Flo from Progressive sings in the company's latest commercial. Surprisingly, it's not as bad as you might expect. In order to promote the company's loyalty program, Progressive dimmed the lights and had Flo sing The Pretenders' "I'll Stand by You" to a customer.
We have no complaints over the song Progressive selected. It's a classic. However, we imagine this ad (like so many others before it) will grate on our nerves if it's played as often as the Let's Get Ready to Bundle atrocity. Progressive's spots wouldn't be so widely criticized if they scaled back how often they run by a significant margin.
We'll ignore the silly notion that you'll have some sort of emotional connection with your insurance company and leave you with video of the original tune from The Pretenders.
Obviously you haven't heard her sing on the radio advertisement. It is so irritating, it makes you want to turn the damn radio off for good.
oppressive insurance has the most idiotic commercials on the face of the planet.
the let's get ready to bundle is another stupid one, yea, let me turn over my car insurance to a ditzy brunette who can't remember to press a button.
I personally do mind their annoying commercials. They're terrible, and what makes them worse is Flo. She is unequivocally the worst personality in advertising today. I punch my radio power button anytime these terrible commercials come on.
I personally do not mind their commercials or how often they play. Nothing stops other companies from doing the same and this young lady has been a great discovery for them. She is extremely talented and relatable. Her singing is great, who knew. Keep it coming.
I personally do not mind their commercials, and am not a customer. I think they touch all age groups and demographics. Nothing stops other insurance companies from televising as many or as often as they do. Think she did a great job on singing on this who knew. This is a very talented young lady they discovered and keeping her is a very,very wise thing. Keep it going.
@satinee agreed - I've heard wounded owls screech better than Flo sings
@bmarsh like I said before you obviously did not hear her latest singing commercial on the radio, it is very, very irritating.
