Brad Pitt is the first ever man to be the spokesperson for Chanel’s iconic fragrance Chanel No.5, and today the fashion house released the first ad starring the actor. And I am rolling my eyes. Hard. And also stifling my laughter, because this video is ridiculous.
I did a quick online search and everyone is talking about how ‘sexy’ and ‘sultry’ Brad is in this video, but all I can think of is how cheesy it is and how cheesy he looks doing it. Even the script is ridiculously cheesy with lines like ”It’s not a journey, every journey ends and we go on. Wherever I go, there you are.” “My luck, my fate, my fortune. Chanel No. 5. Inevitable.”
Come on! I was even a bit uncomfortable watching the video because I was just a little embarrassed for him! It totally reminded me of one of those Japanese commercials big name actors do because they pay them tons of money and they’re never seen in North America so they don’t really care what they look like except this one is seen in North America and he looks ridiculous. Please ladies, tell me you don’t find this sexy?
Cannot wait to see the SNL parody of this one!
