The Amy Poehler questions you didn’t hear on TV

Is there anything Amy Poehler can't do? Not only does she (with the help of Tina Fey) make award shows watchable (see: Golden Globes), but she can also do the same thing for commercials.

Amy Poehler's ad for Best Buy was definitely a first-half highlight. In the spot, the "SNL" alum asks an unflappable Best Buy employee a slew of questions, many of them borderline inappropriate ("Does it make you uncomfortable when I use the word 'dongle'?").

Yes, Amy, but in a good way. The 30-second spot is a winner, but if you ask us, the minute-long extended cut is even better. A sampling of Poehler's best lines:

  • [While examining a camera] "How many megapixels does one really need?"

  • "Do you deliver?" [Dramatic pause, then sexy look to baffled employee.] "No, I mean: Do you deliver?"

  • "Which washing machine is the most vibrate-iest?

  • "Can this [cell phone] transfer all my pictures of puppies dressed up like hot dogs?"

You can watch the full minute-long clip above. We could have stuck around for another 45 seconds. Maybe even 50.
