In 2017, Kat appeared in a two-parter commercial spot for the Masterpass brand, opposite former professional USA football player Joe Montana. First, Kat is surprised at the way a lady (actress Juliette Jeffers) pays for her juice, asking her “How did you do that?”. The lady replies “Masterpass”. When Joe Montana compliments Kat Dennings on her new chair, Dennings says she purchased it with MasterPass. Unfortunately, all that retired quarterback Montana hears is pass, pass, pass, as he hurls a yellow vase across the room. After the vase inevitably shatters into a million pieces, he asks Dennings if it was expensive, to which she responds “Priceless.” A clip from the first act as seen from a different angle was also made available.
