Being an American Express member brings various perks, no matter who you are, as seen in this new spot starring comedian/actress Carrie Brownstein, created out of Ogilvy & Mather New York and directed by Imperial Woodpecker's Stacy Wall.

Brownstein is quite the creative polymath--she's star of IFC hipster sketch comedy show Portlandia, and was also guitarist/vocalist for Sleater-Kinney. Turns out, she also had a short stint in the ad world at Wieden Kennedy. In this new spot, her many talents are on display as she plays a businessman, drill sergeant sitar instructor and big box-shopping mom, all who enjoy the benefits of being in the Amex card-carrying club.
