Once upon a time, Stephen Colbert was just another actor auditioning for paying gigs. One of those gigs, as it turns out, was an ad for the now-defunct FirsTier Bank.

While the freshed-face Colbert may have only been hawking the customer service capabilities of a regional financial institution, it's hard to resist his charm as he waxes on about banking convenience and "location location location." There's even a note of his trademark high-status snark in the copy. But more importantly, take a look at those graphics. They just don't make ads like this anymore.
