Amy Poehler in Best Buy’s ad

Actress and comedian Amy Poehler will follow in the footsteps of Justin Bieber, Ozzy Osbourne and a slew of technology innovators, and will star in Best Buy’s Super Bowl commercial next month, the company announced Wednesday.

The star of NBC’s Parks and Recreation and an alumna of Saturday Night Live, Poehler is coming off a well-received performance co-hosting the Golden Globes with Tina Fey earlier this month.

Scott Durchslag, president of online and global e-commerce for Best Buy, described Poehler in an AP interview as “this comedic everyperson who can make things simple,” which is in line with the company’s own goals.

The 30-second spot will air in the first quarter of the game on Feb. 3.
