Yes, you know her. She is Flo, the animated and heavily made up cashier at the fictitious Progressive store, who gives tours, tells jokes, and is overall, a cool chick. After seeing her commercials repeated daily, I changed from Geico to Progressive off the strength that Flo was more entertaining than the Caveman.
Since about 2008, Flo has been a staple in our pop culture. Seen on billboards and even coffee mugs, Flo has become famous in her own right. She is a cubicle chick because while working, she is able to maintain her quirky personality (plus her top lid liquid eyeliner eases my soul)! As a matter of fact, I wanted to be Flo for Halloween this year but nixed the idea since I’ve decided to dress up as Ne Ne from RHOA. Flo is a little Amy Winehouse mixed with a little Peg Bundy– a woman who I am proud to call a Cubicle Chick. She’s working for a living and trying to have fun doing so.
Here’s to Flo, the Progressive Insurance Lady. Long may she reign.
