I have a new TV commercial crush

Yes after months of thinking about it it's finally official. I have decided that I now have a new TV commercial crush. Previously my commercial crush was Margaret Easley the red headed model who stars in the commercials for HughesNet satellite Internet service and is famous for the line, "How cool is that?" Well she has now been officially replaced by my new crush Stephanie Courtney, who you might know better as "Flo" from the new Progressive Insurance TV ads. Yes it's official Flo is my new TV crush. Thank you Progressive!

Margaret Easley











Stephanie Courtney





Does anyone else have a TV commercial crush? I don't mean an actor or actress on a TV series or a celebrity that does commercials or endorsements, I mean a commercial actor or actress. You may not even know their name, they just might be the Dial soap girl or the guy from the Orange juice ad. Who is your TV commercial crush? (and no one better be crushing on Billy Mays)

I've not seen those commercials Doc. Just YouTubed it. Oh I've seen that ad. I like her too. Best part is when she says "WOW, I know, I say it louder" I don't pay close enough attention to crush. I like the one where the birds fool the human and get him to slam into his sliding glass door, HA! for windex. And where the squirrels get the car to swerve to avoid hitting them and then they like high five and bump fists, for Geico.

Karen said...

Hmmmm...I cannot say I have a commercial crush.

I really hope that Margaret Easley doesn't stumble across this. She will be devastated.

Doc said...

I thought about that Karen... Margaret and I had a long run and it was good. Hopefully Stephanie will also find this.

Doc said...

The guy from the Denali commercials that are coming on during the NBA finals. He's HILARIOUS! Hey, everybody likes jewelry!

I also like Flo's 'tricked out nametag'!

I can't remember the last time I watched live TV so commercials just go by me in a fast forward blur.

Years and years ago there was a Coke commercial where the construction worker took off his shirt while all the women in the office building drooled. He was hot! I think he might have become famous for 5 minutes.

And I miss the old dancing guy from the Great Adventure commercials. I didn't have a crush but he was so cute.

UGH! I hate almost ALL commercials so I don't have a commercial personality crush, but I do have a favorite commercial!

It's this one....

Doc you probably can't view this at work so I'll give you the run down. It's an Orbitz Gum commercial and the first line is said by an angry woman.... "You son of a biscuit eating bulldog!"

They go on to call each other "Lint Licker" and "Cootie Queen" and "Stinky McStinkface" It's hysterical!

Robin said...

This is embarassing but I have a bit of a crush on the MAC guy. (Hi, I'm a Mac.") Only when he is in the commercial though, not on a show. Isn't that weird? Or is it the definition of a geek??

Jahooni said...

Commercial Crush? Great question. Crap and now I can't think of one dang commercial!!!

As American as Apple Pie said...

Doc--Isn't this crush a little like cheating on your employer?

Stephanie said...

I'd like to CRUSH Billy Mays...wait...what?

My only commercial crush is on Raoul Bova from this old gap commercial.

'Flo' from the Progressive commericals is HOT! (I wouldn't mind being her 'trick', if you know what I mean....) BTW, the apron she wears is a link to her namesake from the old 'Alice' TV series, where one of the waitresses was also named 'Flo'....

Jeff said...

I am crushing on the girl in the commercial with Flo. "Hey, that's a new pair of shoes..." And of course who doesn't love Flo herself! "I like Cashmere Socks". She is a flippin1 riot!!

Mine would by Jill Wagner from the Mercury car commercials. I believe she was pretty much unknown before then.

Flo is just a doll. Excellent comedic timing. The only clunker...the spot about selling the watch..."that's cold." Totally out of character, but that's the writers, not Ms. Steph. Keep on truckin' Flo! Love ya.
