She Creeps me the hell out. Something about the colour wash effect they used on her that makes everything all the same hue, the way she talks, her very emotionless stare and voice are very creepy.
Actress Tamara Hope
Found this version online, makes me laugh but still is creepy.

She'd be hot if she didn't use a freakin Pre.

Actually I think the girl/woman on the Progressive commercials is even creepier.

I noticed her as the girl from the Disney movie, Stepsister from Planet Weird, which makes her even more bizarre.

Even the folks on the Pre forum tend to think she's creepy...
Funny....even tho i thought they'd migrate over here to make mean forum posts and rant about how great their Pre is in response to this thread lol

Nothing with Pre is good...and its a shame mostly men own a pre.

I read an article a couple weeks ago explaining that her creepiness was part of their marketing scheme (seriously). Just like flashing lights and annoying sounds, it gets your attention.

I actually almost posted the link here, but never got around to it.

I don't think the Pre is all bad. It's just not a 3GS, no matter how much their users tout the multitasking aspects of the phone. They just got six new apps, and several of them were retreads of old iPhone apps.

LOL! I just want to kick her. She's so dam happy and perky and irritating.
Right! DISCOUNT! I feel like smacking her with my iPhone! I'm glad I have Geico. At least those commercials are entertaining. Anytime she is on.... I either mute or change channel.

Exactly, many of the iPhone app developers are just porting their apps over to work with the Pre.

I actually like Stephanie Courtney, the actress in the commercials for Progressive. I like perky!

I also love the Geico gecko.

I used to like the Geico cavemen, too, but now they're overly-sensitive wussy boys who can't handle a little adversity. Wimps.

They've all been replaced by the immensely stupid "Watching Dollar stack" with the remixed and crappy music.
