Many of you have already noticed, but Sonic is the star of a new advertisement for Progressive insurance.
Pretty cool, huh?
lol, i’ve seen 5 progressive commercials today and none of them were this one…maybe ill see it later tonight

Pretty good, but the music kinda seems to over-do it. Too bad i haven’t seen this one yet
Posted by Benjamin on January 11th, 2012 at 3:28 pm
Why is Sonic of all people (or hedgehogs) happy about no more running around? Either way, this is awesome
Posted by MT on January 11th, 2012 at 3:30 pm
He must be doing Eggman’s Insurance shopping, otherwise it’d be kind of criminal to just wreck his labs and inventions day-by-day and leave him to wallow homeless in the streets. Sonic’s a hero, but he’s not heartless. XD

Must be looking for Go-Kart insurance for Mario.
Posted by Zachs Kappler on January 11th, 2012 at 4:05 pm
Nah, he’s looking for liability insurance before he kicks Mario’s butt in Sochi for the 2014 Winter Olympic games. Mario may be fat, but he packs a mean punch, especially in court.

It’s great to see Sega pulling together their resources to make a great Sonic game… oh wait…
Posted by Mike Hartnett on January 11th, 2012 at 9:51 pm
i’ve been looking on all the channels but i haven’t found it yet

What’s next? Sonic getting rewards for purchases on his credit card?
….If so, I called it.

Didn’t expect the Super Sonic theme from “Sonic 3″! As much as I enjoyed this commercial, I can’t help but think of the scene in “Galaxy Quest” where the actors from the classic “Galaxy Quest” TV show have been reduced from TV heroes to business-endorsing mascots:
“By Grathbar’s hammer…what savings…”

Well, I guess that made my day…

This Is The Best Sega!

Cute and cool, but why doesn’t Sonic speak at all?

Sonic! You have the right to run! Nobody has the right to take away your hedgehog rights! Run!! Run like the wind!
The 2 people at the counter thingy, you have no rights to take away his rights and why was he there anyways?
Posted by Light Is Hope on January 13th, 2012 at 8:04 am
And Sonic has normal eyesight dammit!
Posted by Light Is Hope on January 13th, 2012 at 8:05 am
I can’t see the video because my country “Syria” blocked it with facebook
Posted by Maamoon marashli on January 13th, 2012 at 9:35 am
So now Sonic’s got insurance and No copyright law in the universe can stop him. What’s he gonna do next?
Posted by Naxal710 on January 13th, 2012 at 10:01 am
SEGA you people are retarded when it comes to advertising. I mean… On the FOX channel… Right during FOX news… Who the heck is going to even know or care about Sonic on that channel and during the news? Are you aiming for 40 and 50 year old’s? The next time you go for TV commercial partnering and marketing leave it to somebody who knows how to do it properly. This is something that should be aired across CN, Nick, Disney, and others like ABC.
Honestly even I know that much.
Posted by Chris K. on January 13th, 2012 at 10:11 am
LOL. That was the funniest sonic short i’ve seen yet. Great post too!
Posted by Christian on January 13th, 2012 at 12:09 pm
Oh gosh that was hilarious!
Posted by Coby on January 13th, 2012 at 4:12 pm
AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Still haven’t seen it on TV though, still watching for it though.
Posted by TanyaTH on January 13th, 2012 at 6:25 pm

This, but no word on Casino Night Pinball? It’s been almost a month since release-date without word.
Posted by -_-;; on January 15th, 2012 at 7:15 pm
Hopefully we’ll see Sonic in other ads It reminds me of kind of Sega ads during the DC era, I miss them so much…
Posted by Magdhad on January 16th, 2012 at 4:36 pm
I saw it on TV finally! Nice!
Posted by Angel on January 18th, 2012 at 5:46 pm
Aww, Sonic looks adorable
Pity this commercial isn’t in my country.
Posted by Sara on January 19th, 2012 at 10:42 am

Posted by C.J on January 19th, 2012 at 10:43 am

Posted by Plain20 :D on January 19th, 2012 at 2:37 pm

Make a new progessive commercial with Sonic TALKING!!
Posted by SAVE US.SONIC on January 26th, 2012 at 3:15 am
Sega! I am VERY dissapointed in you! Why have you not made a Sally action figure? and what about Julie-Su or Lara-Su? And what about Wave? And you should really have more Amy action figures! I mean really! You guys made a commercial with Progressive, but you don’t care about the action figures anymore! PLEASE!!! I will BEG ON MY NEES IF I HAVE TO!!!!!!! Please! I would really just like it if you made one of each action figure! ( Type ) Like, one bendy, and one 3in., and one 12 inch, but please! I don’t care if they cost 1,000,000,000 dollars! PLEASE!!!
Posted by Jasmine not the Hedgehog on January 27th, 2012 at 6:22 pm

Posted by kyle on January 29th, 2012 at 6:05 am
There’s nothing like playing Sonic 3′s invicibility and extra man music. ^_^ Sweet memories.
Sonic is running around all invincible, looking for a 1up or an extra man. XD
