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

The CG employees at the end looked pretty cool, indeed. I wonder if this was made by the same studio as Night of the Werehog (VE).

This is fucking awesome. I asked their Facebook if they could upload the commecrial to their youtube, let see where that goes. if nothing progresses from it then everyone set their DVRs and hope we get lucky.

Sonic drives and crashes his car in Sonic Generations I'd hope he's insured

I swear to Christ I came up with an idea for Sonic in an insurance commercial like three or four years ago.
I too had a dorky grin on my face.

What is this I don't even, but I have seen this with my very own two eyes. Interesting choices of music. The latter can easily be attributed to Sonic 4 (which is strange in it's own right).
I am fuming that I have not seen this commercial LIVE. I'm tearing up because Sonic is relevant to the real world again.
I would love me some Sonic vs. Gecko (in B4 Gex!)

Sonic must be very drunk, cause Progressive Flo actually looked vaguely attractive through his vision.

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.
What do you mean "changed later on?" Standalone Sonic 3 always has that same invincibility music even in all of the collection ports on PS2, Gamecube, Xbox, PS3 etc. The only version of Sonic 3 that changes the music is Sonic & Knuckles locked onto it, and the reason it changes is because it wouldn't make sense to have two invincibility themes within the same game so it just goes with the S&K one.

Next up, AoStH Sonic putting the moves on Erin E-surance.
I'm a little interested that they don't actually mention the name "Sonic" in the ad; you'd think Sega would want that for brand recognition. Then again, I'd expect them to steal voice clips from other contexts for him, too, and I'm glad they didn't do that
. I do like Sonic running over the logo at the end a la the "SEGA!" call.

I love this to death. Reminds me of the old Honey Nut Cheerios commercial. It's good to see Sonic popular enough to do ads again.
That said, an amazing commercial like this only leaves us wanting more sightings of the blue blur. Here's a good ol' list of things Sonic needs to add to his commercial schedule:
- Get "powerful pain relief" for all the rolling he does
- Hey, Sonic's "Got Milk" too, right?
- "I'm Sonic the Hedgehog and I lost 15 lbs. on Nutrisystem!... Don't forget to use this diet in tandem with healthy exercise, such as supersonic running!"
- Mystic Ruins hotels and resorts alternatively, "Super Sneakers Resorts: the luxury-included vacation"
Purchase auto insurance for that car he drove once
- Find the best deals on transcontinental flights (private plane?)

You're suggesting a blue hedgehog might not be recognizable. Besides, Sonic's name does flash up on the ticker. And I laughed out loud when it did.

Sonic doing what he does best, whoring himself out to corporations.
It's beautiful really. :')
Posted 07 January 2012 - 02:36 AM
@Blivsey: OK, true. But still, I would think the marketing people would've, I dunno, requested the humans not refer to Sonic with only pronouns. It just seems weird to me.
