Leave it to Amy Poehler to mix food, fashion and comedy together flawlessly.

The Parks and Recreation actress stars in a series of fresh new Old Navy commercials this spring, and now we're wildly convinced that the comedian is the perfect person to push affordable clothing to the masses.

In the clip above, the hilarious actress plays a Mexican restaurant employee who has an undying passion for chic looks that won't break the bank.

And while we know that Amy can act out any role with ease, it's comforting to hear from the actress in exclusive behind-the-scenes footage that she can totally relate to shopping frugally in real life.

"I grew up very middle class. My parents were both elementary school teachers, so we were always looking for good deals," the actress, who added that she was very impressed with the Old Navy outfits on set, shared.

"I think expensive clothes are usually gross!" she joked.

Looks like this is a match made in heaven.
