Let's Hang, Flo

The first time I saw the commercials for Progressive Insurance with the lady named Flo, I found her utterly annoying. Adam, on the other hand, thought she was funny. For days, he would walk around the house saying, "Wow! I say it louder!" Interestingly enough, it didn't annoy me, but made me develop a fondness for Flo.

The picture above is the real Flo, who looks nothing like the Flo on TV. She's an actress who's real name is Stephanie Courtney. You can read more about her on http://www.imdb.com/.

I guess Flo caught on because there seem to be several new Progressive commercials featuring Flo. My favorite is when she is checking out a couple who is buying boat, motorcycle and RV insurance and the woman comments that they don't have those things, and her husband says, well, yes, they do now. Flo says, "Surprise!" and the woman gives her a look that could kill. Flo says, "Let's bag these up."

I like you, girl. You're funny and self-deprecating and even though I don't have Progressive, we should hang.

I was just watching that commercial (for the thousandth time) and love it every time I watch it! (LOL) She cracks me up in that one, especially!

She's strangely appealing and mildly erotic. Call me pathetic, but I think she's hot, in a freaky sort of way.

Brilliantly Sarcastic and Witty. In find this chick to be a Turn on for real! I love the fact that she could be Moonlighting with one of her customers who hides the fact the He and FLO have "Toys" together and he came to her and bought Motorcycle insurance that his wife didn't know about...BRILLIANT Side Story...Damn!

Flo appears to be Progressive's answer to the smoking hot Erin Insurance, but they come up a bit short. I want to bang that Erin hard. Flo, however, is growing on me although I think Erin has better legs. If only progressive would show more of Flo, perhaps I would change my opinion. Does anyone know where Erin lives? I want to stalk her....

All of you have it wrong, there is a steaming sexuality underneath that insurance apron waiting to come forth.

I don't know of you'd noticed, but Erin is a cartoon. Flo is real. (Sort of.) And she's kinky.
