Hey … it’s THAT guy

Have you seen the Progressive commercial with the 80s montage?

If so, then you may have wondered why they chose Curtis Armstrong to represent the decade.

I know I did. However, upon reflection, who else could they have gotten? The blond guy from Cobra Kai? Maybe. But he can’t hold a candle to Armstrong. Consider:

  • this is the guy who told Tom Cruise to take a chance (well … he said it a little more graphically …);
  • this is the guy who snorted a mountain of snow and gave John Cusack love advice;
  • this is the guy who spent one summer saving Demi Moore’s grandmother’s house;
  • this is the guy who pursued Agnes DiPesto, for the love of all that is holy;
  • AND, this is the guy who gave one of the most iconic burps in movie history:

So, congratulations Curtis Armstrong, you have (not so) quietly permanently left your mark (and he’s remained busy, too. Check his IMDB credits).

The commercial, though, leads to this question: if there was a Mount Rushmore for the 1980s, who would be on it?
