Fey to Shill for Credit Card Company
Remember when it was Karl Malden and his gargantuan nose encouraging us to use American Express products? Now that I think about it, I'm not sure he actually did the credit cards ads, he may have just pitched the travelers' checks. Hmmm....
Anyway, AmEx is apparently planning to upgrade in the spokesperson category. A brief entry at Canada.com reveals that the plastic (that's plastique if you're toting "platinum" status) provider will snag none other than the beautiful, witty and cryptically scarred Tina Fey as a pitch person.
The gossipy column in which the statement appears also spends time talking about Andy Dick's peeing habits and an upcoming Brad Pitt movie. If you're having a celeb-gossip jones, check it out.
Here's the comment pertaining to Tina Fey:
"Watch for Tina Fey in the next series of TV and print ads for American Express."
Short but sweet.
