    Default Most annoying TV insurance commercial

    For those of you who still watch regular tv, there is an insane amount of annoying insurance commercials. Which is the worst?

    State Farm's "Don't mess with my discount"
    Any Progressive ads with Flo and Jamie
    Any with Shaq and the General
    Any Allstate with actor Dean Winters where he destroys a car or causes an accident
    Any "We are Farmers" (except the Sesame Street ones, which are cute)
    Progressive with the Motaur (half man/half motorcycle)
    Nationwide ads with Peyton Manning and Brad Paisley
    Any Liberty ad in front of the Statue of Liberty (except the Bad Actor one, which is kind of funny)
    The AFLAC duck

    I've probably forgotten some, there are SO MANY!

    You forgot the Geico Gecko ones, which are good to okay.

    I don’t really mind any of the ones you listed. Some can be forgettable, but I don’t find any annoying.

    The bad actor Liberty Mutual commercial is pretty funny (libetty bibetty ha!).
    Also their Limu Emu ones are corny funny.

    Flow and her supporting actors are always fun.

    The We are Farmers are always fun. The latest w. the bears in Speedos is just great.
    The Motaur ones -shouldn’t- work, but the actor really sells it.

    And the General ones just goes to show, Shaq will put his name to anything!

    Those don't bother me at all. The prescription drug comercials on the other hand, that spend most of the time telling you how dangerous the all.."and in some cases...death."

    I liked Flo at first but she is way past her shelf life and now she is like nails on a chalkboard.

    Farmers are always good (even if the Sesame Street ones were the best).

    Progressive ads with the employees I find vary, although I think I like the Mara character more then the others and Jamie only works when he's contrasted with his other co-workers. The Motaur ones are a clever one-joke idea that's been overused.

    I can take or leave Liberty (although more on the leave side).

    Geico is almost always good.

    Anything with Flo.

    All of the Liberty Mutual commercials. They were cute at first, but all of them are run repeatedly on the channels I watch, and I'm done with them.

    You beat me to it.


    For me to cope, I'll need to take a prescription whose side effects include growing a 3rd ear in the middle of my forehead

    I like the Farmers ads, I even sing along with the jingle!

    Flo is my girl!

    Liberty Mutual with the struggling actor gets a chuckle out of me.

    Shaq and the General are a Madison Avenue bromance.

    Progressive with Peyton and Brad are always fun.

    GEICO with the woodchucks has always been a favorite.

    "Libity Bibity"!


    I like the ones with Flo and all the others.

    I want to know why they phased out the penguin in the General commercials. LOL


    I think you should expand the topic to all commercials, because I have a few that annoy me that aren't insurance based.

    I’ll admit to being curious. However, if anyone disses Jan from Toyota, there’s gonna be trouble!

    Ok, there is a commercial for CashNet USA about getting payday loans. Some dude runs around in regular clothes and a cape, kinda like Marvin on the original Super Friends. He annoys me.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDFVW50CIZQ


    and then there's the Charmin bears. Talking about their clean hineys and stuff. LOL One of the commercials has the bears saying "I'm not gonna pick it up, you pick it up" and it's a pair of underwear on the floor. One of their kid bears comes in and says he'll pick it up because (as he starts to sing) "My hiney's clean, oh yeah it's Charmin clean".

    But the bears never wear clothes in these commercials, so who has been wearing this underwear? And why are ya letting your kid pick up this strange pair of underwear? LOL

    The last one is for a product called Replens, it's a woman's hygiene item. I'm not a guy who gets unnerved by this type of commercial. After all, it's just an item a woman needs, for a biological reason, so there shouldn't be an adverse reaction to that. But the commercial opens with the line voiced by a woman: "You've come a long way since your first tampon!" Couldn't they come up with a better opening than that?

    I get what they're trying to do with "LiMu Emu" but ... no. Just stupid rather than "stupid funny."

    I don't ever want to see the one about "They burned down my she-shed" again - whichever company that's for.

    I was not a fan of the Flo ones when they were essentially ripping off "The Good Place" with all the Janets and had Flo play all the characters. Those were bad bad.

    Flo never annoyed me. But I am surprised she's still around.

    The mentions of Flo reminds me that there haven't been an Erin E-surance ads in years. What happened?
