So that's what happened to Erin!

I'd heard they were trying to spin off an animated cartoon series for her--back when we thought the Geico Cavemen would be the next hit ABC sitcom--and when that one went down, it took down about three or four other would-be mascot-happy commercial franchise's ambitions with it.
That, or the character-marketing had burned out the message, which is why the Progressive Girl is now starting to be phased out, and Progressive is moving to some more dopey-stoner "random"-humor commercials to compete with....yes, that F***IN' Geico, again.

(Ask an advertising exec some time about why Burger King's "Where is Herb?" is considered one of the great disasters of the advertising industry...)

It is a mascot for an internet company, and they were surprised that there would be internet porn of it?


Hell, I would've thought that was part of the reason they went with it. Basically free advertising.

BlueOni, you JUST had to think of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.


I couldn't help it. It just popped in there.


You have helped to scar people's childhoods. I am proud of you.

And on this day, it was decreed that Genderbent Stay-Pufft Marshallow Man was officially a slime girl, and main heroine of hentai parody, "Monster-Girl Busters."

Well I guess it's possible, fortunately the don't tend to turn out as bad as esurance girl xD. That is sort of scary though.. even the blubbery food mascots are targeted. How the test tube love child of the Pillsbury doughboy and the michelin tire man turns into a strangely sorta cute looking genderbend I don't know.. the internet must have limitless cosmic genie powers or something.




Mr. clean genderbend resulted in nothing relevant on the top google images! Hurrah, there is hope in this world!
