The Progressive Insurance Girl: Why?

progressive-ins-girl

If you don’t live in the US, you may not know about this girl. She is featured in a series of TV ads from which there is no escape.

At   first glance, or if you’re deaf, you might be pleased with her retro make up. However, soon enough, the horror of her over-the-top goofiness will obliterate this asthetic appreciation. She exudes a sickening self-satisfied energy that makes me want to kill her.

Here’s the problem. Apparently, you’re supposed to love her!

I found this out when I googled the question, “Is Matt Taibbi gay?” I thought he might be, but I wasn’t sure. I admire everything about him, as do gay men, I soon learned. The gays are disappointed that Matt is straight. But on a conservative blog, someone insisted that his dislike of the Progressive Insurance Girl proves that Taibbi is gay!

Am I gay, too? Matt Taibbi is on record as wanting to strangle this girl. YES, Matt, YES! Why would anyone object to such a healthy and normal reaction?

This world is dangerously out of whack, that’s all I know. If you google her, you’ll see an essay titled “The Strange Allure of the Progressive Insurance Girl.” Evidently, the whole nation has fallen for her “endearing” charm.   God. Make it stop.

It’s you and me, Matt. Give me a call.

    FLO is such an irritating cunt.. I’d like to take one of progressive’s “immediate response vehicles” and run this bitch over, stop, back up over this dumb ass retro snatch whore and run her over again..

    then get out, dig her still beating heart out of her bloddy body and show it to her so she can see just how black it is before she dies…

  2. arne Says:

    I suppose I’m the only person on the planet that gets a joy out of watching the commercials. Flo comes off as fun loving, caring, personal, enjoys what she does and wants to share some information. Perhaps those criticizing her should get the railroad tie out of their eye before trying to remove the toothpick from her eye. Oh well, life moves on and we each have the freedom to give our opinion. Have a great day!

    Funny post and mostly funny comments – any chancve of moderating out i.e. deleting the few that advocate violence? Note that all of them do it in a very sex specific way.

  4. star Says:

    stephanie courtney is her name,shes a comedian that does stand up.can you help it she has a gig now that pays?

  5. Gerry Says:

    I don’t get Reachel Ray comparison – at least her skill and work ethic offset her obnoxiousness, but as far as that Progressive skank, yeah, I abored her from the moment her skanky-skank face hit the back of my flat-screen and stimulated a volent gag reflex. Ever since, it “happens all the time.” Arne, you ARE the only person on the planet that gets any joy outta skanky Flo. It’s not just Flo anyway, the whole ad campaign blows…

  6. THE_ABSOLUTE_LORD_OF_HELL Says:

    Every time I see a Progressive commercial start to come on, I can’t get to the fucking remote fast enough to hit my “NO FLO” button. THIS BITCH IS ENOUGH TO MAKE A STRAIGHT GUY GO QUEER! Imagine having to listen to this stagnant skank whore OVER AND OVER AGAIN…. DISCOUNT… DISCOUNT… DISCOUNT… ARRGGHH!! ENOUGH ALREADY! All that comes to mind anymore after being bombarded with 5-10 of these fucking AWFUL commercials per hour is “BLOOD FLO” Maybe “FLO THE HO” will develop a sudden aneurysm in her polluted, GANGRENE INFECTED CUNT and go to that great big shit hole in the sky with that other ABSOLUTE IRRITATING FUCK, BILLY MAYS.. EVEN AFTER THAT LOUSY ANNOYING FUCK DIED, HE IS STILL ON COMMERCIALS TODAY…. OH, AND STEVE, YOU ARE A CUNT FASCIST… WE DON’T NEED SOME LOUSY TOILET BUG LIKE YOU ADVOCATING CENSORSHIP HERE, YOU DON’T LIKE WHAT YOU READ HERE, FUCK OFF AND STAY OUTTA HERE…

  7. bob Simpson Says:

    You are not supposed to like her or hate her. You are just supposed to remember her. It seems to work.

  8. michael Says:

    shes fuckin hott

  9. michael Says:

    too many fucking idiots on the internet.. crying over a fucking commercial .. REALY ? Bitches get a life.. Since you all hate a person for nothing but doing her job and someone you’ve never met before only seen on TV, I hate you whore too. Good day and suck me.

  10. craig Says:

    please get that stupid bitch off tv i cant see how they sell a damn thing with that bitch as there hero fuck give me a break

  11. Roy Says:

    Heh guys thanks for affirming my belief that there is still some sanity out there!

    This guirly is giving us exactly what OBAMA / the Feds want. Don’t believe it? Who is her company again? GEICO Government Employees Insurance Company. So too is Progressive a Federaly Government “Enterprise” if I am not mistaken.

    They spent what 500 mil a few years ago. What are they spending in 2010, ten times that amount? She is on every hour on the hour it seems on EVERY channel on Satellite TV. The costs have to be absolutely outrageous. NO commerical has had this much exposure except . . . . oh yeah, Geiko’s Grecko!

    Now you know where the unaccounted “trillions” are going! The poor bitch is helping em bankrupt America – and Decapitalize it!

  12. Psyrix Says:

    My god finally a website that is true to my heart. This progressive Flo bitch is annoying to no end. Every time this stupid bitch pops up on TV (like every commercial break) it pisses not only me off but my wife as well. We both bitch about it for 10 minutes everytime it comes on. It is pissing us off so bad that we can’t even enjoy watching tv anymore. She was ok back when those adds first started when she was at the checkout line but when they put her in charge of the Progressive store all that changed. I wish someone would run her over with a car. I will never get Progressive insurance and If I had it I would have done canceled my policy with them.

  13. Jenny Says:

    Thank you! I was searching the progessive movement in google or a history paper and i see the progressive girl as one the popular searches as i’m typing in progressive. so i click on it. literally every one was about how surprisingly sexy she is except for this one. i was horrified. thank god for you. my whole family hates her.

  14. Johnny J Says:

    I came onto the net to show my gal that I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO HATES THAT ANNOYING PROGRESSIVE, CUNT FUCKING BITCH SKANK. Does everyone know that progressive, and I do not have them, is the only insuracne company that chargfes a $50.00 cancellation fee. Yup. Back to that annoying CUNT. From the very first time I saw that nasaly talking annoying bitch on tv I have immediately changed the channel. When I hear the ads on the radio, click and she is gone. Here is a note to anyone who likes the skank, take her and go to the fucking moon!

  15. Johnny J Says:

    By the way . . . Jill, get a life.

  16. Eugene Says:

    Her real name is Stephanie Courtney and she is an empty-headed twat.

  17. Sid Says:

    The Progressive Girl whores herself and Progressive Insurance out almost everytime you watch one of the minor channels like History Channel or NatGeo. Everytime I see this woman’s huge hair and hear her irritating voice I search for the remote to at least mute her. Geico still can claim the worst commercials but Progressive is close behind, thanks to “Her Obnoxiousness.” Let’s hope that she soon drops out of view and hearing.

  18. progressive guy Says:

    I want to strangle her too! Very gently while riding her.

  19. maxx_factor Says:

    Well, what else can really be said about progressive and their lousy fucking ad campaign with “FLO THE SCREECHING CUNT” I would rather have wood splinters run under my fingernails than sit through another flo ad! These ads and FLO the HO have caused me to cancel my commercial vehicle policies and switch to State Farm, which, by the wAy, has given me better coverage and I am saving almost 40% FUCK OFF PROGRESSIVE AND FLO I HOPE YOU GET A THROAT TUMOR THAT WILL REQUIRE A COMPLETE VOICE BOX REMOVAL THEN YOU CAN SCREECH THAT ANNOYING “DISCOUNT, DISCOUT, DISCOUNT!” THROUGH YOUR NECK BOX YOU WHORE!

  20. conrad Says:

    Hate that commercial and your face please stop those sorry commercials.

    You are a ugly bitch fuck you people at progressive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. jonathan Says:

    I wish there was a video game where I was granted different methods of taking her life. Or even just to simply punch her in the stomach. Chappelle accomplished this nicely with the Verizon guy…who is also on this same list.

  22. WaikikiCane Says:

    Madmen Netflix discs can't come soon enough…I'm hooked!

  23. Flo Hater Says:

    Im so sick of this vomit inducing Progressive campaign I cant stand it anymore. I hit the mute button so much I wish there was something that could be done to just make this sickening character go away forever. Its not funny, Its lame, stale and dumbass awful. People who find any humor in the commercials have must have had lobotomys. Your the C” word Flo, you make me sick and I cant express that enough. Ill give Progressive an A+ for inducing hate for the company and never using them. Thats what I think of Flo

  24. levi toms Says:

    YES I AGREE W/ ALL …THAT FUCKEN FATASS LOSER ON THE PROGRESSIVE ADS….I HOPE THOSE THAT ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS ‘REPROBATE’ STINKING LOUSY GOD-DAMNED SHIT GO TO HELL WITH HEMMOROIDS AND A 2X4 SHOVED UP THEIR ASSHOLES…MOTHER FUCKERS

  25. Figment Says:

    unfortunately, the goal of commercials is recognition/product discussion….I cannot STAND these stupid commercials and it seems like there’s more or them on every day….like every other commercial. Unfortunately, they’re accomplishing their PR goal – even if it’s through hatred because we’re all talkinjg/complaining about this offensive thing! UGH!

  26. Figment Says:

    While we’re on the topic, Nationwide are a very close second to P.!!!!!

  27. 2Twisted4NE1 Says:

    I like Flo. I like the look, and she’s charming. That won’t make me buy my insurance from Progressive. I actually hope she gets a real acting job and can get away from the commercials. I ask all of you, do you really hate Flo, or is it really the commercial you hate? I can get on board behind hatred of the commercial, but not for hatred of such a charming woman. I’m rooting for you Flo! The rest of you cynical pissy little trolls can crawl back into your caves and finger poke each other in the dirt button.

  28. RP Says:

    Stopping the huge expense for these ads would lower the cost of their premiums just like THAT!!!!

  29. tony montana Says:

    ok….ok…ok….. THIS FUCKING AGING SKANK IS STILL ON THE TV…… WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH PROGRESSIVE!!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE THEY ARE STILL IN BUSINESS….. PROBABLY GOT ONE OF THOSE “BACK DOOR BAIL OUTS” FROM THAT WORTHLESS WIGGA NOBAMA… GOD SAVE THE U.S.A…… WE ARE IN FOR SOME DEEP SHIT IF THAT WORTHLESS NOBAMA GETS BACK IN FOR ANOTHER 4 YEARS.. MORE OF HIS SHIT AND MORE FLO I GUESS…….FUCK NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

  30. bobby Says:

    I am so tired of seeing this woman everywhere. So many commercials, it is just plain nauseating. I go to my fantasy baseball site, there she is again, appearing all the time. Have you ever noticed how much these insurance behemoths advertise? Not just this marketing creation, but the stupid geckos and cavemen too. It is no wonder insurance is so expensive, they take our premiums and waste it on advertising. It backfires with me, I refuse to do business with any insurance corporation I see advertising.

  31. Hank Williams Says:

    OH HOW I WOULD LIKE TO ASS RAPE THIS BITCH WITH A BROKEN BOTTLE!!! THAT HAIR……………THE CUPIE DOLL MAKEUP………….THAT VOICE…………….. THE BLAND WHITE OUT BACKGROUND……………..I WOULD LIKE TO SEE ONE OF FLOS COMMERCIALS WHERE SHE GETS RUN OVER BY ONE OF THE PROGRESSIVE INSURANCE SUV’S AND IS SENT TO THAT ANNOYING BITCH HOLE IN HELL WHERE SHE BELONGS!! OH FUCK I HATE THIS COMPANY AND THIS PUTRID SKANK WHORE, I CANCELLED MY 7 POLICIES WITH THESE FUCKIN MORONS AND WENT BACK TO STATE FARM….. BETTER COVERAGE… LOWER PRICES AND BEST OF ALL…….. NO FUCKING FLO THE HO WORTHLESS AD’S!!!

  32. Dave Says:

    this girl does nothing but make me want to throw up! get her off the air!
    would never ever buy Progressive becuse of this crap and talk about wearing something out they should be shot!

  33. McGarrett- Hawaii five-HO! Says:

    FUCK DANNO! THIS BITCH NOW HAS A ROBOT THAT IS EVEN MORE IRRITATING THAN THE CUNT IN THE FLESH! “FLOBOT” IS WHAT THEY CALL IT.. AND IT IS JUST HORRIBLE.. PROGRESSIVE INSURANCE NEEDS TO GET A NEW AD EXEC. THAT HAS THE BALLS TO THROW THIS WHOLE IRRITATING CAMPAIGN DOWN THE FUKKIN TOILET!

    FLUSH FLO AND THE ROBOT HO……..

  34. annoyed Says:

    FLO is so damn annoying i had to see if other people were equally annoyed vs how many people like her to justify why shes still on the air. She really makes me hate seeing those unbearable commercials.

  35. ms.lee Says:

U don’t know how many people I know who the idiots paid for false reasons but u are honest course they won’t do right,they are NOT HONEST. They are GENERIC .

  36. Richard Says:

    There is ohly one word for this girl & Progressive-NAUSEATING!!!!! As long as she is on the air I will never buy any of Progressive services regardless of the cost. She & the GEICO gehko make a charming couple of sickening characters!

  37. Jodie Says:

    I would like for Flo to tell the truth during her commercials about Progressive Insurance. My mother’s insurance agent for Progressive put my vehicle under my mother’s policy and my mother was charged for insuring a third party’s vehicele (mine) which no one can insure someone else’s property, relative or not. Despite my repeated telephone calls to Progressive, Progressive would not refund those premiums to my mother. Despite I sent proof to Progressive that my vehicle was insured with another company. Progressive stated it would not refund the premiums unless I proved I had separate coverage. I reminded Progressive that a third party cannot insure someone else’s property and Progressive knows that there would be NO COVERAGE – Progressive would not pay under that policy despite premiums being paid.

    Also, Progressive is a “household” policy which means if a parent adds coverage for their son or daughter’s vehicle who lives at a different address, i.e., college, Progressive will NOT honor the claim under that policy because ALL vehicles covered under that policy MUST reside at the SAME address.

    Third, I had Progessive car insurance and had an accident which the report stated that the other driver was 100% at fault and lived out of state. Progressive refused to help me verify that the other driver in fact had insurance with the company he put down, where the company was located and how to file a claim with that company. Progressive stated there was nothing for Progressive to do since it was 100% the other driver’s fault and REFUSED to help.

    If you let someone drive your car and he or she gets into an accident, again, PROGESSIVE refuses to pay.

    WHY DOESN’T FLO MENTION THIS DURING HER SPILL IN THE COMMERCIAL – FLAT RATE NO PROBLEM BECAUSE WE’RE NOT GOING TO PAY – ONLY TAKE YOUR MONEY – BUNDLE – WHY CERTAINLY – BUT PROGRESSIVE WILL NOT PAY BECAUSE IT HAS ALL THESE LOOPHOLES STATING IT DOES NOT HAVE TO PAY.

    PROGRESSIVE INSURANCE ADS ARE DECEPTIVE AND OUTRIGHT LIARS.

  38. Anon Says:

    The sad thing is that girl flo makes a rediculus amount of money for each of those vile, hurendous, stupid, annoying, ridiculous, disturbing, discraceful ect. I guess my point is i hate her and the commercials are stupid and obnoxious.

  39. Saint Revolution Says:

    Got news for you.

    That talentless pain in the stinkter, who fancies herself in real life an Los Angeles professional comedian, pulls down $500,000 per year annoying us into epileptic fits.

    Remember Mr. Peanut? The Frito Bandito? Captain Crunch? Tony The Tiger? Where’s The Beef? FlintStones Chewables? Even Ronald McDonald?

    These and many others were endearing…and didn’t cost companies nearly as much money.

    Flo will just go down in history as the creepiest unfunniest most overpaid talentless she-loss in TV commercials history.

    It’s like the idiots from Friends who ended up making a million dollars an episode each…or one-dimensional actors like Kaley Cuoco who, although amusing, can’t hold a candle to The Odd Couple, The Mary Tyler Moore Show cast, The Bob Newhart Show cast, actors like Richard Burton, etc….yet get paid æons more money.

    I’m 53, a Child Of The 70s, and all I know is that it’s all backwards these days. People get paid gobs of money for no talent nothing and those with über talent are working as clerks in accounting offices for close to minimum wage.

    What the fuck ever.

    In the end, no matter what and how much, know this, Flo: comparatively, across history, you really really suck.

    Go ask Bob Newhart how it should be done.

  40. mark Says:

    Its simple to hate a thing IF:

    1. Its showed way too often.

    2. The product being sold offers no real satisfaction…unless your a lawyer.

    3. The thing is not easy on the eyes.

  41. Guillermo Rey Says:

    I live in Ohio and whenever I get off the turnpike to pay my toll there are stupid pictures of this hideous woman. I stopped taking the turnpike because of her. Disgusting what big corporations subject us to on TV and in other ways. I can’t stand the culture I live in anymore. They’ve corrupted every aspect of life in the U.S.

  42. Sharon Says:

    I always loved Flo, but now she has become a bi.ch. She is mean to her coworkers on tv and now I think she has run the gamut. Bye, Flo
