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.
