“A Pet Too Far” Progressive Commercial…

Where animals are concerned, there’s cute, and there’s painfully cute. So when a commercial being filmed for Progressive Insurance starts with a basket of kittens and proceeds to a bulldog in a top hat 🎩 and then dogs and cats in band uniforms, it’s Progressive’s own Flo who decrees that they’ve gone over the top with a cuteness overload.

Progressive loves animals as much as you do, we’re told, and so protects them for up to $1,000 in the event of an auto accident.

But apparently according to Flo, putting animals into tiny band uniforms to sell car insurance is too much. “What’s wrong with cute animals?,” a team member protests. “Define ‘too much,’ ” says another.

Who’s going to tell Mitten?,” protests Jamie in full band uniform. “She’s a diva!” Mitten is an adorable kitten in a band uniform, a tiny trombone around her neck. She meows pitifully…

Well, I wouldn’t want to have to tell Mitten that her big commercial moment is cancelled…would you?!

    Not if she can turn into a battle cat (a la Cringer of HE-MAN & THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE) by the power of Grayskull.

      Btw: did you know that Washington state’s Mount Rainier (where pilot Kenneth Arnold made the first modern UFO sighting 74 years ago, this Thursday) is the home of the Cascade red fox?*

      *Vulpes vulpes cascadensis. And, no, that’s not a Latin family motto! 🙂

        The otherworldly nature of foxes is hinted at in the “What Does the Fox Say” video, where the foxes in a forest are levitated in a beam coming from above… 🦊

          LOL! I just saw it on Youtube. Charmingly bizarre!

          I wonder if the lead singer was supposed to be an Amaran Jedi?*

          *See Wookieepedia for the former.

      Speaking of battle cats, I finally saw “Wonder Woman 1984,” and “Cheetah” was wonderful! At one point she throws a would-be molester against a van, and kicks him down the street, all before her full transformation!

        Yep! It’s amazing what they can do with CGI, these days. If the Lynda Carter TV show had continued to be set in WWII, the Golden Age version of the Cheetah would no doubt have finally been introduced. But, then being the 1970’s, all the actress chosen to play Priscilla Richmond would’ve had to do is wear a faux-leopard-print unitard!

        Think Josie and the Pussycats. But, with no bare legs showing.
