Tina Fey's 1995 Bank Commercial, Plus More Early Celebrity Commercials

Tina FeyLadies and gentlemen, one of Tina Fey's first acting gigs has been unearthed and it's painfully hilarious.

It's straight-up Liz Lemon from '30 Rock' in every way possible. The hair. The clothing. It's wonderful.

Check out Fey's Mutual Savings Bank Commercial that was brought to light by Gawker, then check out Liz's first commercial from '30 Rock' and vote in the poll. I don't know about you guys, but after watching this commercial I'm even more excited for the new season of '30 Rock' (Thurs., Sept. 23 at 8:30PM on NBC).

Here's Fey in all her 1990s glory:



And here's Fey as Liz Lemon on '30 Rock':



Which commercial is funnier?
Tina Fey's 1995 Mutual Savings Bank.1643 (20.5%)
Liz Lemon's 1-900-OK-Face.6388 (79.5%)


This got as thinking about other earlier commercial work done by our favorite stars. Check out these finds!

Is that Gabby from Sesame Street in the Jello commercial?

Since Fey's foray with her Sarah Palin impersonations, I only see her as a political tool. This pretty much spoiled my view of her. I don't like anything she does now.

And Tina Fey makes fun of Sarah Palin for not having brains?

You obviously have not seen the "beauty queen" videos and photo of Ms Pailin.

Did anyone else notice that Brad Pitt wasn't in the car in the last shot? There were different people!

Jimmy, Sandra Bullock was married to Jesse James. If you were a real doctor, you would know how to spell doctor with an o not an e. Also you would not be trolling AOL looking for a date talking about your profession and wealth. Real ones just don't do that and don't have to do it.

I took an interest in Tina Fey when she dogpiled in on the muzzling of Sarah Palin, 2008. I looked up "fey" in Mirriam-Webster. It means, "doom."
