Progressive Presents “Progressive On Ice”

Progressive gets meta with this bizarre spot. Are you adequately prepared for the insurance-themed experience of a lifetime? Well, here’s “Progressive on Ice”! There are Flo and Jamie lookalike ice dancers shimmying away with house and car props. “But why?” Ice Dancer Weekly asks. The Family Fun Times notes “I had the whole row to myself.” Tickets are not available now or ever, but some YouTube commenters say they’d actually want to see this if it was a real thing. Silly, but amusing work from Progressive.

KIND Snacks Says To Be Kind To Yourself And Eat A KIND Bar

A man and a woman are on a flight. When the flight attendant comes through with snacks, the man picks a Clif Bar, while the woman (played by the stunning Marisa Bertani) picks a KIND Bar. What kind of fancy-pants flight offers Clif Bars and KIND Bars? It’s a commercial, so I guess we have to suspend our disbelief. Anyway, the first ingredient in the Clif Bar is brown rice syrup, which is just another name for sugar. That’s shown to us when the man dumps out the thick brown goop from his Clif Bar onto his tray table. The first ingredient of the KIND Bar? Almonds. Much healthier. She gets a KIND Bar to her seatmate. Aww, how kind. Other pertinent questions…he’s sitting in the middle, and she’s in the aisle seat, but there’s nobody in the window seat. Did that person get up to use the lavatory? Do these two know each other? Did they travel together? If not, it’s a bit weird that he’s sitting next to her. Yes, she’s attractive, but still. So many unsolved mysteries from this simple commercial.

Orbit Gum’s Zombie Kiss

Here’s a short and memorable commercial from Orbit Gum. It’s a classic love story. Boy likes girl. Girl is a zombie. He doesn’t know if they should kiss, but after she pops in a piece of Orbit Peppermint and smiles, he’s hooked. The tune at the end is “Bedroom” by Litany. The guy is played by Taylor Kare…anyone know who the girl is?

Wendy’s: Bob And Susan Compete Over Mary’s Berry Burst Chicken Salad

Wendy’s Berry Burst Chicken Salad looks quite tasty. So Susan is tempted to swipe Mary’s salad. She’s then caught by Bob, who helps himself to the vibrant greens. Bob also unconvincingly claims that Mary is his middle name, after his grandmother. Poor, poor Mary. You have terrible coworkers! Susan is played by Lauren Reeder, and Bob is Jake Regal. Anyone know who plays Mary?

Delta Faucet Might Cause You To Dance In The Shower

Here’s an interesting one from Delta Faucet. This man arrives in the shower quite groggy, but once he turns it on, he livens up. Then dancing magic happens, and what a show he puts on. Anyone know who’s the man with all the moves? The song playing is “I Feel Good” by Cook Classics ft. Mike Taylor. So what do you think? The Internet can be a pretty prude place…do you think this ad is fun or is it offensive?
