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

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

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

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.”

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.

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.

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?

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 Anonymous||reply 60||02/15/2021|
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.

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.

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.
