Those Progressive and Geico Commercials

Started 1284674641.03 in Viewpoints | Last reply 1292516657.983 by Lotus~

Have you seen the latest Geico commercial? It is hilarious in my opinion - the question - Do woodchucks chuck? I won't spoil it for you but it is so cute....on the other hand, have you seen the latest Progressive commercial with the older couple and the man says something to the effect of things get better with time blah blah and the older wife giggles ... makes me gag. I am so sick of those Flo commercials I could scream and you cannot avoid them.

My son is crazy about the Aflac duck!

I like the Geico ones. The only Progressive one that makes me chuckle is the one about the calculator humor and she says "I'll be here all week! No really that's my schedule" that is THE only ONE, the rest annoy me!

The Geico Wood Chuck one is cute.

I think if Thersea wants to make money for her family she should represent Geico Insurance.

The best for me: Traveler's Insurance - all the animals at the waterhole. Adorable!

The worst for me: Those disgusting cave men types from Capitol One. Yuck!

So do I! So cute.

I like most of the Geico commercials, except for a series that they had a couple of years ago (non-gecko & no piggie) that was truly lame.

As for Progressive - I find those profoundly irritating and idiotic. That Flo character is beyond ridiculous.

Bippity boppity BOOYAH!

I skip through commercials on my DVR, but when I do get caught, I love the progressive ones. That girl is cute and pleasant.

My 2 year old LOVES the Geico gecko and will yell "Geico! Geico" every time he comes on. We don't even let her watch TV that often, but somehow she recognizes the gecko.

I can't stand Flo! She's like "fingernails on a blackboard!" UGH!! And the new commercial with her riding the motorcycle, I have to change the channel -QUICK.{#emotions_dlg.scared}{#emotions_dlg.thumbdown}

I think all commercials are stupid. That is why I rarely watch them and when I'm watching tv live, I mute them. The only exception is Mayhem. I love him.

When someone tells you that you have changed, it simply means you have stopped living your life their way.

Can't stand Flo.

I love the new Geico commercials with the pig wee-wee-weeing all the way home.

But my new favorite is the Allstate commercials with the Mayhem guy. There's just something about him, his bad-boy image, his voice. I think he's hot.

The Geico commercials are funny, but I am sick to death of Flo and Progressive. {#emotions_dlg.bored}

I love Flo. I can tire of a constant repeat of the same ad but I think she is funny -- and at the same time, has a sweet cluelessness.

I'm surprised they don't make better use of her with more scenarios. No doubt the actress is making good money, and good for her.

They are a hoot. Just saw the one this evening with the older couple. X-trade has really cute ones. The babies on the plane, then today saw one with a baby in the crib standing up. Just wonder where they get their ideas. Really neat to make us laugh.

Love Flo!My favorite commercial is the one with a woman awaiting a man to tell her the value of her bird and hand figurine (ala anqtique roads show). He says it is "worth two in the bu sh"{#emotions_dlg.lol}

OMG! i tried to edit this 5 times before realizing you can't say bu sh on here! what's that all about??

Oh, I love the Gieco commercial with the little piggy too! My DH thinks I am crazy. Glad to think some others like it. Also, love the Aflac duck. {#emotions_dlg.thumbup}

I haven't seen the new Geico commercial with the 'woodchuck', but my cousin worked in medical billing and said that the company were very reluctant to pay for medical claims regarding automobile/car accidents.

I wouldn't buy from either of these companies because their commercials are so goofy.
