Has anyone posted this monstrosity yet? 
I think it may be worse than Flo herself, if that's possible. If I hear this one more time I'll go insane.

There is already a thread on Hand Puppet Flo, I know because I wrote a reply to it yesterday. But, I will rewrite my reply here. The hand puppet Flo is creepy, and that woman comes off as mentally disturbed.

When this commercial started airing I was afraid "nailed it" was gonna become a new advertising "catchphrase" cause right around the same time it came out the Big Lots Christmas ad started airing with the heifers singing "nailed it, nailed it"

DKS, I remember "Nailed it," being funny when Lindy said it in I Didn't Do It, Christmas episode. It was funny because she was so proud of herself for counting to 3, when she actually counted to 9. The normally smart and normal Lindy was now an idiot due to a wish gone bad. So, she stupidly gave a customer $9.00 when she meant to only give $3.00. And, the customer actually walked off with the extra $6.00! Okay, I got a bit carried away. Nailed it was funny when Lindy did it, annoying when the woman does it in the Hand Puppet Flo commercial.

Her voice doesn't even sound like Flo - she sounds more like Pam Poovey from "Archer."

This thing is played every single day on almost every single channel I change to. If murdering a commercial was possible, this would be the first I would go after.

The better commercial would be if the guy had hand puppet Flo and lipstick in awkward places when the wife caught him.

I really really dislike this actress, Suzi Barlett or something. In most of the commercials it seems like she thinks she's being hilarious and and the people shooting it are all probably "OH GOD SUZI HAHAHAHA COMEDY GOLD RIGHT THERE!! OH MY SIDES!!!" but most everyone else just rolls their eyes.

I don't see how her stupid hand puppet is anything like Flo. Doesn't sound like her, the stupid "nailed it" tagline she says twice isn't a tagline Flo says that I know about. Then again, I don't know why I'm bitching about something not being "Flo" enough since I'm not all that fond of Flo either, lol.

The sound of Her saying "nailed it" sounds like fingers scraping on a chalk board to me especially the 2ND time.
I probably wouldn't even hate this commercial if she didn't say it but as it is its one of my current most hated airing...

I had to look that up.  Well, I didn't have to; I wanted to.  I wanted to confirm my suspicions that this is some teen sitcom, as you reference teen sitcoms a lot.  And yes, it is.  But I kind of expected it to be one from the 80s, considering your preference for such.  I was wrong on that count.  It's current.

Why are you watching sitcoms targeted at 12 y/o girls?  You're a 39 y/o male without kids, aren't you?  At least if it was to leer at adolescent girls, it'd be sick, but I'd get it.  But it seems you watch them for the actual stories.  That, I don't get.  ShockedLOL

Thor. Please check what I posted a few minutes ago in the Title Max thread. There is at least one CIH poster who has problems separating fantasy from reality.

She was mildly amusing in an old (Esurance?) commercial, but that's about it.

For the love of god...will you GO AWAY Flo?! You've had your 15 minutes of fame (...I meant 7 years) now let's let someone like a REAL spokesperson take over Progressive. 
Progressive has been airing Flo all day long. Hand puppet, that Charades commercial, the creepy dummy, the after-school special love one, and the "piece of cake" 15-second ad. ENOUGH!

Anyway, I have no idea why they keep airing this piece of garbage, total whackjob talking to her hand. I think they wanted the kiddies to start usin "Nailed It" as a cool saying (ex. "Swag", "Like a Boss," and other moronic sayings) After 3 months, nope..it didn't work.

Oh sweet mother of pearl...

I hope I never ever EVER see this commercial again!

The "nailed it" was bad enough the first time why make us suffer through this $%&# a second time? Go away Progressive! Far far away until you change your commercials

If I caught my wife with a Flo hand puppet and talking to it,I'd be looking for a Divorce Lawyer. Or better yet,an Annullment Lawyer if we haven't been married for at least a year.

I hate to say it..but  i think the flo hand puppet may actually be hotter than FLO

she is a spokesperson who has about as much sex appeal as a turnip

which I am sure has been calculated and explains her MASSIVE appeal

I hate ALL Progressive commercials!

Anyone see the one where Flo is at someone's house...I hate that one even more!

If it was me, I'd say...Hey Flo, how the f**k did you get in our house uninvited?
