Editor's Pick

Old Navy spokes-comedian Julia Louis-Dreyfus teams with Silicon Valley's Kumail Nanjiani to squeeze a million dollars from Snoop Dogg in this funny longform holiday film for the retailer, created out of Chandelier Creative.

The pair have become cat burglars, looking to rob the rap star, whom they tie up and grill while partaking in a festive tower of his recently baked profiteroles. (They must have heard of his new cannabis business, for which he'll surely be raking in the bucks).

As they question him on where he stashes his tubs of cash, Ms. Louis-Dreyfus comes to realize from her cohort that they perhaps could have more easily acquired their fortune by partaking in Old Navy's new contest, through which one lucky customer first in line at the store on Thanksgiving will win a million bucks.

Ultimately, they abandon their plot for Old Navy, but not before stealing a selfie with Snoop.
