Typically when a Progressive insurance commercial comes on the air, I mute the television. But this brand new one requires SEGA fans to crank the volume! For whatever reason, Sonic is now in a Progressive ad. Sonic is shown running about to the Sonic 3 invincible theme looking for savings on insurance, which is smart considering he always has a violent evil doctor out to get him. Flo, Progressive spokeswoman, stops him and yammers on about savings and insurance. The ad ends with Sonic celebrating to the Sonic 3 extra life jingle.
Overall, a very unexpected but awesome ad. The animation is well done, and everybody loves some classic Genesis tunes pumping through their speakers. One note: when the humans get toonified, they look very much like Sonic Unleashed-style humans. Cool to see that SEGA hasn’t dropped this style, despite humans being MIA since 2008 (Eggman aside).Ad:

Wow. That’s one of the weirdest promo crossovers in recent memory. Though now I can say my car insurance is officially endorsed by Sonic!
sonic is the coolest thing alive
Super-nerds take note: Sonic’s insurance rate is $380. Might come up in a trivia game someday.
LOL, IKR! XD
did you notice on the progressive commercial
the humans were like sonic unleashed
but not totally
they had a bit more adventure look to them
a bit more realistic
It’s a sign of… Sonic Adventure 3
Don’t start with THAT now.
Wow, Sonic in a Progressive ad…..did NOT see that coming.
Where was he when the Dreamcast needed these crossover ads? Cool commercial though.
no they look like unleashed and second please give up there will be no sonic unleashed this year
i mean sonic adventure 3 there will be no sonic adventure 3 this year so give up and dont start another rumor
….he was joking, Teirusu.
Not sure how I feel about this. Maybe I’d like it if the advert was a little less… terrible.
Oh great. Now here come the Sonic/Flo fanfics. XP
that was really, really good. Would bet my left nut that’s some Marza Animation Planet right thar.
While the animation looks great.. honestly, the commercial makes me cringe
