Advertising for Dummies: Flo goes too far (2016)

The latest commercial from Progressive Insurance may have caused Flo (Stephanie Courtney) to jump the shark.

Why would Flo reject---repeatedly---the morning paper from a passing carrier? Just an excuse so Flo can mimic former NBA star Dikembe Muotumbo, who did an ad for GEICO a couple of years back, right down to the finger wagging.

You might call it being overprotective. I call it stupid and unfunny. Although we'll agree Flo's got some hops.
