Old Navy Taps Amy Poehler for New Campaign
Old Navy has tapped Amy Poehler for a series of ads set to run through this summer.
The “Parks and Recreation” actress is starring in, as well as helping to write and direct the spots. In the first ad, slated to break tonight during American Idol, Ms. Poehler plays an executive at a law firm. When a job candidate enters her office for an interview, Ms. Poehler is sidetracked by the woman’s outfit, which is, naturally, from Old Navy.
“There’s something about creating a sense of urgency around the product and this reaction of, ‘I just have to run out there and get down to Old Navy,’” explained Ivan Wicksteed, global CMO at Old Navy. “It’s a format for TV that works for us.”
After running a Black Friday ad featuring Melissa McCarthy — she runs off the set of a game show to get to Old Navy — Mr. Wicksteed said the brand began playing around with other, similar scenarios. The brand had a hugely successful Black Friday on the back of that ad, Mr. Wicksteed said.
“We approached Amy with a list of scenarios we’d come up with, and she started playing around with them too. She liked some, didn’t like some, came up with some new ones,” Mr. Wicksteed said. “Amy is protective of her own brand and thinks very carefully about who she wants to work with. I think that was an important consideration in deciding to work with us. We gave her a lot of creative control. We’re not dictating what she has to say in advertisements.”
Chandelier Creative, New York is handling the campaign, which will also air during “Parks and Recreation,” as well as an airing of “Saturday Night Live: The Best of Amy Poehler.”
Mr. Wicksteed, an alum of Cole Haan and Coca-Cola, said the ads represent an evolution in his thinking about the brand, since joining a year ago. For Old Navy, it’s important to inject humor but not at the expense of having a strong fashion point of view. “This work, even though it has a sense of humor is very, very focused on the product, the desirability of the product,” he explained. “I felt in a lot of the previous work, the product was an afterthought and not essential to the script or idea.”
Old Navy’s marketing approach and sales results have been spotty in recent years. For fiscal year 2013, the brand reported a 2% increase in same-store sales globally, compared to a 6% increase the year prior.
“There’s still a lot of work to be done, quite honestly, in terms of changing people’s perceptions of Old Navy,” Mr. Wicksteed said. “There are a lot of people who think of Old Navy as selling clothes that don’t look particularly good and don’t fit really well, and that’s just not true.”

Amy Poehler Lends Voice To “The Awesomes”
Seth Meyers may have said goodbye to Saturday Night Live, but he’s not done with his castmates.
The former head writer, who will start his new gig as host of Late Night on Feb. 24, has recruited a few more SNL veterans – Amy Poehler, Will Forte, Maya Rudolph and Kate McKinnon– for the second season of his Hulu animated comedy, The Awesomes.
Hulu renewed the long-gestating series, co-created by Meyers and Late Night producer Mike Shoemaker, for another 10 episodes back in September, noting at that time that the superhero entry was regularly a top 10 show on the service, and among the top five animated shows on offer. Though the streaming service has yet to settle on a premiere date, season two is being eyed for a summer run.
The comedy tells the origin story of a superhero clan, The Awesomes, that is forced to reform from the ground up after the departure of their leader inspires all the other members to go their separate ways. Prock, voiced by Meyers, the former leader’s son and the group’s only holdover, assembles a team of leftover superheroes to round out the team. The show’s second season is expected to incorporate new supervillains and superheroes, with the team taking on new challenges — which could include an unexpected love triangle — under the leadership of Professor Doctor Awesome (Prock).
Forte will be voicing the role of Malocchio Jr., the son of season one archvillain Dr. Malocchio (Bill Hader) and an accountant with, allegedly, no interest in a life of villainy. For their part, Rudolph is set to play Lady Malocchio, the wife of Dr. Malocchio, while McKinnon has been tapped for the role of Lola Gold, a TV producer who wants to build a reality show around the lives of the Awesomes; whether she has ulterior motives is an open question.
Poehler, who recently returned to SNL for Meyers’ final show, is in as Jaclyn Stone, a hard-edged prosecutor who faces off against Prock as she tries Perfect Man (voiced by Seth Meyers’ younger brother Josh Meyers) for conspiring with Dr. Malocchio. Following the trial, sparks fly between Stone and Prock, creating a triangle with Hotwire (Rashida Jones), whom Prock believes was killed at the end of last season.
Many of Meyers and Shoemaker’s friends will be back to voice the coterie of characters for season two. The show’s first season included Muscleman (voiced by Ike Barinholtz), Frantic (Taran Killam), their secretary Concierge (Emily Spivey), the evil Dr. Malocchio (Hader), Hotwire (Jones) and Impresario (Kenan Thompson).
