Amy Poehler Returns for Old Navy

Amy Poehler and Chandelier Creative return with a new spot that sees the Parks and Rec star hosting a spelling bee.

“Spell Me This” begins with Poehler delivering the throwaway, “I’m sorry Nathan, there are no numbers in the word ‘important,’ ” and, unfortunately, it all goes downhill from there. The spot, like others in the campaign, ends with Poehler (and in this case the entire auditorium) running to Old Navy for a sale. It’s all pretty frustrating, as the scenario and Poehler’s involvement make for a lot of unfulfilled potential. Stick around after the jump for outtakes, which are at least slightly more entertaining than “Spell Me This” itself.
