Progressive’s “Pets: Secret Keepers”


It’s hard to imagine Progressive’s insurance agents at home or about, when they are not doing insurance-agent things, and this “Secret Keepers” commercial provides that rare glimpse into their more mundane and vulnerable sides.  Who could imagine, for example, that the formidable Flo could get all weepy and emotional over watching someone miss a spare on televised bowling?  Her dog is nearby, seeing everything and revealing nothing…

Then there is the hapless Jamie, shown ironing wearing nothing but his Progressive apron, his Great Dane silent witness to it all.  Another  male associate is submerged for some reason in a bathtub filled with ice, his cat just down the hall.  There’s also the female associate doing the primal scream thing in a car while her dog watches silently; “I feel much better!,” confesses the woman after her eardrum-bursting yell.

Because pets see everything that we do and never say a thing, our “secret keepers” are covered for free in Progressive’s auto insurance policies, you see…and their silence can indeed be golden, for what they know and have seen could be quite embarrassing if not downright incriminating…

    There was a recent re-run of JOHNNY CARSON over Thanksgiving weekend wherein Johnny and Doc Severinsen had a hilarious, discussion on turkeys. Johnny said how he had hated raising one (as a boy in Nebraska) for Thanksgiving dinner, since he was bound to become attached to it over the course of the first eleven months. And, thus, killing it would be like killing a beloved pet!

    Doc’s now-classic reply?

    “They deserve it. Anything that ugly should die!!!”

    Johnny was literally in tears, he laughed so hard.

    JOHNNY: “Can I have a little hit off of whatever you’re having tonight?”

    DOC: “I can’t give you any. But, I can _sell_ you some!”
