This back-to-school Old Navy ad turns Amy Poehler into a spelling bee moderator, who is just as funny as ever. The advertisement for the #RunToOldNavy event has Poehler ask a student to spell the word sensational, which also happens to describe her feelings on the student's outfit. From here, the spelling bee is veered off course when Poehler discovers the unbelievable price of the items and needs to clarify some things before she can even think about continuing.

The 'Spell Me This' commercial comes to a quick, amusing end when Poehler tosses a trophy in the direction of the competing kids, declaring everyone a winner as she immediately starts a sprint towards the nearest Old Navy store to score some back to school deals.
