I love Dr Rick from the Progressive ads, trying to save us from becoming our parents

No comment needed; I just want to state my love for this guy and his advice! "We all see it; we all see it"

How can you become your parents if you don't have children?

by Anonymousreply 112/20/2020

??? You are the child of your parents. The ad has nothing to do with your children.

Who reads books about submarines?

My dad.

I was out with my mom the other day and I caught myself sounding like Dr Rick when speaking to her (she’s 84) “alright let these people have 6 feet of space” or “”we have to leave the store now - people are waiting to come in ...” I love the Dr Rick commercials! “Who reads books about submarines?” “My Dad.”

Dr Rick is so sweetly gentle and non-confrontational:

QUINOA -- I love all the attempts, my favorite is the guy who calls it "Joaquin"

I agree with the R29, though. I think Dr Rick is starting to become impatient with the group.

I hear the big lunch/snack for dinner thing from my 82 year old mom at least once a week. Last night, she had popcorn (and wine) for dinner and had to make sure I knew.

Popcorn and wine?

R47 Just yesterday, I was having lunch at a restaurant and there was a guy shouting into his cell phone about his meal, how good it was and he was going to take half of it home, etc etc. Half the restaurant patrons started chuckling about the need for Dr. Rick.

The “sitting down” sigh of relief.


by Anonymousreply 5301/23/2021

R53. I dont think it's so much a sigh of relief as it's the groaning of aching bones as one sits down. At least that's the noise I make as I sit. It really hits home.

by Anonymousreply 5401/23/2021

R53 / R54 My "aching bones sigh of relief" is usually accompanied by a fart.

A new one aired during the Super Bowl; it was from a Dr Rick seminar:

"Don't say 'howdy" - you're not a cowboy!"

by Anonymousreply 5702/15/2021

The commercials are mean-spirited and dismissive of its older current and potential customers; can Progressive (or any company) afford to alienate a segment of buyers?


by Anonymousreply 5802/15/2021

r31, and the look on her face and the hands to her mouth muffling the silent scream are PRICELESS!

by Anonymousreply 5902/15/2021

R58, if you are offended, you should probably be taking them more to heart as it means you are doing things that annoy the people around you, including strangers. They are charming PSAs in a way: if you see yourself in them, stop doing that behavior.

by Anonymousreply 6002/15/2021

R60 - I see the ads as reflecting our society in general, further evidenced here by your baseless personal taunts. Civility and kindness should never be viewed as annoyances, but go ahead and yuck it up at the expense of others; your (and Progressive's) loss, not mine.


by Anonymousreply 6102/15/2021

R61, Every party needs a pooper. That's why we invited you.

by Anonymousreply 6202/15/2021

I think the commercials are sweet and pretty funny, as we can all recognize behaviors in them we've seen from our parents (and sometimes ourselves). Giving unsolicited "backing up" directions is SUCH a dad behavior.

“You woke up early. No one cares.”

These are hilarious

by Anonymousreply 6402/15/2021

R61, we apparently have different definitions of civility and kindness. No one is saying those aren't good things, and the ads don't mean that at all. Offering unsolicited advice to strangers is not kind. Commenting on a stranger's appearance that you don't find acceptable is not kind. Speaking loudly on your cell phone on speaker in public is not kind. All of those things are annoying as hell to the general public.

Anyone who thinks any of these ridiculous car insurance marketing spots are remotely funny are brainless cods of mush. Every dang Auto Insurance company somehow thinks the only way to sell their product is to do stupid, idiotic commercials?? And they're rampant every 5 minutes on every frickin channel. They're making waaaaaay too much money if their advertising budget is billions of dollars.

Can't wait to see the commercial that played during the Superbowl....I don't think it's aired anywhere else yet.

R36 and R58 and R61 really need to go to therapy. And I will avoid such people with extreme prejudice.

The commercials are awesome, cute, funny, and doing a public service.
