It’s the Summer of Christos

The American Express Superman & Seinfeld commercials are freakin hilarious. I haven’t seen any of the TV teasers here in the UK and I assume the longer pieces are internet only. They’re directed by Barry Levinson, who was responsible for one of my all-time favorites, Diner(that’s where I got the excellent idea of the Raider quiz for any potential lady of mine). The ads are great marketing by Amex. Besides being amusing, they do give some information about the card, e.g. I’ve had my green card since college and didn’t know they offered free roadside assistance. And correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t that “Puddy” as the voice of Superman?
(I do believe that you need Flash to view the ads)
