I don't tend to watch a good deal of tv, but this commercial for American insurer Progressive just cracked me up so much I had to track it down on youtube:

I think my favorite bit is the review from The Family Fun Times: "I had the entire row to myself!"

Enjoy! I sure did.

"Tickets not available now or ever."

Any ad that has Flo in it is all right by me! :laugh:

Yeah, I love that ad! I'm a fan of Progressive ads period. The new one where they come out of the corn field like zombies cracks me up too. :laugh:

I have been thinking many of these thoughts as well while watching this commercial. How fun! I feel like I should know who is playing Flo's rookie sidekick - he looks familiar.

^According to Wikipedia, "Jamie" is played by a little-known actor named Jim Cashman. He was in the same local LA group "The Groundlings Comedy Theatre" as Flo (Stephanie Courtney), so they probably knew each other and Courtney very likely helped him get the gig.

And for all you Mad Men fans out there, Flo (aka Stephanie Courtney) plays one of the switchboard operators in the first and I think second and maybe even third seasons.
