It’s safe to say that comic genius Amy Poehler has made almost everything under the sun seem cool, from waffles to government to world news. So it comes as no surprise that in her latest gig, headlining a series of Old Navy commercials, Poehler is making something as mundane as pants downright awesome — and hilarious.
We’ve only seen one of these commercials so far, but judging from the 30 second spot below — where Poehler obsesses over a potential employee’s pants during a job interview — it’s safe to say we can expect to laugh a lot more as the rest of these spots unveil themselves. And if that’s not enough, there’s also an outtake video that showcases the Parks and Recreation star at her best, causing us to realize that if we ever had to be in her presence we would probably be ruining take after take. (Notable gem: “Would it be weird if I bought the same ones? And we wore them on the same day? And we went to the beach together? Don’t answer that question.”)
Come on, admit it — now you wish there was an episode where Leslie makes Ann try on all sorts of Old Navy pants and gives her BFF opinion on them. (Maybe she’ll just go to Ann’s house and make her new baby try on clothes from the Old Navy kids line instead.)
