A Really Bizarre Commercial

Recommended Posts

Thinking about it...what exactly is Sonic insuring? His cars, the Tornado? You'd think Tails would be the kind of person who does that but Sonic? Haha.

I thought it was implied that Sonic is the legal owner of the Tornado, but Tails is the only one who uses it. Also, I don't think either of them would be allowed to buy insurance anyway because they're underage.

It's the Super Sonic theme from Sonic and Knuckles tongue.png awesome choice of music.

Since this seems to be the general commercial topic.

Thanks to Frokenok for sharing this!

inb4 Sonic doesn't drive a car

Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing 2 confirmed~

Also, I love how those two at the end seem to be a nice blend between the Unleashed and Adventure human designs, this should be how humans look in the next game

0:24 Am I the only one who though the CGI Unleashed designs of Flo and her co-worker just looked....ugh?

That aside, I'm really surprised Sega actually allowed something like this. It's been ages since the last time they had Sonic star in a advertisement for another company. The Sonic 3 invincibility music combined with Sonic not uttering one word throughout the entire ad reminds of the 90s commercials with (classic) Sonic in them.

I'm not sure if it's so much SEGA allowing it, as it is another company FINALLY going to SEGA to feature Sonic in an ad. I can't imagine SEGA had to spend a lot, or anything at all. Sonic is a digital celebrity, and this ad does more to rope in teenagers who are starting to drive than it pushes a Sonic game.

I could be wrong, of course, but I think this is a case of a quirky insurance commercial wanting to use Sonic.

That......was priceless. That was a great ad, and the only Progressive ad to genuinely have me laughing! And it feels SO good to see him in T.V. again, feels like the 90's I never got to experience! To quote a wise man, "Hilarry Goldstiene, IGN: Sonic is back baby!"

And the reason he needs insurance? Well, the Tornado is technically his plane........

^^ Wow, uh...That was unexpected. Sonic in an advertisement for insurance. It sure has been a while since Sonic has endorsed something, eh Sega. wink.png keep it up.

Also, that Sonic 3 invincibility theme for the ad...pure win. Someone at Sega deserves a cookie.

A bit odd to use a giant blue hedgehog that's a video game character as a way to advertise an insurance company, but..hey, it's still a pretty cool ad. I really like the fact that this means I might actually get to see Sonic on the TV again..given it's for something I don't think I'd ever be apart of but..it's still cool.
