Brad Pitt's Chanel Ad Is Embarrassing

I love Brad Pitt, but his new ad for Chanel No. 5 is cringe-making in its hollow, pretentious drivel.

(I normally like hollow, pretentious drivel, mind you, but not when it's this nonsensical and pseudo-profound.)

Recites Brad with a straight face:

"It's not a journey. Every journey ends, but we go on.

"The world turns and we turn with it.

"Plans disappear. Dreams take over.

"But wherever I go, there you are. My luck, my fate, my fortune.

"Chanel No. 5. Inevitable."


Ugh. I hate the use of the word "journey," even if they're telling us it's not a journey.

And the rest of the ad's thoughts belong in the intro to a soap opera or maybe they should be stuffed into a San Francisco fortune cookie.

But Brad sure is cute.

Inevitable.

"Seen all my dreams disappear -- But I'm Here."

 

Like Crystal Allen at the perfume counter!

If ever a commercial needed Angelina's leg, this was it.

And he delivers it with a flat monotone, trying to be deep. Ick.
