Brad Pitt. In one of the lamest commercials of the year.
As I watched it for the first time the other night, I thought it was a satire of other "sensual" ad campaigns, and would turn out to be an ad for Chevy trucks or Geico. I kept waiting for him to start laughing. But he didn't. The rest of us did.
I could think of so many other actors more suited for this role. My
Bottles of Chanel No. 5 would be flying off the shelves if one of these two peddled the perfume. Alas, we get scruffy Mr. Pitt. (Sorry, I've always been a member of Team Aniston, so there you go.)
Of course, for a perfume that's been around for more than 90 years, they missed the boat in not signing a male spokesperson earlier...
What do you think of Chanel's new ad campaign?
