Came across this over at the Sonic Stadium. I find the usage of Sonic 3 music interesting. Has anybody seen this commercial floating around?

Spoiler

Except the part with Fox News.

Wow. That's amazing! This is a real commercial?

Progressive always has good commercials honestly. All the big guys do.

It's kinda neat seeing they used Unleashed style models for the Progressive employees at the end there. I really hope they use that style for people in future games.

Win.

Actually, I've seen this before last year. I think they were doing it to promote Generations or something.

Hey now, with Eggman driving around a gigantic monster truck in All-Stars Racing, better to be safe than sorry. :v: Awesome commercial is awesome. Looked like it had some effort put into it too. Loved it.

Sonic's obviously shopping to help Robotnik out a bit for all the shit he keeps blowing up. =P Can you imagine how bad ol' Eggy's insurance rating must be?

I really hope that a direct feed version of this commercial pops up soon. I kinda want to use Sonic's pose at 00:21 as my new avatar on here. :v:

Side note: This commercial using that music seems to suggest the "They don't have the rights" canard is truly dead. Since those were both Sonic 3 musics that were changed later on... being used on a commercial on prime time TV.

This combines two beautiful things: Sonic the Hedgehog and Flo. Hoping to catch this on with my DVR now...

That was awesome. Makes me glad to see Sonic popping up in other markets again. =)
