I saw my dad at the home he's at and this commercial came up...



He said the commercial sucked...and must they have their laptops and tablets in the pool?

Better idea for this commercial...the laptops and tablets are plugged in and everyone gets electrocuted...then a giant bag of rice crushes the survivors.
Thank God for kids who love Obscure Things.

It's not a proper pool party until someone BBQ's the emu...

I get Youtube shorts from "Useless Farm" that feature this emu named Karen.

Karen's a real sweetheart.

I never saw the full version until now. I keep seeing (and just saw it a few minutes ago) the shorter version which I just couldn't understand. It's so short, it's pointless.

I don't know who the target demographic is for this commercial. 

Young people? Maybe. But are they going to be swayed by this? (I'm not young, maybe I don't get kids today. I just know I'd look at this like "Meh, dumb commercial" when I was younger.)

It's certainly not geared to people my age. (Closer to 60 than 50) I don't have any kids (that I know of) so it really doesn't resonate with me. But then I remember when people used to go around saying "Get a piece of the rock" for insurance.

i think this one qualifies for 'desperate reach with zero related content' award of 2022

Everything about this smacks of 'NOW what do we do--the limu has covid and Dougs
been revealed as a serial killer' Oh wait.... something INANE and summer related!!

What's the point of the 15 second version? It makes no sense!

You're right - it makes absolutely no sense. 

I think the only possible reason could be that at least they're not subjecting us to the full commercial. :-)

Now there's a stupid Limu Emu ad in a bowling alley. The saga never ends for one of the worst advertisers on television.

There are two Progressive "Flo" ads that run constantly now. I've never seen them all the way through because I avoid them like the plague. One is the one that starts with that terribly sung "Loyal Order of Riders" jingle. The other one starts with the dad and son and soon closeted Jamie is putting his creepy hand on the boy's shoulder. Shudder.

It is way past time for Flo and gay Jamie and the rest of them to hang it all up.

Making things worse, there are actually two different "motorcycle" ads.

Note how those  Jamie with hot wife ads were SUPER short lived

Flo went away forever, then appeared suddenly in the past few months with more cringy ads.
Yuck! WTF?! I've been wishing for her TV demise for years. Hey, at least if she takes Jamie, she can take an emu and a mustached idiot for free!

How can these insurance companies keep throwing these vomit-fests at TV viewers? Angry

No, I think Jamie wishes he did - but he's a virgin. He's still very much the foolish/stupid little boy. Gay boy perhaps, but a boy. Always has been.

Flo's been with us now for 14 years! That's quite a run.

I've never had a problem with her.

Flo has never bothered me either.

I think that's because instead of portraying her as some kind of "beautiful, strong, superior, empowered, modern woman leader" who I'm supposed to take seriously, etc, etc, they made her very plain looking.

And she's usually the butt of whatever the joke is.

When commercial characters are shown to not take themselves too seriously, I'm mostly OK with them, even if the attempts at humor aren't that funny.

The thing that I hate most about characters in TV ads, is when they try to portray them as über hip or cool or superior or whatever.

When they make their own spokes mascot sort of a geek, I don't hate them.

I will take Flo over Emu commercials any day! Sure, she is not gorgeous (on purpose), but I find the Progressive ads a little more entertaining.

Take that comment with a grain of salt, please!

I like Flo. She has to be one of the longest running advertising characters right now. I believe she was introduced in either 2008 or 2009.

Here she is in some earlier roles. I like the one in which she plays a Britney Spears sort of pop star (at about 30 seconds).

So let me ask you.... if everything else about the ads was the same, except that Flo was portrayed a beautiful, hot, sexy actress with big tits, would you like them then?
