This Chanel No. 5 Ad Is the Most Uncool Cool Thing Brad Pitt Has Ever Done

I don't mind that super popular A-list celebrities earn a little extra scratch making commercials. In fact, I even admire the reasons that George Clooney has stated for making overseas coffee commercials (they allow him the freedom to make modestly budgeted movies while still affording his Italia villa), but at least Clooney makes cool commercials. I have no doubt that most of the proceeds from Brad Pitt's Chanel No. 5 spot (directed by Joe Wright) will end up saving some third-world village, but dude: DUDE. This spot is ridiculously lame, horribly vacuous, and incredibly uncool.

The dead eyes aren't helping, bro.

Gotta say, though, it's still 92% less embarrassing than watching Gwyeth Paltrow and Cameron Diaz attempt to rap.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • I've never found him very attractive, but I could see why other people would.

    Not anymore. Now he's just gross and looks like he smells bad.

  • stardust

    It's like Joe Wright said, "Okay, Brad. Channel Vampire Louis, only with less life."

  • petitesuissesse

    My Swiss stepmother calls George Clooney the "Nescafe Man". I hope she starts calling Brad Pitt "No.5".

  • bleujayone

    And this ad is "No.2".

  • BWeaves

    Nope. Doesn't do it for me.

  • Kylie

    It feels like they wrote this with Tom Cruise in mind

  • ,

    It's taken awhile, but finally other people are noticing the thousand-yard stare I've always seen since he took up with the succubus.

  • dizzylucy

    Lame. And in no way makes me want to buy perfume.
    He has a nice voice though.

  • lowercase_ryan

    was anyone else hoping that, instead of the chanel bottle fading in at the end, it was the honey bear bong from True Romance?

  • Judge Holdenmynuts

    "don't condinsend me maaan.... i'll fuckin kill you ...."

  • mairimba

    I was expecting him to rip his shirt open around the 0:16 mark, right after he looks directly at the camera. Though that look almost made me rip off mine.

  • That... made no sense. And yet, his voice did for me what his looks never really have. I'm with Anna vB; I'd still do him.

  • Jennings

    Are his eyes following one of those 'crazy cat' lasers?

  • Leigh

    LOL! That's exactly what it looks like... I stopped watching 'cause it made me dizzy.

  • I blame Joe Wright, is that wrong?

  • southworth

    I think Brad Pitt may have phoned in this stinkwater commercial.

  • Sams

    Have to agree. His "acting" in the commercial harks back to the Brad Pitt of years past who was stiff and self conscious on camera. Not the Moneyball Brad who was more natural.

  • Anna von Beav

    I'd still let him put it in me.

  • TK


  • Anna von Beav

    STAHP coughing on me! You're going to make me sick!

  • TK

    You already are.
