Stuck in a car at the holidays

Anna Kendrick is great at waiting. She did plenty of it in her first holiday commercial for Kate Spade, a year ago at this time. Now, she's back for another holiday spot. And in addition to her ever-present dog, she has another friendly companion—Mad Men and Girls star Zosia Mamet.

As in last year's short film, the humor is again centered on an unexpected inconvenience that leaves the characters bored—but luxuriously so, since they have some fancy presents to play with. And if the jokes are awkward, that's pretty much the point—and it's fun to see these very different actress banter about whether they could actually be friends.

Marielle Heller directed the spot. Watch through to the end for full credits. And see below for the three previous installments in Kendrick's "Miss Adventure" series for the brand.
