Amy Poehler Goes From Lawyer to Fast-Food Worker in Old Navy Campaign

Want fashion with that?

Amy Poehler is back to grilling strangers about their Old Navy outfits.

Last month, she played a high-powered lawyer questioning a job applicant about her checkered pants. Here, she plays a server at a fast-food burrito joint, pressing a customer about a red dress.

It's not easy to dissociate Old Navy's Poehler from her intense part as Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation, but still fun to see the rapid-fire style translated to roles outside of a small-town middle-America bureaucracy. Like the law firm ad, the outtakes for the fast-food commercial include some added gems—including the evergreen gift of watching a usually deadpan comic lose it and crack up midtake.

That's assuming viewers don't run out to buy clothes before the video's done.
