Who is Flo from Progressive? [VIDEO]
I don’t know how the topic of “Flo” came up, but yesterday I found myself in a conversation with a couple of folks about “who exactly is that Progressive pitch girl?”
Nobody seemed to really know. So I says to myself: “Self, it’s time for some quality Google time.” Dig this from Wikipedia:
Stephanie Courtney (born February 8, 1970) is an American actress and comedian, best known for playing the advertising character Flo in television and radio commercials for Progressive Insurance and is noted for her recurring roles on several television series, including the voices of Renee the Receptionist and Joy Peters on the Adult Swim comedyTom Goes to the Mayor (2004–2006); Marge on the AMC drama Mad Men (2007); and Diane on the ABC comedy Cavemen (2007). She also appeared in the season 2 premiere of Men of a Certain Age. Courtney is a member of The Groundlings, an improvisational and sketch comedy theater in Los Angeles, California.

And of course if you were out anywhere last Halloween you saw lots of “Flos”. In the video below you can learn how to look like Zombie, Unicorn, and Alien Flo. Believe it or not nearly 1 million people have watched this “How To”.
So there ya have it. If anybody ever asks you “Who is Flo?” you’ll be able to tell them all sorts of cool stuff. And they will think that you are either a really “smart son-of-a-gun” or a “stalker”. Good luck with that.
