  1. I think Rainn is pretty awesome and unique and that makes me wonder why he did ads for such a “generic” company. I don’t understand it (and I thought the same for Poehler/Arnett last year).

  2. I’m not huge on Gap ads, but I LOVED both of them! Not only do I have a thing for The Office, but I have always had a crush on Jon Heder, too!
    And Rainn comes across so sweet in the second one:)

  3. Rainn said, “No.” LOL The first one was cool, but the second one made me smile the whole time. How adorable!

  4. Ok, that was soooo awesome…

    except Sandra Bernhard. She’s just freakin’ SCARY.

    Loved the duet and Rainn is just too…wow. :)

  5. Wow, I JUST got my copy of Entertainment Weekly, saw Rainn Wilson’s handsom mug on the back cover and came upstairs to see if the great Tanster had heard about this yet. Lo and behold, it’s here! Haha.

    I’d like to see Jenna do the cool winter Gap ads one year. :)

  6. “There’s your money shot” hahahahahahahahahaha

    I don’t know which Gap ad I like more – John’s or Rainn’s….. so hard to choose.

  7. The second clip was perfect! I absolutely loved it.
    (And Selma’s cardigan is cute, I just might have to go out and get it now… i guess their advertising worked!)

  8. “I think Rainn is pretty awesome and unique and that makes me wonder why he did ads for such a “generic” company. I don’t understand it (and I thought the same for Poehler/Arnett last year).”

    ummm…. i’m guessing however many thousands of $ they were paid for a day’s work probably had something to do with it.

  9. Seeing these makes me feel better about having put up the tree in our dorm a week ago! I love christmas and rainn makes it so much better!

  10. i got through the first part of the first vid and found it kind of meh but the rainn/selma one was absolutely adorkable :)!

  11. Who need snow when you’ve got Rainn? He’s so adorable. And he’s singing my favorite Christmas song? Awesome. Love these. Thanks for posting! Can’t wait to see ’em on the telly!

  12. “….no.”

    hahah nice! The rest of the commercial and the first one I didn’t like so much. But the above line completely made up for it.

  13. I love that Rainn is being seduced in the perfect flip for this song. There are several other great commercials on the Gap website, but of course, Rainn’s RULE!!

  14. Ha, I’m going to the Gap today to buy new sweaters. Good job, Gap advertisers.

    Loved Rainn in the second one. He’s so silly.

  15. Rainn, you are sooooooo funny! I won’t buy sweaters (sorry, Gap), but I know I’ll be watching these ads to keep my holiday spirits up over the next 2 months!
