Stephen King For American Express


Instead of saying he wrote “Carrie”, he carries the American Express Card. Delicious! These celebrity American Express commercials were a staple on television for many many years and then they just disappeared. I wonder why. I found them very comforting.

This is one of my favorites because I love the idea of Stephen King walking around with a candelabra in a suit borrowed from Vincent Price. Happy October 1st!
