Flo thinks LeBron should switch up his chalk toss for a glitter toss. King James isn’t very responsive.

This is a wise move by Progressive. By using their Instagram account for their first #FLOBRON commercial, they are using the free power of the internet, which is probably all they can afford after paying LeBron.
