Brad Pitt has, for as long as he's been on the big screen, been able to charm just about everyone he comes into contact with. He's big into causes like wife-to-be Angelina Jolie, and tends to exude his movie-star charisma in real-life by merging good looks with a good sense of humor. Fans of both sexes openly admire him, and while he hasn't chosen too many projects one could deem a failure, he's being mocked pretty hard for this Chanel No. 5 ad.
Pitt appears in black and white (obviously, as it's artsy) and appears to be channeling some old-school Calvin Klein commercials as he waxes poetic about love and fate before hocking the scent.
when i open up the global NYT on my browser the LAST thing i want to see is a Chanel no 5 Brad Pitt ad
Brad Pitt's Chanel No.5 commercial is ummm, deep? artistic? ... i'm going with AWKWARD. http://t.co/Afmxl6tO
What's more embarrassing? Brad Pitt's Chanel ad or Angelina Jolie's Oscar leg? http://t.co/ZVXoHIvw
After watching Brad Pitt’s Chanel No.5 ad, I was like, “WHAAAATTT?” http://t.co/8jSBzWU1
I think I can handle Brad Pitt's awful ad better if I think of it as secret code for 'Jen, take me back!! I've been trapped by a witch!!!'
My whole family just laughed out loud at that Brad Pitt Chanel No. 5 ad
