Jerry Seinfeld has returned to pitch American Express card products. The new 30-sec and 60-sec TV spots will debut on this weekend’s Academy Awards. The new commercial is Seinfeld’s first new creative work to appear on network television since the AmEx commercial titled “Drugstore” aired in 1999 which promoted double AmEx points at drug stores nationwide. In the new commercial to air Sunday night, Seinfeld discovers many uses for his American Express Card at the hardware store as he humorously tries to fix a broken cuckoo clock in his New York apartment. The commercial is a collaborative effort of Seinfeld and Ogilvy & Mather. AmEx has historically debuted Seinfeld spots during big events including the Super Bowl. The new AmEx spot will be available on Cardwatch ([www.cardwatch.com]).(CF Library 1/19/99; 3/9/99).
