Teleflora has advised customers never to send flowers in a box - you never know what they'll say. Now that they're voiced in by Mr. Warmth himself, Don Rickles, our warning has never been so true.

Teleflora's Super Bowl 2010 commercial premieres on CBS during Super Bowl XLIV on Sunday, February 7, 2010 - one week before Valentine's Day.
As with all of our talking flowers spots, the Super Bowl commercial highlights the difference between receiving a beautiful hand-arranged, hand-delivered Teleflora bouquet, versus flowers packed and shipped carelessly in a box.
Our ad takes place in an office a few days before Valentine's Day. An unsuspecting female employee receives a box of flowers. At first, she seems elated. Then she opens the box. The flowers are wilted and dying. To make matters worse, one of the flowers - voiced by Rickles - begins hurling scandalous insults at her.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the office, another female employee receives a Red Hot Bouquet from Teleflora's Valentine's Day flowers collection. Like all Teleflora bouquets, it's hand-arranged, hand-delivered in a keepsake vase - never in a box - emphasizing the Teleflora difference.
Teleflora's in-house ad agency, Fire Station, is behind the concept and creation of our hilarious Super Bowl commercials. This spot was produced by Go Film and directed by Tim Hamilton.
