A Tribute to Marcus Gilmer

Flo The Progressive Insurance Girl

"It was a dark time for me. I couldn’t even GET insurance and here I was about to try out for the gig that could completely change my life. But I had a really hard time getting into character. And then I called Marcus and man did he completely change my tune. He told me to get snappy and sassy. So I started acting like him. And because of him pushing me, I found my inner Flo, who is like a female Marcus, honestly. But Marcus has better hair. What a guy!"

"…and Marcus Gilmer said ‘John, of course Congress doesn’t have the authority under Commerce to enact the mandate. But what if you consider Congress’ authority as a taxing body?’ And after that, boom. Just fell into place. How could I not uphold it?"

It meant a lot to us. We had some rough years in the 80s, and knowing Marcus Gilmer was cheering for us really helped. I mean, I guess he was just a little chubby kid in Alabama at the time, but still.

Finer details of the new college football playoff system are still coming out, but the BCS Presidential Oversight Committee made one clause explicitly clear: “Under this 12-year agreement, the Alabama Crimson Tide will be barred from the playoffs, to honor Marcus Gilmer.”

Despite lacking the sense of small, Marcus Gilmer has been the true mastermind of every Next menu, kind of like that little rodent in Ratatouille

ejshea asked: Why is Marcus so fly?

Great question, thanks for asking.

No one really knows for sure why Marcus is so fly. But in 2003, scientists were able to map the human genome and discovered that Marcus’s DNA contained not thymine, adenine, guanine and cytosine but thymine, adenine, guanine and a heretofore unknown compound they’ve called whodatzine. But scientists say whodatzine bears further study before they can make determinations as to its effect on Marcus’s flyness.
