Ad of the Day: American Express - Tina Fey Buys 20

Comedy performer and writer Tina Fey does her thing in this slick ad for American Express. Unusually for a credit card endorsed by a well-known figure, the proposition isn't subsumed by the wit / charm / glamour / mere presence of the sleb themselves. Instead, it has an integral role in the script, making this not simply a very entertaining spot but a hardworking one too.
