ConfusedONE 'Flo-lite' commercial was really enough.

I suppose this mini-Flo is shaping up to be the next Lemonade Suzie.  That may not be that bad a thing though, being as Suzie didn't have very long of a run before (thankfully) disappearing off the airwaves.

Flo, no matter if she is 8, 38, or 78, can GO AWAY...hate most of her commercials (except for splitting atoms. For some reason that commercial I like. The rest are terrible.)

Nobody mentioned it yet, and maybe its obvious, but did you realize that the lady who buys the cake IS Flo without the make-up?

Yeah, the original poster said that.  She's also incognito at the end of the "Class President" commercial.

The Flo saga is now officially past its shelf life. Retire Flo while she's still ahead and before the commercials get worse. We can also do without the precocious "Little Flo", so don't make us hate her before she starts a real acting career.

PS -- Thank God the Guys From Another Insurance Company are apparently on hiatus.

Liberty Mutual has the best car insurance ads, especially the one with the cute babe on the ferry at Puget Sound whose car is going into the drink.

I shared this on the Flo in a castle thread, but here it is again - preceding Flo was this! I would rather see this commercial!

Pretty sure I saw Flo in a dif company's ad (might have been for a phone or something.)  If she is freelancing, it might mean her Progressive contract is coming to an end....

I see she played a phone operator in 5 episodes of Mad Men.

I'm still irritated with seeing an 8-year-old Flo in 1988 when she'd be 18.

Then again, I guess I wouldn't mind seeing 18 year old Flo's cupcakes.
I used to be with it, then what I was with wasn't it any more, and what was it was weird and scary to me... and it'll happen to you.

I never noticed that, she is all wrapped up in tight bun.

I swear, I am sick to (censored) death of the Flo saga! I honestly don't give a damn if they depict her as a child or not, this saga needs to (censored) end already! I will gladly go back to the "This Is How Life Should Be" chain of commercials that preceded this stupid era. I have Progressive Insurance on my rig, and while the coverage is good, the fact that they still use Flo is making me regret making the decision to go to them. I even emailed them two months back asking if they could be a good gracious and retire Flo and go back to decent ads. The ones with Flo are a migraine to no end. Of course, no response, thus proving a theory of mine. No matter how much we complain, until someone decides to take charge and kick that annoying farce out, once and for all, we're stuck with the demon spawn of Godzilla and Satan. Here's a sample of good Progressive Insurance advertising.
We're all stuck in a teenage wasteland, and hopefully one day we'll leave this godforsaken wasteland.

^  I'm guessing that not enough people hate her that much.  I think she's pretty likeable, myself.  You may want her to go, but you might be in the minority.  I think Progressive keeps her around because she's worked out well for them.

No I had no idea.  Thanks for mentioning it though.  That's interesting.

They could save their customers a helluva lot more money if they'd quit making these stupid ass commercials CONSTANTLY.

She apparently has quite a few "Likes" on Facebook...and I know at least 2 people personally who like her.

I noticed that too. I was just looking at Stephanie Courtney's  IMdb page. She was 18 then. She most likely would have just graduated high school. As for the commercials themselves I don't really hate the character I just find them annoying when you've seen the damn joke every single day for months on end.

Is it just me, or does Little Flo look a little creepy? Kind of like a Children of the Corn or Firestarter type.
