Melissa McCarthy is the latest celebrity to jump on the Old Navy commercial train. Following in the footsteps of Kristin Chenoweth, Fran Drescher and George Takei, McCarthy is featured in a cutesy Old Navy commercial promoting the store’s Black Friday deals.
Directed by Roman Coppola, the ad features McCarthy as a contestant on a retro game show called “Overnight Millionaire.” While she expects to win something like a houseboat, she gets towels instead, which drives her to try to win Old Navy’s $1 million giveaway instead.
The company is giving the first 500 customers in line at every Old Navy retailer on Nov. 28 the chance to be entered for the $1 million giveaway. But they’ll be winners already, because Old Navy is offering 50 percent off everything in their stores on Thursday and Friday.
Does seeing McCarthy in this commercial make you want to visit Old Navy more?
