Chanel Releases Disheveled Brad Pitt Commercial

Posted by Shirley Brady on October 15, 2012 12:16 PM

As promised, Chanel has launched its TV campaign with Brad Pitt, its first male brand ambassador for Chanel No. 5, who reportedly took the gig for a cool $7 million. People magazine calls its a "smoldering" performance and "thoughtfully seductive"; others are cracking up or mystified. Your thoughts?


Cheryl United States says:

Brad is so sexy.  I'm going out to buy Channel No. 5 tonight.

Mrs. Jolie Pitt United Kingdom says:

The question isn't whether Pitt is debonair enough for Chanel - it's whether Chanel is tough (and scruff) enough for Brad!

Brave. Is this one of a kind or one in a series? Agree with your comment Ms. Jolie Pitt. I would have liked it more if it were for a Chanel male product.

Pathetic and ridiculous.  But I guess Brad is laughing all the way to the bank-  even he cannot be taking himself seriously.    Bad enough to put me right off Channel #5 (which I have previously worn).  YUCK

Brad Pitt's voice is beautiful.  It must be that the women he loves wears this wonderful fragrance. I know when you love someone you can smell their fragrance on your clothes, so that it seems to be a part of your love.
