Poll: Pick Your Quirky Commercial Pitchwoman

Please help me settle a heated debate I got into last week. Who do you find more appealing?:

Flo, the perkily bewitching Maggie Gyllenhaalesque face of Progressive Insurance:

...or Deltalina, the captivatingly surreal Jolie-like woman from the Delta Airlines Safety Video (don't miss the finger-wag at 1:51):

Who do you find more appealing?
Flo from Progressive Insurance
Deltalina from Delta Airlines

Deltaina's cheekbones are WAY too distracting.

Flo is a gas. (Did I really just say that?)

rbnlaw said...

I vote neither. Although Deltalina is stacked like a deck full of aces, she has manhands and, as neeebs said, those cheekbones; Oy.

Flo is awful, and I haven't seen the Delta fembot until now

how about "Which Pitchwoman is the most terrifying?" and include the Palm lady. I can't tell if i want to kill her or Palm her

My vote, both women are never allowed to appear on television again. Neither are attractive and the Progressive commercials make me want to jam pens in my eardrums.

I'm ok with Deltalina's hands, but I agree her cheekbones are a bit odd...plus her lower lip is over-botoxed and does weird things when she speaks.

Overall I like Flo's look more, but her energy would drive me to an insane asylum after a few minutes.

Speaking of Deltalina's hands, here's a clip especially for you rbn: clip especially for rbn.

I've never seen the Delta chick. Flo is WAY WAY WAY too energetic and outgoing for me. I'd lose my mind.

I can't believe this poll is even close!!! Deltalina by a mile!

I used priceline for a recent trip and even though my tickets ended up costing me about 1/2 of what I would have paid if I had booked through the airline, I was disappointed that it spat out United boarding passes, denying me a chance to see my favorite Delta flight attendant tell me how to tighten my straps, errrr, relieve the pressure in my cabin, errrr fit my oxygen mask in the case of low cabin pressure.

Thanks EK. I just have to wait until I get home to see it.
My employer blocks YouTube.

Deltaina has been hitting the collagen a little too hard

Eric Karros said...

Man this poll has been neck-and-neck all day. I can't take it.

Deltalina reminds me of this lady:

Give me quirky but cute progressive gal anytime!

Steve Sax said...

You realize there's a whole treatise about the bewitching nature of Flo? Cool.

Eric Karros said...

Now try oogling 'deltalina'...

Oops, I meant 'googling'.

Xeifrank said...

I'm not sure the Delta chick is really a chick, if you know what I mean.
vr, Xei

Mr. Customer said...

Sax's link confirms my suspicion that if you sandblast away the ridiculous makeup, Flo is really pretty hot.

@Scott

Place this over your nose and mouth and breathe normally.

Deltalina is totally part xenomorph
