed to help their buisiness? I guess I am confused about current advertising techniques.

ha ha way for me to be all literall I should write a review of their commercials. :lol:


haha wikepedia must have already had their brains absorbed, I tried to edit a entry to tell the real story of flow the chick who just cant get over her grudge against robots who provide better service than her annoying mouth. But I guess it does not make progressive look good and they dont like that.

My response:
Well the point was her behavior does not reflect honest company policies, sorry for noticing it and all. I just feel when I purchase car insurance I should be able to trust the emloyees to follow company rules. progressive commercials make me feel like progressive has some pretty crappy behind the scenes behavior and therefore people should not trust them as a great insurance company...I mean clearly robobts and better employees than flo are people to.

I don't see why a computer program edited yours out. You were defending flo bot and a computer program should defend its own kind

Hahaha! :lol:

I've always found Progressive's commercials annoying and/or unfunny... and ironically, I have Progressive's motorcycle insurance. My rate is really cheap, but I often wonder how much cheaper it would be if progressive didn't waste insurer's money on such silly marketing.

(At a recent motorcycle show, Progressive (the main sponsor) had a "take a picture with Flo" booth. I did't bother.)

I am waiting for GEICO's gecko to market motorcycle insurance! :D
I can imagine the gecko riding a loud miniature Harley, like a super badass, pulls off into a shady smoke-filled biker dive bar, slowly struts into the crowded bar like Clint Eastwood, walks to the juke box, selects Prince or Bieber, turns around, lowers his shades, and says in his cockney accent, "Ah! There much better. Now for a thirst quenching Pina Colada!". Then followed by the announcer's "15 minutes could save you 15 percent"... LOL!! !

I liked the Gekco much, much better...at least he was chill and laid back.
