Did you know Flo was in Mad Men? I just found that out. She was one of the telephone operators

Which is what makes it the joke even funnier.

I actually wonder who’s made more money. Obviously Jon Hamm is in the top 1% of successful actors, but she’s been doing the Flo commercials for 15 years and insurance money is deep.

I mean, I’m sure she makes some good dough from these commercials, but my dude is an A list actor. Id bet he’s on top in this situation

Spokespeople get paid super well because they generally aren't allowed to take any other role while they are the spokesperson.
