These were given to employees of Progressive Insurance. There are two additional cards Flo & Flo's mother.

Wow, those are great! They all seem to be the actress who plays Flo in elaborate makeup a la Eddie Murphy in "Nutty Professor". Good stuff!

It's all from the latest Progressive commercial and the whole family is indeed played by the same actress. That Flo character is a gold mine for them, just as good as the GEICO gecko.

I enjoy most of their TV ads, they are very clever. Now about their insurance I have no idea. Big Grin

Too funny, I had no idea there was a commercial with those characters, as we've mastered the DVR and see very, very few ads these days.
It certainly does make sense that they wouldn't go through all the trouble just to make a set of cards for their employees. I checked to see if any were available you-know-where out of curiosity and there weren't, but there were plenty of other "Flo" promo items they've made over the last few years, like bobbleheads and such, and some of that is pretty pricey, so it has been a great campaign for them. The Geico "cavemen" once got a (short-lived) weekly series, maybe there's one for Flo on the horizon, too...

These are pretty clever, and wish more companies did stuff like this. That said, dont think I would chase after these, Flo gives me the willies, and a whole family of Flo's gives me the heebie jeebies...

The actress who plays Flo was on Mad Men in the first season, if someone would ever do my dream set and make Mad Men The Complete Series, maybe she could sign?

Her name is Stephanie Courtney, and right, she was Marge in the phone bank at Sterling Cooper during the first season.
I, too, would love a Mad Men set. As long as they could get Jon Hamm to sign, I think it'd be worth a go.
