Brad Pitt’s Commercials for Chanel No.5 are Stupid.



Brad Pitt, 48, is pretty cool and no matter how many crappy movies he puts out between good movies, it never seems to stop him from getting A pictures; where most other actors would be shaking their old asses on ABC’s hilariously titled, “Dancing With The Stars.” Pitt has maintained the public’s interest in him by banging some of Hollywood’s skinniest chicks; Juliette Lewis, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston and now Angelina Jolie.

Pitt always radiates on screen when in character, but if you ever saw him talk in an interview you’d swear he worked at a 7-11 in Ohio and wasn’t a millionaire movie Star; that’s why he’s an actor who needs good scripts to play off of; he didn’t find it in these loopy commercials, that have most people wondering what the people behind the scenes were sniffing besides perfume.

Pitt is the first man to ever do a Chanel No.5 ad, and probably the last. He reportedly got 7 million for indorsing the classic women’s perfume, that always reminds me of Grandma; when they laid her out at Dave’s Discount Funeral Home, off Route 1 by Piggly Wiggly.

Pitt appears in the commercial looking every bit of his age and acting like he’s stoned; or bored I can’t tell. The commercial is suppose to be sexy, but had me laughing hysterically; I almost thought they were Saturday Night Live sketches. To think people got paid big bucks to work on these and this is what they came up with? Insane.


In the strangely hypnotic commercial’s, Pitt says things like, “It’s not a journey, but every journey ends and we go on.” WTF? You’d think Chanel would have had the sense not to release it, but they did. Pitt isn’t even shot well and his eyes seem to be darting, like he’s thinking, “this is so stupid, but I need the money for my 6 kids and their college fund.”

Chanel, finally realizing they had a stinker on their hands, released a second commercial; which fairs no better, and looks more awkward then trying to French kiss a girl with braces. Whoever wrote and produced this crap should be put in a room and be forced to listen to Kathy Lee Gilford’s, “It's Christmas Time.” CD, until they produce a better commercial for Mr. Brad Pitt.
