I agree. They are, I guess, charming. Friendly. They don't try too hard. I like the Sonic spots for the same reason. You may not have Sonic where you are, but you owe it to yourself to check them out. I know a girl who worked for the agency that makes the spots. It took them 2 years to convince the client to try the approach. And they hired a comic team, and they basically improv the spots. I suspect that Flo improvs a lot of her lines. That's why they feel so natural and unforced. It's very hard to write that stuff.

Yes, "charming" is the word. Maybe that's why I find this campaign so refreshing. I'm up to here with all those snarky, edgy spots!

I will definitely check out the Sonic commercials. I presume the person you know worked on Sonic, not Progressive? Either way, it's interesting to learn more about the process. Improvisation adds so much.

The Flo ads represent an interesting dynamic to me. It's not an ad that I particularly *wanted* to like (she's too perky by half), but it ends up being compelling (and a positive association w/Progressive) anyway.

And I'm with Mr. Hatfield on the Sonic spots, which take a risk and pull off a huge win. Plus, Sonic makes pretty tasty grub.

Marcie Judelson

I know exactly what you mean. I, too, was prepared to hate these spots, but they took me by surprise. Flo's persona - at least on paper - is a recipe for disaster.
Yet, it works - because the actress is so skilled, appealing and unexpected (and the writing isn't heavy-handed). Just a subtle shift in any direction and it could have been godawful.

Place little ones at each place setting on the tables and adorn them with ribbons or fortunes. So as well as being able to do formal and traditional shots, bring out the props and have some fun. It should be centered perfectly on the table, so that the same amount of fabric hangs off either end of your table length wise, and that there is the same amount of space on either end of the table width wise.
